and everybody needs a little gratuitous Guns N’ F’n Roses, I says :D
But I’m realizing that I have none.
Not G N’ R, but patience.
Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Niente. Rien.
You get the picture.
But this comes into play in just about every facet of my life, from eating to dating to work to family to weight loss.
I noticed one night while we were out eating that I had definitely ordered more than I needed. It was one of those eyes bigger than your stomach moments. But I think, in times like those, it’s more like a eat it while you can because you’re never going to see it again type deal. Why is it that I can’t accept that that these things will be around forever and I can come back again in a week, a month, a year and enjoy them again? Why do I think I have to have an extra side right then and there in order to feel satisfied? Why isn’t patience available on the menu or $2.95 instead of more chap chae?
But thankfully I haven’t been completely out of control. POINTS have been tracked. Everything tallies up. Everything still looks positive and the digital devil isn’t being a complete douchebag. Yet.
But this is where the patience thing comes back into play.
I want it all. NOW.
But do I even have a right to jump on it every day and expect to see a lower number? Hells no. Considering my activity has been limited to walking to and from work and ducking AGO security, I don’t deserve any pats on the pack nor should I be doing any happy dances next to the scale every morning.
Good things come to those who wait.
So I’ll just have to wait.
Or maybe find a time machine or something.
Craigslist might have one, right?
