Thank You For Your Patience

Do you ever have those moments where you wish you had a tag on your shirt like new employees that says "Trainee-of-Life, Thank you for your patience." Because I do. Yesterday was one of those moments. I shared a personal life story at church that wouldn't have been so bad, except I probably said something along the lines of "If you you wear pink sweatpants with writing on the butt, I judge you." While it wasn't my intention to offend, I'm sure I hurt someone's feelings. Score? Elyse's life progress: zero, Foot-in-my-mouth life moments: one billion. I just hope by now that everyone realizes I am an idiot. I am the first one to own up to the fact that I am completely and utterly flawed. Yes World, it's true that I am loud, obnoxious, opinionated, immature, insensitive, stubborn, silly and a whole slew of other things. But you know what? I'm working on it. At least I'm to the point where I can own up to most of my faults. Hopefully overcoming them is somewhere down that long road of life. So, what I really mean to say is bless you all for bearing with me. Someday I'll grow up, I promise.

Oh, Elyse, you didn't say that. Why? Ha ha ha. I know what you mean about hoping people realize you're working on it, though. Sometimes people tend to characterize you one way and think that you'll never be able to change, forgetting that life is about change!
