Different from weight loss (the shedding of pounds), wait loss (the shedding of patience) is less attractive on any figure.
I try not to do battle with time; clearly, it’s a losing proposition. Yet recently I found myself sitting in a waiting room swarming with other people who—like me—were becoming impatient. Fast!
Breathe yourself through this Laurie…
- Inhale to the count of four.
- Hold to the count of seven.
- Exhale to the count of eight.
- Repeat until your name is called.
- You can do this.
Time—yours, mine, and ours—is irreplaceable. None of us knows how much of it we have left. Not to be squandered, every moment of this precious commodity should be enjoyed to the fullest.
Are you gaining or losing wait?
“Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing.”
