My patience level is at zero today and I have no idea why. I am at work and worry that I am taking out my lack of patience on people around me, which is definitely not like me at all. I'm frustrated with people who are not doing their jobs, or have zero concern about giving correct information to students. Why can't people take pride in their jobs, in their performance at work and in how they represent where they work?
And how do I stop being so short tempered or have such low patience? I'm doing everything I can today to stay calm...deep breaths, going for a short walk, fresh air, you name it I probably tried it. I just feel this knot of anxiety or anger building up in me and I do not like it. I'm looking forward to the gym tonight to work out some of these feelings, but I might not make it all that long. And I don't want these emotions to wreck the work I've been doing. What I really want to do is to eat all sorts of bad things! But I'm trying to be mindful to not go back to my comfort foods. I do recognize that these colleagues are not worth ruining all of my successes in the last eight weeks.
Where is my lack of patience coming from? I have no idea, but clearly I have to work on getting it under control. Suggestions welcome!
Have a great week everyone!
