OK , not a particularly interesting post today. The theme seems to be patience. Patience at work, at home, never ending patience.
I am trying to not lose my cool, and the medium for not losing my cool is trying to imagine what a Buddha or a Zen master would do in that given situation.
It seems to help a little, at least enough to keep me thinking critically and not emotionally.
It is funny how we fall into the trap of treating the ones that we hold closest the worst and complete strangers better.
I realize that a large part of that is we expect forgiveness from family , and some how that excuses the behavior.
At least today I can look myself in the eye and say ''I kept my patience''
