“He that would live in peace & at ease, Must not speak all he knows or judge all he sees.”Poor Richard’s Almanack, 1736
(I think of that quote for patience. Hopefully, it can help you too).
Tranquility: 3: I feel like my tranquility improved from yesterday. I continued my journal and I was able to find more things that I am willing to make peace with.
Silence: 5: Today, I took time to just hang out and relax for a moment. I sat in my room quietly for around 15 minutes. I was really stressed about my schedule for tomorrow, and being able to sit and relax helped me to calm down a bit. I have found this virtue to be really helpful towards my mental health and overall productivity.
Moderation: 5: Today was a great day! I woke up, met friends for breakfast, attended the powderpuff game to cheer on other friends, cleaned my room, talked with my sister, did homework, and went and saw a movie with my parents. (I would say The Eternals was okay, but the surprise at the end is the best ;)). I felt like I was really productive, but I also enjoyed what I did.
Patience: 3: I feel like I am slowly becoming more patient with others. I noticed it a little throughout the day today when I was talking to a friend of my parents, and when I was really focusing on what others had to say at another event today.
Contentment: 4: I am very proud of the progress I am making with contentment. Progressively, each day I am adding more and more things to my journal. Feel free to read!
Have a good rest of your weekend!

I’m so happy your day turned out so well! Finding the time to simply exist and relax is great; meditation is one of the most recommended stress relievers for a reason! Furthermore, I really love the idea of gratitude and peace journalling, and being reminded of it once more makes me want to take it up; sometimes a reminder of what we love can serve to improve our mindset tenfold. I hope you have a good rest of your weekend!
Cate!! You are so organized. You seem to be doing really well and making great process!!
