One Little Word: 2016 Edition

I’ve noticed in my writing about 2015 that acceptance has a twin, something that is perhaps as important if not more important. That’s what I’ll be working on this year.

My word for 2016:

PATIENCE

I’m excited to work on my patience this year. Some specific targets for myself:

  • I desire to become more patient with my students as they challenge me as a teacher
  • I desire to become more patient with my son as he grows as an infant
  • I desire to become more patient with my wife as we grow in our second year of marriage
  • I desire to become more patient with myself as I take longer than I’d like to improve in various areas
  • I desire to become more patient with the world as it is not always going to be what I’d like it to be.

What’s your word?
