PATIENCE – for me

Create something special . . .

(Week 94)

Word for October: PATIENCE (last week)

How many times have we said “I’ll start Monday!” And how many times, come Monday afternoon, are we slumped over, disappointed. The same darn spot. Over and over again.

Or so it seems.

The truth is we never return to the same spot. Ever. It’s impossible. Life travels only forward, and it takes us along with it.

You are not the same person you were last week. This week’s events have been added to you. Your experience, your thinking, your results. The good and the bad. The rich and the poor. They have all moved you along life’s path.

It’s not straight. It looks like a corkscrew. Around and around, yes, but never repeating. With every step, in every moment, we gain altitude. With each pass, greater insight.

How we process our rotations determines our degree of change.
When we wallow in self pity and negative self talk, we have added weight to our backs. Hard to get very high. If we use our experiences to find new strategies, we rise. Dramatically.

There’s no question we’ll come back around. The question is the perspective.

Patience is not passive; on the contrary, it is active; it is concentrated strength. Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
