At 8:30 pm on Saturday, March 26, 2011, lights will be switched off all around the world for Earth Hour. This movement will save a ton of energy. According to BC Hydro's Team Power Smart, "If British Columbians implemented the same conservation measure (as they did in 2010) for just one hour every evening, the combined savings would be enough to power close to 2,200 homes for an entire year." WOW!!!

There's things I have been waiting for but nothing has come about. As time goes by, I noticed that my patience is lacking these days. Basically I feel that I don't have the patience I did a few years back. Mind you, when I was a teenager I had no patience for anything but I learned as I got older. But when I hit my mid thirties...it went out the door!
I find that I don't have patience with coworkers, family, friends and I guess even strangers. When I am at a store I don't have any patience with the clerks. I will walk out if no one acknowledges my presence ( I learned from working retail, you have to acknowledge every customer that walks in the door) and I will also walk out if it takes a long time to be served! When I want something done I want it done now! I can't wait. (Actually my husband is like that with renos around the house.) With me it's the everyday things. I don't have the patience for anything!!!
Anyhow... as part of my 101 in 1001 days, being more patient is one of the items I want to accomplish. I have to take it as it comes. I have to learn to relax more. I think if I am more easy going and laid back, patience will come. And when it does I think I will be prepared.
"NEVER RUN AFTER A BUS OR A MAN. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE ANOTHER ONE."
I totally agree with the above quote! Do you have any patience?
I'm just me...I am a princess, daughter, sister, wife, auntie, friend and office peon but always a crafter at heart. I am not a morning person and I have to have my morning coffee before I can start my day. I love reading and collecting magazines and books. I am a pack rat. Most of all I love to craft and to decorate.
