If patience is a virtue, then I am a woman without virtues…


Forever fiercely an impatient one, I struggle with living in the status quo. I set goals. I achieve them. And then, I start seeking for the next big goal to obtain. Maybe it’s a degree. Maybe it’s a trip. Maybe it’s a job.

Maybe it’s wrong, but that’s who I am. And that’s precisely where I am as I write this posting. So exactly 14 months, 1 week, and 2 days after realizing what I want to “be when I grow up”, I have not, yet, achieved that goal.

But what I have achieved is a new appreciation of opening my heart, my mind, and my eyes to what the Universe has in store for me. Aa dear friend told me, “You are waiting for your present to catch up with your future.” Yes, yes, a thousand-fold, yes!!!

So, what does this self-imposed-task-master do? I plot. I plan. I ever-so-gently give the Universe a little kick in the arse to get going on the Leslie-plan. While selfish it may sound, the outcome of it will be not. It’s about being the good. It’s about using that which could limit me to make my life limitless-all the while being fabulous.

And as a woman without the virtue of being patient, I’d challenge others to do the same, if the intent is to do good. And so it is.
