Patience, patience, patie...

How would you define patience?

The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.

Hmmmm...there are two key words that jump out at me.


I'm thinking if you can create an enormous capacity of acceptance all the 'stuff' becomes trivial.  Too easy eh? It's the waiting...that's the challenge. Waiting tries every ounce of energy when you are anxious, tired, suffering or worried. It's the voice that keeps bringing up the doubts, that keeps chipping away at that capacity, that knows just what triggers you to give up or give in.  

IF ONLY we could see what is just ahead. Wouldn't that be ideal.  You know you have a few stumbling blocks, but not to worry, just down the road is what you've been working so hard to achieve. 

BUT NO, we only get to see the step we are taking and even then we aren't sure how we are going to land.

Our perception of time is limited... actually crippling.  We want what we want when we want it.  

It doesn't work that way.

So it all comes back to capacity and acceptance.

It all starts with you.

Live in the moment. 

Hold steadfast to your dreams.

Pay everything...especially the NON-things.

Be patient.


  1. I love this, Angela. It's so difficult to be be patient, at least for me. I think patience was not put into the chemical mix of my DNA. And yet, I also value its lessons. Thank you for reminding me of this.

  2. Thanks! I think most of us have difficulty with patience. Humans eh? Glad we can share and help each other on our journeys. God Bless. :)
