This afternoon I was heading out for a walk, as I like to do as much as possible…… walking out in fresh air gets my creative brain working! As I enjoy this, what is suppose to be winter at 60 degrees (believe me I’m not complaining!), I began to think of my desire for immediate results. I put in the hard work, I get out of my comfort zone and take risks, I work towards my goals daily, I make a plan and am consistent, disciplined, and PERSISTENT, yet It hit me that I lack patience. This is the missing link in my daily life thoughts. I must practice PATIENCE with all of the above. I began to realize also that because I lacked the patience it takes to reach that goal, negative thoughts came trickling in. We all tend to get a little discouraged when we hit a road block or we may even feel a little beat up by our consistent hard work and no immediate results. But than I remembered that Nothing good ever happens overnight. There is no such thing as overnight success. I must keep on keeping on, till I get to where I want to be. Staying persistent is important but being patient is just as important. Patience is worth practicing!
“Have patience with all things, but first of all with yourself.” St Francis De Sales
“Patience is bitter but its fruit is sweet.” Aristotle
“Patience is not the ability to wait. Waiting is a fact of life. Patience is the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.” Joyce Meyers
