Boomer’s Rants (My Impatience)

There I sit hands on the wheel waiting for the light.  Fidgeting and fussing cussing under my breath.  Finally the light changes, the car in front of me takes its sweet time because the driver is on the phone.  That is supposed to be illegal now, by the way.  They start moving, I finally get to go forward.  Where am I going you may ask.  Is it an important meeting, an appointment, am I late for work, or could it be an emergency?  NO, NO, NO, AND NO, I am not going anywhere particular, I am just impatient.

Right now I have a lot of things going on in my life.  A lot of different things I want to take care of.  Those things have to be put off until payday.  This drives me crazy.  I know there are millions of us who get over-anxious waiting for payday to come.  Living paycheck to paycheck.  So I get that I am not the only one.   I am, however, the only one I can talk about here.

Example #1:  Putting things in the microwave to thaw, or re-heat.  I am always questioning the possibilities of getting it done faster on the stove.  I know the microwave is faster than the stove, but that two to three minutes to re-heat leftovers kills me.

Example #2:  I like to workout on occasion.  My problem is when you get to be about 35-40, and I am 51, it is a lot harder to get rid of the extra belly fat and develop those six-pack abs you so want.  I will go at it for about a week straight.   When my abs don’t show the improvement I so desire, looking like those athletically inclined types.  I get frustrated because I want results now.  Don’t get me wrong there is improvement.  Smaller belly and weight loss, and I am happy with it.  I know if I keep working on it I will get there.  I just want it to happen faster.

It is not like I waste a lot of time, waiting for the light, my food to heat up, coffee to perk.  When you are as impatient as I am, minutes feel like hours, days like weeks, and months feel like years.

Example #3:  Writing this post.  It is taking longer than I planned to gather my words together.  So I let myself get distracted onto other things I have to do.  By the time I get back to it, I have to re-read it to get on track again.

Impatience I am sure there is no cure.  Although I believe that if I was in a place in my life where I wanted to be.  A happier place, than I am sure that I wouldn’t be as impatient as I am.  Certain things would definitely still get to me.  I feel for the most parts it would not be so bad.  I do think, though, once I hit my stride and I am exactly where I want to be, time will go too fast.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
