“Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favorite thing about yourself.”
If there’s a value that I must boast about is my patience.
Over the years I’ve cultured that patience has imparted me to “wait, things will get better”, though at times my heart has contradicting sentiments. Regardless, I’ve always obeyed to preserve my composure so I don’t instigate any wrong verdicts by “jumping the gun.”
Patience is established effectively for people who have engrossed rough rides in life, from what I’ve experienced. The wait, the suffer; the torture has evolved me to become a very collected person. I won’t inflate details on what’s transpired in my life but I’m blessed that I have the ability to wait. Not lengthy enough that I’m tallied as “lazy”, but long enough to envision that a grander reward is at the end of the tunnel.
Although idling may dispirit you irrespective if it’s a personal/professional matter, one must keep his/her heart and mind waiting in expectancy that something enormous is at the finish line. Even if it’s a short-term standstill like halting in a grocery store lineup, where patience should be sold, you must refrain from showing any agitation. Volley your mind in different thoughts, grab a magazine and digest those derisory minutes that distinct you and the finish line.
After all, “All good things come to those who wait.”
Do you have patience?
