Tranquility would probably be my strongest virtue. I believe it’s important to recognize things or accidents that are unavoidable, and not get angry or frustrated with them. For example, I won’t get angry at my employees when they call in and say that they’re stuck behind a train in Superior and will be a few minutes late. I witness a lot of people who are angry at this sort of unavoidable happening. My weakness would be frugality. I am the biggest waster of food in the world. It doesn’t bother me at all to throw away a whole sandwich or the rest of a dish. I don’t like leftovers and a lot of people get enraged when I throw away lots of food. I believe they are justified though, and I am trying to get better at saving things.     I can see value in keeping a log on my virtues, however, it is time consuming and I don’t really see any real reason to do this.

    I agree! People need to whine and complain about those little things less and not get so worked up!

    Yea I think alot of people tend to get caught up in there own little world and forget the things that mater and the things that don’t. It’s a good skill to be able to tell the difftrence.

    In this stressful world it is hard to stay tranquil. That is a good virtue to have.

    That is true that people get worked up on stupid little things. Life is to short to be angry at every little accident. Somebody at my work is like that. It drives me insane.

    My mother used to make us all be members of the “Clean Plate Club.” I can’t leave uneaten food on my plate, but I don’t know that I need to eat all of that, either. Most of it is junk, anyway.

    I’m pretty bad when it comes to wasting things too.. and more than wasting just food! But I think an upside to clearing things out and throwing things away is that it helps a person stay organized and keep a resonable amount.

    I wish more people were as forgiving as you; especially employers. Things happen!! That’s just the way life is!!!

    Maybe you could teach a class on tranquility!!!

    I am the same way on tranquility but the opposite on the wasting part. Pretty much if it touches my plate…it’s gone haha.
