Patience My Dear

Patience is a virtue I am lacking.  It’s not that I don’t know that things take time, that things must be worked towards, that instant gratification rarely happens, it’s just that I want to have the results now, the good or bad ending, I want it now!  Even when I read a book I often skim the ending to know how things turned out, I want to know what my payoff will be for my time.   The ending of a movie, sure, tell me, I don’t feel it spoils it!  I always want to know what gifts the gifts are for my birthday or Christmas.  I hate having to wait to give someone else a surprise, it drives me nuts.   Surprises aren’t fun for me, so keeping me guessing won’t be fun and I hate holding in a surprise.   I think more than anything, I don’t want to feel I’m wasting my time in an endeavor, so I want to get there quickly and efficiently.  Anything that is worth doing is worth doing well.  That rushed approach is probably no way to live life, but unfortunately it is one of my weaknesses.  Yes, I admit it is a shortcoming I should probably try to overcome, but can I be patient enough, time will tell.
