It is very strange that the years teach us patience — that the shorter our time the greater or capacity for waiting.
December 14th - have patience, the best is yet to come.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish
John Quincy Adams
Right now we are all waiting for Christmas. And I see more than ever that time has made me more patient that when I was young. I used to do so many things to get ready that I was in such a rush that I missed out on considering the real importance of the day.
I see my grandchildren all very excited and not patient at all for Christmas to come. So compared to them I’m very patient these days.
I no longer get in a turmoil over all that needs to be done in order to celebrate the day. This year its doubly true. There’s not much at all to get excited about.
My family, like many others won’t be getting together. The virus has everyone staying at home away from others these days.
Patience is a virtue and can really improve our lives. It helps us to focus on our long term goals and develop a skill and a reputation for persistence.
Patience is a way to practice kindness. It helps us to calm down in the heat of the moment
But it does not mean we just sit around and wait for good things to come to us. Good things take effort, persistence and a great deal of work.
Patience involves the ability to hold back for some future gain. Excercisig patience can be compared to dieting or growing a garden. Waiting is involved, but one has to have plan in place and work at that plan.
Just like aging a case of wine for several years need not mean withholding from wine all that time. Life may be to short to wait, but it is not to short for patience.
Patience is the best remedy for every trouble.
