Monday’s Self-Care Messages-Be willing to give up good for great!

Patience….

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.

Where could you use a little more patience in your life?

Dictionary.com gave this definition for patience, “The quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like.
