04 Sep PATIENCE
“Trust the process. Embrace the uncertainty, enjoy the beauty of becoming. When nothing is certain, anything is possible.”
This month our team all sat down together and had a discussion about what patience means to us. Below is a compilation of our thoughts…
Patience is a virtue. We’ve all heard this saying a thousand times, but have you ever stopped to really consider its meaning?
Today’s society centres on instant gratification. The world seems to be moving so fast, we want everything here and now and with digital technology it is becoming increasingly possible. But this also means that we can become so easily disappointed when we don’t instantly receive the outcome we are hoping for.
Our mind can have an unreasonable timeframe for success. Often when there is something we want so badly we ruin it before it begins by overthinking, fantasising, imagining, expecting, worrying and doubting.
You may have a path set out in your mind of where you want to go and what you want to achieve along the way, but when you encounter roadblocks, obstacles and challenges they make you want to throw the towel in and give up.
But if you persevere, push your way through the storm and endure the tough times, along comes the universe with an opportunity that you are now ready for. And you will be stronger for it.
Yes it might be uncomfortable, that burning desire inside you just wanting to take over and reach the finish line, but just be patient beautiful, just let it naturally evolve. Life is coming with what you need, when you need it.
Patience is not waiting. Waiting implies a passivity that patience is not. Patience is the acceptance that anything worth having takes time. Patience is working hard to get to the results. It is the step by step process of putting one foot in front of the other everyday, having faith that what you deserve will come to you when you’re physically, mentally and emotionally ready for it.
Rather than rushing through life; embrace the adventure, have patience and trust the process. For it is the harder decisions that will reward you with an easy life. Give yourself permission to slow down and allow things to unfold on their own.
When you water a plant and don’t see anything happening, do you sit and dwell over the plant not growing and stop watering it? No, you keep watering it and begin working out what else it may need. Eventually it will blossom and your patient, consistent dedication will have paid off.
The old adage “nothing worth having comes easy” applies to all aspects of life, from your job, to good food, fitness, friendships and love. Anything worth having takes time and effort, so don’t get discouraged when you’re facing an uphill battle. Be patient and work hard.
