Patience by Nyla Buie
You have heard it time and time again, good things come to those who wait. But a certain question often comes to mind - how long? It is important that we learn to exercise patience in all aspects of life. We have to be open to accepting the blessings we are given and content with the fact that we will receive them in due time. Sometimes it is hard to understand why things do not always go our way or happen right when we want them to happen. That is when patience comes into play. Maybe at the moment you are not ready for the big promotion, or to be thrown into a relationship you think that you deserve. Good things take time, and there is a plan for you. Try not to rush life by, good things are happening, maybe just not in the order you would like them to. Patience can be applied in all aspects of life - especially self-love. Remember to be patient with others, but also to be patient with yourself. Work hard so at the end of the day you are a better person than you were the day before. Life is often thought of as a journey for a reason. Progress is often only realized after weeks of hard work and persistence. Remember to give yourself credit and practice patience within the feelings you feel toward yourself.
