Giving Up Desires

Often, I feel pretty calm and peaceful – but then I find myself blowing up over some silly thing like getting stuck in traffic.  I’ve been pondering my lack of patience lately.

Impatience means some part of us thinks we’re entitled to certain things. In my case, I often feel entitled to:
* respect
* consideration
* assistance
* food and sleep/rest

When I don’t get those things, I lose my cool. I need to give up my expectations. I need to let go of my plans and desires for each moment to be other than it is.

How about you?
