Relax!

   I am learning how to relax when things aren’t going well!
   I was in the check out line at the grocery store, and the clerk seemed impatient and upset with large loads of groceries.  He preferred small loads.  I thought, “He’s going to be here for his 8 hour shift–what does it really matter whether one basket is full or not full?”
    I used to act like I was “on salary”: hurrying to get to the next thing and frustrated if I was in a place I did not want to be for too long.
    But now I have shifted to acting as though I am “hourly”: I’m going to work till I drop at the end of the day, so what does it matter if something is taking too long?
    It is actually a lovely change!  I love it!
