10:52 am: 30 Days of Truth: Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Patience. I work so hard on patience... with Teddy, with Peter, with work, with myself.

In my mind, patience is tightly coupled with listening. Just letting someone talk something out, not interjecting my solutions and my answers and my responses.

Both the patience and the listening are really, really hard work. Really hard work.

I always want to jump to those solutions and answers and responses. I want to fix things. There are always things to be fixed! Maybe I can help!

I know, in my heart, how important the listening is when I'm talking. I know, in my brain, how important the listening is when someone else is talking. Unfortunately, my mouth is sometimes not as connected to my brain as it is to my heart.

So I'm working on it. I'm trying to change it. Because it will make me a better person.

Or at least a less annoying one.

Updates on Teddy, the end of kindergarten, dump your progeny at work day, etc., coming soon. Maybe even later today, if work closes early (not unlikely).

I think it may be too late for me to be a better person--I've never had a lot of patience with some things. Maybe the supply gets used up on all the others!

Hope your efforts succeed.
