Surprisingly, many people think of me as a patient man. I’m always amazed at that assessment because I know the truth – I’m not as patient as I appear or would ultimately like to be. Patience is probably one of life’s hardest and most important lessons. To learn patience…well, you have to be patient.
True patience is hard to attain because it competes against so many of your other emotions. Emotions that can unleash themselves in a hurry and without restraint if you’re not paying close attention. I’m a long ways from really being patient but I appreciate that some people think I am – that hopefully means I’m making progress.
