Heartwings Love Notes 864 - Patience Training

Heartwings says, "Life provides many lessons that you don't study in school."

How do you learn to be patient? It helps to have had little children to care for. yet not everyone gets to do that. Many of us however have to deal with cell phones and computers on a regular basis. They can present much need for patience. As a writer, I deal with that a lot. Unfortunately, I do not have much knowledge of computers except what I have needed to learn in order to write and publish on the internet as well as submit to the Grafton News where my weekly column Good Earthkeeping appears.

In this age of negative news I hope to be able to offer positive, uplifting words that might help make readers feel better about life and themselves. That said, where does the patience training come in? It has to do with working with our most common mechanical servants. It involves the use of computers and their mysteries, together with cell phones: dropped calls, missed words and bad or strange connections, lack of cell towers, the need for "roaming," etc. I could go on, still computers are worse.

Sometimes when I start my computer it announces that it needs a pass word. I never have put a password on my computer to start it up, so how can I find it or post it? Frustration! I do keep a list of my many passwords to various and sundry sites and such, and even print it out so that in the event I have forgotten one I don't have to go look for it on the computer while trying to use the computer to access the site I hope to reach. Having something in print is helpful, and keeping records in other places than on the device you
are using can be equally so.

Then there is the problem of the occasional mysterious disappearance of a body of work because I can't remember what I titled it. Sometimes it even disappears because I hit a key I hadn't realized that I had. If I am writing a column or a poem, thankfully I can retrieve my effort with the backward arrow. However if I am emailing, I have to begin again. Ah, patience training, here it comes again! I am sure my readers have similar issues to deal with, and know what I mean. The bright side, however, is the opportunity to practice my ability to be patient, and that can indeed be valuable for my life in general.

May you discover how patient you can be as you employ your mechanical servants.
