Chapter 9, Page 19, Book 20

Patience is the companion of wisdom.

St. Augustine

September 19th - It all takes time

Good things come to those that wait.

Old Proverb

Wisdom requires time for reflection and collaboration.  Patience is taking the time to reflect on your past experiences to engage in trusted colleagues  and to make decisions based on all the available information. When we contemplate the wise thing to do, then we must have the patience for the right moment to do it.

One thing this year has taught us all is to have a lot patience.  Weve waited for months to return to some sort of normal.  The thing is that the new normal isnt normal at all.  Our patience has been tested over and over again.

Not one of us likes to wait, weve become a society of intent gratification.  But weve had to learn a new way of thinking.  Nothing is instant and waiting has become the norm.  We have to wait for the good things in life to come.  Waiting gives us the precious time to get in touch with ourselves.  To come to grips with what make our hearts beat faster, for whats really important to us.  

Be patient, good things take time.


If we wait long enough, things will change, nothing stays the same for ever.  We can only hope there is a better future coming our way.

Yep, Joni Mitchell was right: "You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone." Hoping and praying Good Things are still in store. What else can we do?

I don't think life will ever go back to the old normal again. Just like after 9-11 airline travel changed. This has changed how people live and it will continue to change how people live. But I do think less restrictions will come eventually and people will start feeling comfortable going out and living again :)

At my baby shower 45 years ago - we played a scrambled word game. The one word no one got was PATIENCE and how much it is needed to raise kids! Right?

I am learning the truth to the statement of patience ad wisdom. But it has taken many years and I still get impatient and act like everything must be done NOW! I have to watch myownself.
Good advice to say the least.
