Are you one of those people who gets impatient fairly easily? I definitely am, and I’m working on not getting so impatient all of the time. It is hard. I am running late for school a lot of the time because of my brother. I sit out in the van waiting for him to come out of the door. It takes every ounce of patience I possess to stop me from honking that horn like there’s no tomorrow. It’s hard to not get impatient when it’s someone else’s fault that you are behind, or something like that.
I think that we all have moments in life when we have to clench our hands tightly in our laps in order to keep from blowing up at someone. Some days I just wake up and I am annoyed with everybody even if they haven’t done anything wrong. It’s okay to have a bad day, but it’s not okay to take it out on other people.
Are you familiar with the phrase “patience is a virtue?” I think that we have all heard this at some point in our lives. It is true that patience is a great character trait to have. People like you because they know that you won’t blow up on them randomly.
You also aren’t rude because of your patience. For example, if a friend is trying to tell you a story, and you find it crazy boring, you don’t just interrupt them. You patiently listen to them because you care.
Being patient allows you to have remarkable self-control. Having patience allows you to become a better person and it makes you a better friend. If you are like this, you are going to be beautiful inside and out.
I know that I’m getting repetitive with the whole ‘being beautiful on the inside makes you beautiful on the outside’ thing, but it is so true. I can’t stress how important this is. You could be the most beautiful girl at school with the meanest personality. Boys may flock around you, but once they discover your true character, that attraction might vanish.
Choose to be beautiful by developing your character. Become the woman that you were meant to be. If you’re not sure whether you are beautiful, work on your character. You will become more confident and more likeable.
Patience is worth it.

Did you know that one aspect of our health that we have complete control over is attitude? We can choose how we face certain situations and circumstances. We can choose to be optimistic or pessimistic. We have the power to say no to being angry and miserable. You simply have to make good decisions.
Nobody likes to be around someone who is an absolute grump. They aren’t any fun! They sit around complaining because they have some problems in their life. “Why can’t I be prettier? Why can’t I have a better at home life? Why do I have to do this? This is so stupid?” Uh!!! It gets frustrating to hear people complain.
If you change your negative attitude and start becoming positive about everything, you’re going to become a much happier person. You are going to find joy in the little things, and you’re going to be thankful for the blessings that you already have.
What’s the best part about having a great attitude all throughout life? Other people notice! If you’re fun to be around and if you’re not negative, you’re going to become a more attractive person.
Author Karen Casey writes in her book Be Who You Want to Be, “Having a good attitude is easy – all I have to do is think of myself as sunshine, not rain.”
Don’t you just love that! We all have bad days, but when we start getting a bad attitude, we can choose to see the light in a situation instead of the gloom.
Be positive, not negative. It shapes you as a person, which makes you more attractive on the outside!
