One of the biggest stressors is impatience,
Honey, there was a time when I could have written a book on that!
If I asked someone to do something,
And they didn't do it...
I would do it myself,
And huff and puff,
All the while,
Was like that for years,
But I learned to WAIT,
Because I was wearing myself out,
And it was showing on me,
And I could not have that...
When I started writing,
My patience, believe it or not was already there,
I DID NOT EXPECT MUCH...
So when things took longer than I thought they should,
I was okay,
BUT, I continued to work,
When a handful of people had something to say about my work,
That was less than flattering,
I listened, didn't get into a contest of debates with them,
BUT, I continued to work,
Because what I knew for sure,
Is that there was an audience for what I was doing,
And that many times that had to come through patience,
Because I had no interest in being the Chee Chee and Pepi of the writing world,
You guys might not remember Chee Chee or Pepi,
But that had a hit song in 1971 entitled, 'I know that I am in Love'...
Hadn't heard of them since,
I also knew that I had never meant to write a thing until I was retired,
And here I was a few years early,
Writing and actually having people read and purchase my work,
And now for whatever reason,
Without much preamble,
Mrs. Black? is doing her thang,
And I am so grateful,
Because I knew I had to wait,
But I never stopped working while I waited...
