Pray for patience…

Its another glorious day to be alive and I am ashamed to say I did not start the day off well…I’ve still got time to turn it around though! 😉 I didn’t mention this yesterday but in the midst of all this excitement over the last month I’ve moved, twice – SOOOO FUN!

waterfallpushI’m not a fan of moving, though I haven’t met anyone who is excited by the prospect of hauling boxes, carrying awkwardly shaped items & fitting furniture through doorways that are too small, so I think its fair to say I’m not alone! The endless array of frustrations are enough to drive anyone mad, but when you’re already a little nutty, its enough to push you over the edge (I thought it would be funny to include this shot of me pretending to push my wonderful fiance over the edge, haha!).

Its times like this when I used to pray for patience. That was, of course, until my Aunt quite aptly pointed out that the more you pray for patience the more opportunities God gives you to practice…rather genius but never the less not helping my cause!

I thought about it, and instead of praying for patience when I am frustrated, I am just going to laugh – laugh at myself, laugh at the situation, laugh at the way life throws you curve balls you can never expect but you’ve got to roll with anyway…just laugh! My hope is the laughter will activate the ventromedial prefrontal cortex that produces endorphins and I will go from frustrated to happy….we shall see! 

‘Til next time, keep smiling!

  1. You know what? That works!!! I’ve been doing it for years and laughing is the always the best policy! You’ll see the difference it makes and I’m sure you’ll like it!
