How to be More Patient

Is patience really a virtue? When we feel stuck in our lives, it is difficult for us to be patient. We are impatient with others, with ourselves and with time.

 

Sometimes we are faced with circumstances that are beyond our control. Other times the source of our feeling stuck comes from within.

 

Our negative habitual thinking has been firmly imprinted in our minds. We can become our own worse enemy when it comes to developing patience.

 

Here are some tips to become more patient~

· Be kind to yourself

· Ask for support

· Trust your intuition – it will always steer you in the right direction

· Release your resistance – go with the flow

· Don’t rush into making hasty decisions – think, and think again

· Change what can be changed

· Be in the present moment with things that you cannot change

· Get clear about your desires

· Take baby steps when necessary

And, as always, DON’T FORGET TO BREATHE!

    While reading your blog, right away the Serenity Prayer came to mind. Here it is for those who are not familiar with it.

    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.

    Living one day at a time;
    Enjoying one moment at a time;
    Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
    Taking, as He did, this sinful world
    as it is, not as I would have it;
    Trusting that He will make all things right
    if I surrender to His Will;
    That I may be reasonably happy in this life
    and supremely happy with Him
    Forever in the next.
    Amen.

    –Reinhold Niebuhr
