Patience!

I have to confess that when patience was distributed I definitely must have missed the event. When I have an idea I want to start it right away and I stick with it until it is done to my satisfaction. This impatience is part of my success, of my journey, and of the way I walk through my life. It is actually part of my zest for life. I live life to the fullest and I walk through it with an open heart. I am like a sponge soaking up all the inspirations I can get in order to expand myself. But life taught me also that in certain situations I am able to completely surrender to patience. That’s when something is of particular importance to me.

That means patience? To me, it means waiting in faith for something we are not in control of.  That can be waiting for time to pass, for an impacting decision of others, or for a certain happening we long for. It may feel like a dependency since it is out of our hands. But it doesn’t make sense to become impatient, since it would only make the waiting time worse and would nurture destructive feelings.

Patience doesn’t need to have a touch of dependency.  Patience is a peaceful condition. It contains confidence, trust, and faith. We are consciously patient when we feel that it is for the benefit of people we value. Patience is a sign of love when we step back in order to grant others room for their decisions. Patience means taking a first step without knowing the whole path. Patience means enjoying the moment and not driving ourselves crazy with something lying in the future we cannot classify yet. Patience means being faithful to letting things unfold at their own velocity.  Patience means taking one step at a time without having the brain told what is supposed to show up after step three. Patience provides valuable time for preparing and for developing attitudes toward the desired outcome. When we are patiently moving on conditions will unfold in a way we could never create by ourselves with our controlling mind.

When we have decided to be patient then we have proved something very important to ourselves: We accept the possibility that things might not turn out as we hope they will. Because the matter we are patient for is worth the waiting and the uncertainty.

When there is a need for you to be patient the next time then keep in mind that patience is an act of respect towards others and an act of self-love. It says that you listen to your inner voice and that you trust the feeling which makes you go for it.

How long would you be willing to wait for something you feel is worth for? How long would you be willing to wait for something that feels like meant to be? As long as it needs, right?

Patience is the sign of a deep belief in something that simply feels right for you.

In Love and Light!

Wonderful post!

I don’t agree that you use the word believe in some part (since this word could not really reflect the meaning of this post).

However,

trust and faith are really important to live our lives
and the one who can trust is the one who is so courageous.
We cannot know what happen to us when we trust to people and things
but it is worthwhile to be patient to get the right feeling to us.

Thank you a lot for sharing this. 😉

What does it mean to be patient?
Is patience all about staying still and waiting for the best to happen?
Is patience all about bearing the bad emotions you experience and doing nothing else?

Most people get patience wrong, they believe that patience and waiting are the same thing while that’s not true.

Of course waiting is a part of patience but still its only one element among the other elements that together constitute patience.

Have a fresh week!!
