Today I’m doing something completely different!!
I read Terry’s blog just now, and I found the concept of the daily prompt quite interesting, so I decided to join in. The ‘rules’ are as follows:
Pick a random word and do Google image search on it. Check out the eleventh picture it brings up. Write about whatever that image brings to mind.
And since Terry already used my first choice for a word, I went with one that I am seriously lacking – PATIENCE!!!! And this is picture no.11:
We all know that ‘patience is a virtue’ – no surprises there. I know it too…I’ve heard it often enough from people witnessing my absolute lack of said virtue. 🙂
What thoughts and emotions does this picture bring up?
Well, to start off with, I like the lack of ‘stuff’ and distractions in the picture. I wish that every time I lose my patience, I have as little stimuli around me – that will definitely help calm me down. But life is not like that. We are surrounded by people, and motor cars, and noise, and other things, which normally aggravates the situation.
I also know for a fact that this picture is misleading. I can look like that cat. I can sit or stand very still and look like I’m waiting patiently, but inside everything is churning and bubbling away… The muscles and nerves are all bunched up and ready to pounce!
I’ve tried. I really have tried to be more patient, but I’m sorry to say, I don’t think I’ve made any headway. So my loved ones will just have to use me up the way I am! 🙂
Like I mentioned in my previous post, I’m spending some precious time with my one and only daughter to do some very important stuff for the wedding. I am loving the time with her, and I’m packing away memories like crazy, to help me through tough times to come…
