~ Two things define you: Your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything ~

That is the real question of life, isn’t it? “Who are you?” How are you defined and how do you define yourself? It’s hard to know in the quiet times. It is only when things get rough that we really find out who we are and of what we are made.
This quote singles out two specific situations for consideration. The first is how patient you can be when you have nothing. When you have nothing, you will, obviously, have quite a few needs. How patiently can you wait for that which you need? Can you, or do you get agitated and make a fuss?
The second situation in the quote is what your attitude is when you have everything. When you have everything, you need nothing, and by extension, no one. This is a test of how you treat people when you don’t have any need to be kind or helpful. Will you be nice, or will you be an obnoxious (something)?
The problem is your attitude about the problem.
Think about this today as you go about your daily business.
