“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”Benjamin Franklin
My formatting for today will be a little different, as I really tried to focus on one virtue I felt I have been lacking in, which is patience.
With this being said, I would rate my contentment for today a 2/5, my silence a 5/5, my moderation a 4/5, and my tranquility a 2/5. My contentment and tranquility are a little lower as I did not journal, but I tried to think of them throughout the day. However, I did feel as though I mostly achieved my goals for moderation and silence.
As for patience, I would rate today a 4/5. I visited my dad’s work today to continue a project, and although not everything went as I had planned, I felt as though I was more patient with others than I usually am when I get irritated. With my virtues in mind, I really tried to be mindful of the things I said, and how they would make others feel. Instead of rushing into a solution, I talked with others first to come up with the best course of action. I ended up getting a good result, and it is starting to make me realize just how valuable patience can be.
I hope everyone has a good night!

I’m impressed by your ability to identify a problem with one of your virtues and so quickly solve it. I might need to take your approach of taking a day to focus mainly on one of the virtues that I’m not satisfied with my efforts towards. Patience really is great! It makes things less stressful, and on top of that, it usually makes them better too!
It’s great that you focused on just one virtue today — sometimes that’s easier and better than spreading yourself too thin on too many things. Mindfulness is a really great thing to practice and definitely something I’d like to work on myself, so it’s cool to see how it went for you. Good luck on improving on your patience!
