Testing my patience

Well, I did it. I don’t know why I did it, but I did.

What did I do?

I volunteered to be the treasurer for a non-profit women’s group.

We had our planning meeting yesterday.

I’m so grateful I kept my temper.

I’m so grateful there are only 8 meetings until my term is up.

It could have been that no one listened, but everyone wanted to talk.

It could have been we could have finished in 2 hours if one of the founding members would have stopped telling us stories or her opinion.

It could have been that the current board preferred to complain than actually consider a fix their issues.

What insists on remaining will never change.

It’s going to be a long year.

  1. It sounds like a learning experience. If nothing else you’ll know one thing you want to say no to in the future. I hope it gets better, but it sounds like the group is pretty entrenched in their ways.
