The theme for 2012-2013 at work and in life. I love that this was a synonym for “endurance” in one of my studies recently. I want to show myself to be a person of great mental and physical endurance by giving passionate patience for the people I encounter. At work, this means answering the same questions as many times as I need to and with joy in serving others. In life, it means extending grace in situations where my fuse is typically short. Hopefully every once in a while I can extend this patience to myself too.
