Patience

?”It is very strange that the years teach us patience – that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting.”

– Elizabeth Taylor, “A Wreath of Roses”
(July 1912 – November 1975)

Patience is my toughest challenge, it always has been! I want what I want, now!

One time I got in the morning and decided I wanted to change my front porch. By noon it was framed and that evening I had the porch finished. It was completely painted the next day by noon.

I get a great sense of accomplishment when I complete projects. I love to tackle new things so I can have new learning experiences. I know that patience is a virtue but I want to to get there as quickly as possible.

I’m not sure if I were patient it would make any difference. I don’t believe if I had to wait to create a painting or a necklace and earring set or to finish a book in a month rather than a week it would make any difference to myself or anyone else.

According to scripture “Good things come to those who wait.”

But I prefer to be in charge and make it happen on my schedule. I believe I can experience more in life by challenging life rather than being patient for life to unfold on it’s own accord.
