Something I've worked on in my life is patience. I was not a patient guy! I was a nice guy I think - as long as things moved along at the pace I wanted them to move along... Hahaha. 😀. When you think about it, patience - true patience - is a difficult skill to truly master for many of us. It took me a while to realize that patience isn't about the time spent waiting - it's about my demeanor while I wait. Was I a miserable person to be around while I was waiting? Was I a caustic person while I was waiting? Well the answer was yes, yes I was... and that's really not what patience is about I've learned.
Patience is about gracefully waiting and inspiring others in positive ways while you do. With intentional work over the past many years I am happy to say I think I'm getting much better at truly being patient - and it's made a huge difference in my life and the lives of those around me 😊.
