I am the one that has little to no patience and have had to learn how to become patient thanks to my children. Parents you know what I’m talking about. As a mom life can get put on hold to raise the children and so what I’m trying to do is learn how to balance my personal life and my mommy life into one and make it work as smooth as I possibly can… How am I doing so far you ask?… well it’s really only been like a week but so far so good… LOL!
To be patient with the process is to be consistent as well as persistent. We can’t give up on whatever it is that we are waiting for just because it’s not coming fast enough. We have to be patient with the process and we have to be patient with ourselves. Perhaps it’s not the right time as much as we all want it to be “the right time”.
Now I’ve been doing with a lot of patience practice lately and what I’ve realized is that I need to be a little bit more gentle with myself and the situations that I am in as well as to be gentle with the relationships that I choose to build on.
Not everybody runs at the same pace and so I can’t have expectations on someone else who might not be in the same place as I am…so what I’ve learned is that I’m a little anal retentive…. lol! and rather than putting my expectations on another person, it’s better that I give the situation time and space as well as that other person time and space. When I begin to do that, I begin to practice patience with myself.
What I’ve also realized is that I can’t feel guilty if I choose not to be patient with the situation. I have my own path that I must follow. And as I continue on my path I will begin to make ground and I will begin to pick up the pace and I won’t stop until I get to the end whatever that may be.
Sometimes we tend to stop our own path to help out another and that is OK but we can’t continue to wait for that person to catch up to where we are because that can take a long time. That can also distract us from staying on course with our own path, passion and purpose.
When people get off course they think maybe it’s because it was meant to be, maybe I’m not supposed to do those things, maybe I am just meant to be a stay at home mom… a nurturer…. Darlings!… I’m here to say that you can add anything you want to your. When we get off course it’s just the Universes way of saying re-balance yourself!… and how bad do you want it…. How bad do you want to succeed and how much do you love yourself to put yourself first so that you can succeed. Pay attention when you get off course and have patience with yourself and be gentle enough with yourself that you can gradually move yourself back onto that path, purpose and passion!
