a little on patience


I found myself asking the universe give me patience a couple of days ago. Remembering which situation prompted me to ask for it is hard because there were a few times I needed more patience. It's difficult not to get angry or upset when from sunrise to sunset I am waiting for better news regarding the worldwide pandemic. It seems as nothing is changing in the world of change I am living in.

Because I am not enrolled in classes this term, I feel as if I am on summer vacation expect there are no parks to visit and no friends to see and the weather is, in my opinion, better. Patience and the word slow seem to fit together this Spring.

When I am being patient I often times feel as though I must hang in there. Hanging in there when I am on the verge of becoming irritable seems to take forever, hence the word slow fitting in with patience. I become stuck in the waiting period of waiting for whatever irritant is in my way to simply move. That or I learn to move past it so to acquire peace.

Asking for patience is humbling. By asking for it I realize that I am not being as patient as I could be towards a situation I find my heart softens and my mind becomes more accepting of what is going on around it. The situation doesn't feel as hopeless as it once did after patience is asked for. The next couple of days I will make more of an active effort to be patient towards myself and the others around me.

Reminders to self:
I need to be more gentle towards the children I am surrounded by
Meditation in the middle of the night to fall back to bed is helpful *adds this*
Clouds that hang low to the mountains after it has rained are beautiful *then adds another distraction*

Thought there were more things to add onto that list but in the process of explaining tea and thinking about things I can't pinpoint I've lost any other thoughts. OH! *goes back to list*

  1. The words "hanging in there" really are a fitting way to describe all of this because its what everyone says when something is so out of our control! I also like your ideas on asking for patience and love how you are finding meaning in this. ♡

    1. I thought so myself too. Asking for patience was something we did in mass a lot and it stuck with me.

  3. AAA It's so hard to be patient right now!! I've been home for nearly a whole month (day 29!) and there is no end in sight, which really is the hardest part. Knowing when this is going to be over would be such a bright spot, but unfortunately, that's not the case.

    But yeah, this post resonates with me a lot.

  4. Patience has always been one of the virtues I struggle most to attain. I pray so often for a renewing of patience and peace and the ability to just let things be at times...I relate to you very much when it comes to this struggle. I am so glad to hear that you have been able to put it so well into practice, though ♥ Well done. It's no easy feat.

    1. It's not easy and I am at ease to know you relate to what I am feeling when it comes to it too. We will keep trying to do better, always.

  5. Thanks for this post, girl! It has encouraged me during this time of waiting to realize how it makes us grow so much. It's made me stop and realize who I am and Who Jesus is. For those reasons, I have savored this time! Yes, it's hard, but God has a purpose, and He has used - and will use - this time in so many ways. Patience. <3

    Thanks for writing this; I enjoyed the read this morning! *hugs* You are so loved!
