Lesson

 I am taking a Buddhism study class on Friday afternoons (through the miracle of Zoom).

Yesterday after a small group discussion the leader asked for people to share what they may have learned from that discussion.  We were talking about patience and resilience. I was just starting to share that my take away was from what one person said about how we may have to start by learning to be patient with our impatience when something happened and I just got booted off Zoom.

When a tried to log back on I just got the loading circle of this is not working. Then a message would pop up that Zoom did not load. It happened several times. I went to get a glass of water and decided I would try one more time before just moving on to something else. That time I got right back to the meeting.

So obviously, patience was exactly what the universe had to teach me yesterday!

Oh, I have never seen that definition of Patience before, and it hit me right between the eyes. For a person who likes to have her ducks in a row, no wonder I frequently have to fight impatience.
My surgery recovery periods, twice in six months, have been an exercise in patience. I fail often.

I'm smiling here knowing that I often have to remind myself to be patient.

Lesson learned . . . and we all need all the patience we can get with the vaccine rollout.

That was funny and a really direct example of when patience is necessary.

Patience is not one of my virtues. I must work on it more.

I love that definition of patience. And maybe the at the next class time you can share your patience practicing experience! How appropriate! Ha Ha!
