Response sent via Standard Post

What do you think when you hear standard mail delivery? 

I think “2-3 business days, extra time around the holidays”. 

(I find myself comparing my desire for the item to arrive to the cost of overnight delivery, and often times I find the desire wins over the wait. I suppose that is a trait of our instantaneous generation, and a hard habit to break.)

With people, I find myself also responding quickly. Finding the need to be heard or right outweighing what the other person is saying. 

The challenge here is rather than expediting my delivery, I need to learn to become quick to listen, slow to respond. I need to send my responses through standard mail rather than overnighting them. The 2-3 days to mull on how I feel and why also gives me time to seek out and understand how THEY feel and why.

About ashleekarin

Every Sunday I tried to post updates since I succeed in camping the doorstep of the world during a 110 day road trip around the USA; The Roadside Bears blog was then brought head first into the internet world (changed to ashleekarin.wordpress.com). Included are the details of our adventures and how we are doing, as well as tips on how we made a road trip around the USA happen. It’s important to pursue your dreams to the end, even if you end up with nothing. After all, you only have one life to live; go big or go home. Join me vicariously through this blog – AshleeKarin.wordpress.com – and experience the adventure of my life. Viewer discretion is advised, as you will most likely witness a very hungry person freezing as they sleep in their car. I will always be planning the next great adventure – so don’t miss out, subscribe to the blog today! XoxO (big kiss little hug little kiss big hug ), Ashlee Karin
