When you are annoyed with the world, it is hard to be patient. You see only the frustrating things - the light that turns red just as you approach it; the delay that causes you to miss a flight; the child that takes forever to get dressed in the morning.
You feel as if no matter what you do, you are walking through syrup - everything is slow and sticky. It seems as if the world has decided to step in front of you everytime you start to move forward.
When you reach the point where you want to scream, do it. Go somewhere alone - the car is ideal - and let it out. Rail at the heavens. Feel the frustration deep inside and release it so that it doesn't fester within.
Then, take a breath. And another. And another. Slowly. Take in the air; let out the impatience.
See benevolence in all things. Appreciate the slower pace of the world around you. Be grateful that you have time, instead of bemoaning that you don't.
Resist the temptation to gloss over the frustration, and process through it instead. You'll feel lighter and more relaxed when you stop feeling the need to appear to be perfect.
