I prayed for patience my whole life. Telling myself the story: I have no patience. I want what i want, when i want it. I've just come to the realization that you can only approach the future with patience OR anxiety (or in other words: with acceptance OR the intense fear that you can't control the future). I clearly chose the fear. But if I practice acceptance, in all facets of my life, then i will have achieved my goal to learn patience, and achieved the goal to gain patience at the same time.
I choose to STOP telling myself that I have no patience, and just accept what happens as a gift, and release my hope to control the future.
And my favorite recent found quote: The best way to predict the future, is to create it.
Sounds pretty simple right?
