Patience and I have always had a peculiar kind of a relationship. I guess you can say, I’ve never really mastered the whole waiting thing.
There have been many, many times had I been too angry, annoyed, complained, lost my temper, gotten irritated, and missed out on what could’ve been the best thing that ever happened to me; all because I didn’t want to wait for it to show up?
I have actually grown in many was, but it hasn’t always been easy, but I am grateful for the good and bad experiences alike! I am ever so blessed that in my quest to find patience, I found Reiki, which has assisted me with patience and understanding that good things DO come to those who take on a new outlook on patience!
Patience is synonymous with tolerance. I’m lucky to be on the path of learning to achieve it. I used to be and on occasion, can still be a very impatient person but I found out that good things come to those who can wait – it just makes you appreciate them even more. For me, right now I am working on having patience in my own personal healing. I continue to do daily Reiki, yoga and aromatherapy for my Sacred Self Care in an effort to combat Chronic Sinus Infections I’ve been having for almost a year now. I used to expect to feel 100% immediately, but have learned to listen to my body – when I’m tired, I rest. Patience has given me the courage to not become discouraged with my healing process when it dosn’t happen as quickly as I’d like.
