Every day I pray for wisdom, courage, strength, and patience amongst other things. It is important to ask for tools to improve my persona rather than materialistic things.
The one thing I struggle with is patience and sometimes I feel like it is a curse especially when it involves the very people I love. It leaves me with a feeling of guilt and shame.
I like to see myself as dependable, consistent, always on time and will never let you down. I believe that today this is a rare quality as people seem to have a laid-back attitude towards life.
The professional skills that were essential in the workplace have now been downgraded.
I have zero tolerance for the unreliable and selfishness of people.
People suffering from mental health difficulties sometimes struggle to get out of bed in the morning and it can take them longer to get ready. I would normally give them a reasonable timeframe that I would make myself available.
The other end of the scale are the people who are too laid back and will turn up when they feel it suits them. I will never accept this selfish act and have zero tolerance for it.
If a person asks me to complete a job for them, I will do it as soon as possible and I will see it through to the end. If there are any problems, I will keep them informed.
There are incidents where you find yourself having to chase someone up about a job they promised to complete. This can be embarrassing. I believe that if you volunteer to do a job you should make it a priority.
I am not particularly good at queuing up especially when the person at the front is taking up a lot of the cashier’s time by talking and not concentrating on packing their goods It leaves me feeling frustrated and terribly angry.
My worse dislikes are meetings of any kind where there is always a certain type of people who have no consideration for others
The offenders tend to take over the space in the meeting and over-talk giving no one else a chance to share their views. This is an ongoing problem in a lot of groups. There should always be a strict moderator on the team.
I have mentioned many times before in my blogs that I have an incredibly low concentration span. When having a conversation, I like a person to get straight to the point or my brain just shuts down.
All the things that I have mentioned I make sure that I am in no way like that. I find myself having to remind myself to be mindful of other people.
At the end of the day, I must look out for my own wellbeing.
The technique I use when I am in any of these situations is to breathe and if that does not work, I will then have to say something.
I embrace my moments of silence where the only noise that I can hear are the sounds of nature.
I embrace the peace of being left alone with myself and doing something quietly in my own space with no one else around.
I embrace the beauty of relaxation, which is a rarity for me, where I can just lie or sit and think of nothing.
The idea just to switch off from the rest of the world is absolute bliss.
IF YOU FEEL THAT YOUR SPACE IS BEING INVADED, SAY SOMETHING!
WALK AWAY FROM ANY SITUATION THAT AFFECTS YOUR EQUILIBRUM!
DON’T FEEL GUILTY FOR BEING YOU!!
DON’T FEEL YOU HAVE TO APOLOGISE FOR THE WAY YOU FEEL!!
DON’T LET THE TIME OFFENDERS OFF LIGHTLY!!
In everything there must be a balance.
The Scripture of Balance
