Are you recalling the last time you encountered the word virtue? I won’t blame you. Let us refresh each other’s registry. Virtues are the hallmarks of your character. It is the guiding moral principle of your everyday life activities. If that’s too deep, honesty, faith, punctuality; these are all virtues.
My alma mater has a culture called ‘Virtue of the Month‘. It is exactly what the phrase implies – a virtue is expected to radiate within the prevailing month. If the virtue of the month is order, a speaker will preach about what is order, what is not orderly and the rest of the usual. As students, we are expected to practice order and that especially applies to order in our lockers.
The Virtue of the Month has remnants on me being a principled person. I live by my virtues, but there is one that I hate. It’s patience.
I really hate to waste valuable time doing nothing while waiting in line. You know those times you are stalled, but you can do nothing but to wait. Oh screw that! I want things happening now, spontaneous and flowing.
Why can’t hurrying be the virtue? We need to be fast and alert. I don’t think waiting is a practice of endurance or patience. It’s absurdity.
What virtue you practice the least?
