It is said that Patience is a very desirable virtue and those who have it are the wisest of all. I too desire this virtue in me and hence I decided to pen down my thoughts on it.
Lately, my posts have been very philosophical I believe, more to do with life’s practicalities than just plain fashion or lifestyle.
I have started to enjoy this phase in my life where I’m thinking like this, I think it’s giving me a chance to connect more with my readers and followers. Helping me to create an emotional bond with all of you, as our experiences may be situational , but the journeys would be the same eventually.
Each of us goes through the same in some way or the other, just disguised in different worlds.
Being honest, I have been a very impatient person. Often, I’v been given this feedback to stay calm and relax and wait for the right moment, but I never really understood it until now.
I wouldn’t say that now I am a patient person, but I’m definitely on the path to becoming one. Sometimes, you learn well and apply that. Sometimes, you experience some hardships and then learn to apply.
Most of us fall in the second category including me.
Being patient is nice, but being gracefully patient is what I’m talking about. By that I mean is that we all have this virtue of being patient already. What sets us apart is that how long are we patient for.
Haven’t we all been guilty of shortchanging ourselves? Settling for something that we didn’t initially want to, but eventually did. Is it because we were tired of waiting?
This way we are just creating a life of mediocrity for ourselves, nothing else. On the other hand, if we decide to wait it out a little longer, we might just end up where we want to and reach our destination.
It will also make us stronger as individuals. But it’s a very painful thing to practice. That’s why not everyone can do it in this fast paced generation.
Our journey of being patient can be eased out once we observe our situations and analyse how long it’s gonna be till we achieve what we want to.
Mindlessly waiting for something, without a plan is going to lead us nowhere. Rather it will just create more frustration and confusion.
I suggest to wait it out today to receive the bumper prize tomorrow rather than ending up with consolation prize today, simply put.
Let’s be patient gracefully…think about it..
