Chapter 7, Page 9, Book 19

Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

July 9th - have patience

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.

John Quincy Adams

Patience is an essential part of our every day life and might be a key to a happy one too.  They say that only good things come to those that wait.  

We’ve become a society of instant gratification so it’s no wonder that patience is difficult for most of us.  But by becoming more patient, we can greatly reduce the stress in our lives and it’s an antidote to frustration.  

Patience is a skill that leads to relaxation and freedom. It gives you time to appreciate what you have in the moment.

Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.

Napoleon Hill

Again you hit the nail on the head. We are a very impatient society because of the "I have got to have it now' syndrome that has taken over. As we watch life go by it becomes 'maybe' a little easier to have patience. BUT it is still tough at times. A beautiful day here in the RV park in Pennsylvania. Looking forward to seeing what the local farmers have available.
Take care over there.
Sherry and jack from PA!

We definitely are an impatient society. I think that's why there are so many accidents with people running through red lights. They are impatient to get somewhere that they run the light, cause an accident, and then they end up stuck there sorting out the accident and often having to replace the car. If everyone just took those few extra minutes and wait the light out, safer roads for sure! And that is just one example of how impatient we as a society are. I know I get impatient waiting for something to load on the internet. I have to remind myself sometimes that I lived in the world when there wasn't any internet and did just fine :)

You can tell by the way everything is prepackaged we are in an impatient world - not a lot of people stop to talk anymore either. I miss those days.

How curious! Another of my blogger friend's post today talks about patience. An excerpt:

" ….. Such impulsive and impatient behavior is understandable, endearing even, in four and five-year-olds like Alexandra and Savannah. But if it persists as they grow older, it threatens to become a disagreeable and irritating trait that feeds the yawning mouth of instant gratification. No one needs to be subjected to the "I want it now!" syndrome!"

Ah, what lessons we can learn from the little ones!
