In the immortal words of Inigo Montoya, “I hate waiting.”
Patience doesn’t come easy to me. I’m a planner, and a do-er. Once I have decided where I want to go and set on my path, I sometimes struggle to stay grounded in today.
When I lack patience in my life, I am more likely to make hasty decisions, to sacrifice my long term goals for short term gain, and to replace gratitude with impatience.
Patience is right now.
My best life won’t happen when…, it’s happening right now. My best life is rooted in thoughtfulness and purpose, and laughter and joy in this day.
Embracing patience in life inspires happiness, gratitude, and achievement and success. Patience is quiet and calm, peaceful and present.
Patience is freedom.
When I am no longer willing to tether myself to the future, I am free to simply be.
I practice patience by being grateful for everything that is beautiful in my life today.
I practice patience when I embrace happiness inspired by my goals.
I practice patience when I am guided by my intentions.
I practice patience when I ask myself, “what can I learn in this moment?”
I practice patience when I am open and teachable.
Patience is joy.
Patience begins to come to me with greater ease when I practice acceptance. With patience I am able to live joyfully for today, knowing that tomorrow’s celebrations and struggles will be there tomorrow.
