What We Talked About
We live in an amazing time that allows us almost immediate access to information, entertainment and many other things almost immediately. We can sometimes be frustrated by waiting in such a high speed world, which also makes the idea of having patience that much more difficult while at the same time that much more important. Patience is more than just the idea of waiting. It might better be described as being okay with waiting.
Some of our favorite movie and story plot lines involve the main characters persevering through difficulties as they learn and grow and we love cheering them on as they experience a breakthrough. As we BECOME more patient people, we too will begin to notice the rippling effect that patience has in our relationships, our attitudes and our behaviors. Patience allows us to “bloom where we are planted” and to make the most of every moment.
