Alright loves, let’s talk about it because The Good Lord knows it is something I do not have and barely aspire to gain, but its so beyond necessary. The “p” word. Patience.
Much has changed in my life since last Ramadan. I started my own business, got a part-time job that became full timer after 3 months, quit my old job and got one back in my field, kinda. Either way, I’ve had to learn so much of a Skill/trait that unlike my mother, I was not blessed with the luxury of that being something I’m known for. If anything, I ‘m known for quite the opposite -I’m unfortunately one of the most impatient people you’d ever KNOW. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve worked on it and gotten significantly better but still have SO much further to go.
But lets talk about it. The Oxford dictionary defines patience as “the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.” How many of you can say that that is you? All The time? Everyday? Exactly-the lies you tell. Now, I didn’t come here to judge you or expose myself like that. what I came to tell you was to try to have some patience with yourself. I know that is easier said than done, but I promise it’s the best thing for you. similar to showing yourself some grace, but allowing yourself to feel what you need to feel and go through whatever you need to go through at whatever pace you may need to. Even GOD took his time with creation and He even took a day off. Treat yourself with a little bit of patience and allow yourself to grow.
Patience doesn’t come natuarily to most but it’s great to show to yourself.
Keep living, loving, and laughing.
