Patience is not my thing. It never has been. However, right now I'm practicing patience. It's my New Year's resolution. I need more of it in my everyday life and now, I need it more than ever for my hip. I realize I can't heal overnight and I need to accept my daily progress and feel content with that. But, it's tough. There are days that I feel like I'm not making progress and days that I feel like I'll never get back where I want to be.
Right now, patience means keeping my mind distracted, so I'm taking on additional work projects, I'm studying for my APR (public relations accreditation) and I'm taking pottery classes. Oh, and I'm working on my snowman and snowball making skills.
If anyone has another good activity/distraction or cure for impatience, please share.
