Make a Plan for Virtue
It is easier to work on virtues with a clear plan. You leave a good Confession saying, “I will never be impatient again.” Then tomorrow comes and you try to race your family out the door! Your words are not kind but rather demanding. Today, start your day with linking a virtue to a particular action... "I will be patient as we rush out the door" and focus intensely on this. Then, move to the next action and virtue, "I will not be quick-tempered as my kids refuse to eat the meal I made for them.” Make a plan and conquer the day with virtue in action!
