that's what my favorite mexican restaurant in san diego has painted in large print on the wall
so i've decided to apply it to other aspects of my life
5:12 PM Wow was too big a word for that moment, maybe.
Nevertheless, I am impressed.
Though how do you balance patience with taking control?
David: here's how i see it
5:13 PM David: i walk up to the register
and i spell out my order
tell them what i want
that's taking control
then i wait as they prepare it
knowing that it will be delicious
I know. Seriously. A metaphor that is genius, elegant, and tasty.
Muchas muchas gracias, David Shoe.
*Or in scriptural words:
James 1:4: But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
versus something like
D&C 58:29: But he that doeth not anything until he is commanded, and receiveth a commandment with doubtful heart, and keepeth it with slothfulness, the same is damned.
