Isn't it just so cliche that whenever one resolves to be more patient or optimistic or [blank], they inevitably face unanticipated trials almost immediately?! Nothing earth shattering or significant to report, but I'll say this: after a series of patience-sapping incidents leading to the return of a twitch in my right eye and a pulsating headache, I finally had to laugh. Of course these episodes are coming at me in rapid succession today! After all, it was just last night that I'd publicly declared my intention of being more positive and resourceful.
And so the real test begins.
