The Year Of Patience…

Last year was the year of change, but this year I’ve dubbed the year of patience. I’m learning to be patient with myself & those around me… and it’s definitely not been the easiest experience.
In the past eight months, I’ve learned to be patient with myself & my thoughts on what I’m going to do with my life. In the past three months, I’ve learned to be patient with my closest love ones as they make transitions in their lives. And, this month, I’ve learned to be patient with the commute to Spokane, WA every morning for training at my new job.
Above all, I’ve begun to understand just how important patience is & how much of a toll it can take on your life if you’re not careful. It can affect relationships, your health, your career, & so much more. We don’t always need to be hasty; sometimes we just need to lay back & relax.
I suppose the moral to all this is that when we’re very impatient, maybe we should think to ourselves, What am I in a hurry for? Is it worth all of this stress? And, if, on the off chance, it is worth all of the stress, perhaps we should ask ourselves if the stress is getting us anywhere.
