A Lesson in Patience
Patience is a continual teacher and we are her students. We learn patience for many things in our lives and then we are given another lesson to learn. When we think we have passed all the tests that patience has to give us there is yet another chapter added to the lesson book.
A recent experience has shown me that patience is similar to rainstorms in the Summer. One day we may be overflowing with it and the next it is no where to be found. I am grateful for the experiences that allow me to continue to learn and grow. Seeing in others the very things that we don’t like in ourselves is a powerful thing. Tolerance of others in these situations is life changing.
What have I learned in the past week? Oh so much!! I learned that I am so grateful for how my parents raised me. They gave me the space I have always needed to learn and grow, even when some of those lessons were difficult and would hurt me. I learned to value my alone time as it brings me balance and great joy. My alone time is invaluable because it allows me to sit with myself and grow or let go of what is necessary. I learned that sometimes you just have to open your mouth and speak your mind or else others will walk all over you. This is not always easy, but with practice it allows peace within the mind. The most important thing I have learned is to appreciate each quiet moment so that I have a place to go when surrounded by chaos. I am a bright light surrounded by light rather than darkness and these quiet moments allow me to keep the dark and negative out of my space.
Practice patience each day and you will find the calm place within when everything around you is not.
BE POSITIVE and Have a Beautiful Day!! ~Pamela
