I have a confession to make. I’m an impatient person. It is so bad at times I actually drive myself mad.
If people say five minutes at 5.01, I’m frustrated.
If someone says I’ll get right on it. I’m expecting them to mean now.
As a mother I drive my kids mad. I shout upstairs “come down here” 10 seconds after I’m shouting again “where are you”. I’m ashamed to say I actually even get annoyed when they are on the loo. I mean how long does it take to pee?
I scream at the computer for loading the page to slow.
Record all programmes as adverts drive me mad.
Slow drivers are the bane of my life.
I don’t like being this way. I have this illusion of being a free-spirited woman with no concept of time. Just going with the flow but I fail terribly.
I am a lot better than I used to be. When I first had my children they never had to do anything. Not because I spoiled them, no I was just too impatient to wait for them.
Having Livvy changed me a lot, nothing I did would hurry her up. Seizures would happen just as we were about to leave. Plans would have to be changed. I did learn how to just take one day at a time.
Why am I telling you all this. Well simply I find myself going back to the old ways. The impatient, frustrated woman is taking over and I seriously like don’t like it.
Summer is around the corner and I want to relax and enjoy the warm days. So here on my blog I am making myself accountable. The next time I get frustrated or impatient I will remind myself of the person I want to be.
Do you have to hold yourself accountable for any reason?
