Be Patient

- POSTED ON: Jun 07, 2012


Many years ago, as a child, I was continually told: "Be Patient!".
I pretty much took the meaning of that to be: "Shut-up and wait".
 

The dictionary says to be patient means:

1: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint
2: manifesting forbearance under provocation or strain
3: not hasty or impetuous
4: steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity

It has never been easy to be patient, but it's probably harder now than at any time in history.
In today's world messages and information can be sent across the world instantly.
Everything is available with only a few clicks of a mouse.

But patience is a behavior, and most behaviors are learned through practice.
Developing patience requires a change in one's attitude about life,
and a positive focus becomes imperative when dealing with matters requiring self-control
.
