The Lesson of Patience
It is a lesson I am now convinced we need to learn due to how difficult it is for us. We are working on it. I rush through things, chores or checks on my to-do list, and don't reach the result I want. Then, in time, I get there. These last couple weeks I am continuously reminded that sometimes things are in place and you have to send them out there in the world and be patient as the stars align. I came across the above quote somewhere in the social media world and thought it was perfect. I am used to saying "it's and exercise in patience" but then thinking whether or not I have patience doesn't affect what is happening, it affects how I feel. Ahh a good attitude while waiting...
The experience is refining us for our future. If we spend so much time waiting, I absolutely do not have the energy to spend that time upset, frustrated and beating my head against the wall. Somedays, I will fail. But I get a new day to try again, and I will take this opportunity to count my blessings and hone in my skills for patience.
