If there’s one thing that has proven itself to be right-on every time I choose this path, it’s, there is always time for more patience.

Lord knows, I can get a bit anxious at times. Whether I’m at work or at home, often my discipline to remain calm has already gone out the window. Something that happens quite often, but am certainly not proud of.

Whenever I choose patience in those situations, I’m never disappointed. I’ve always admired people who don’t get worked up when the moment has turned into chaos or things are not progressing nearly as fast as we’d hope.

It’s just a matter of allowing a bit more space – a moment to breathe – between stimulus and response.

Besides, we look a whole lot less like a yahoo and much more graceful. One might even say, patient when we do.
