Impatience is not a great trait to have.

I am finding that I am turning into an impatient person.
I was not patient this week when my washer went out. With 5 people in my family.... loads add up quick. So hubby and I shopped on Monday for a new one. We picked out a nice energy efficient top loader washer and when the sales associate was checking on the machine's availability I told her that I needed it by tomorrow. My hubby just laughs and says, "geez are you demanding". It turns out that we can get the new washer by Thursday and I seriously was going to take another look at one that we could get the next day.
Why....? Because I am impatient!
Yesterday I had my appointment with the ENT specialist for the cyst on my thyroid. Let me tell ya.... was that an interesting appointment. What I thought would be just a "getting information visit" turned into him shoving a camera down my nose. (Not pleasant) He did numb my nose and throat though and when I asked him how long I will be numb he said about 15 more minutes.... well that turned into over an hour. Guess he should check his estimates more. Where is the impatience here? Well he wanted to watch the cyst over the next three months to see if it grows or looks different. From there, he would then do a biopsy. WHAT? You are going to make me wait for 3 months and then possibly longer? Doesn't he know that I am an impatient person and I can't wait that long? Well he must have heard it in my tone of my voice because he changed his mind and I will now be having that biopsy in the next few weeks.
And I am impatient with my weight loss. It seems like I have been at this forever and that I am riding a never ending roller coaster. I have tried new things, worked my butt off, (not literally) and kept on going strong even when I felt like stopping. But folks.... I am kind of getting impatient with this too. I know it is good to go slow. Slow and steady wins the race right! But I want that feel good, look sexy, at my goal weight.... like right now. I don't want to have to keep on working at it. I am getting tired....frustrated. Can't I just wave a magic wand? I mean, I have been working at this for a long time and it is going extremely slow. Like slower than turtle slow.
How do I stop being impatient? How do I learn that good virtue on patience?
Don't worry..... I am NOT giving up. Just having one of those weeks.
