Good morning! Do you ever find yourself feeling like Veruca Salt? That whatever the thing/situation/experience that you really want hasn't arrived yet? Like you know that you have to wait, but you really don't want to? No--just me? ;-) I'm going to just assume that I am not the only one that struggles with patience at one time or another. I know for myself that when patience challenges me, whether it is in my relationships, career, body image, spirituality, finances, or something else, it usually boils down to one thing: not being present. Ouch. Does this ring true for anyone else? When I am focusing my energy on the future and the impatience of not being there yet and having what I want, I'm not able to truly be in the moment.
I recently read the quote above by Auguste Rodin, and it really hit me. Looking at patience as a form of action, rather than an annoying form of purgatory, has really helped me. Knowing that patience (also a form of trust) is guiding me and directing me in a gentle way, helps to keep me present. It causes me to recognize that everything is happening for a reason to lead me to a greater experience. Ahh...
I hope that this adds a bit of comfort to your day, and know that we are all in this together. I so appreciate each and every one of you!
Also, I have had several emails and comments lately about topics to write about. If there is anything in particular that you would like to read, let me know!
