Hoping in despair?
Did you make that up, or read it on the side of a cereal box?
What's to despair about?
You live life, enjoying it for what it is. I don't see any hope, or despair involved in that.
In truth, the less I hope, the more I enjoy my life.
Hoping is like wishing on birthday candles, or praying to God to fix something.
Patience (for me) is more like realizing things will change.....in it's own good time. In the meantime, you put on your big girl panties, employ workarounds, sometimes God forbid, actually enjoy what the reality is.
For instance, in the example used, I could have groaned and said "I can't believe it, I actually have to stand up, walk WAY over into that other room, and sit or lay back down. Doesn't everyone realize I have to get in as much muscle stretching as possible, every single second, then I have to go and be a pain in every other thing I'm going to do today?"
That sound pretty childish. Especially considering if everything went exactly as you planned, you could very well find yourself on schedule, but walking right underneath a grand piano that's falling from a 50 story window.
Some of the best things that's happened in my life occured because I had to wait...some of the worst when I forced things to my will.
What you say sounds more like a martyr.
Also, tolerance doesn't automatically mean the object of your tolerance is in any way negative.
I suppose I don't see the attribute of patience as applying to the small potatoes of life.
