It Takes Time

Patience is a form of wisdom. It demonstrates that we understand and accept the fact that sometimes things must unfold in their own time. – Jon Kabat-Zinn

I am not a patient person.  I want what I want, and I usually want it right away.  But sometimes, it takes time for things to fall into place.  An acorn that is planted in the ground isn’t going to grow into a mighty oak, just because we try and will it.  There is a rhythm to things, and sometimes we just have to let that rhythm play out.

It’s logical, and on a certain level, it’s something that people understand, but understanding, and accepting are two different things.  In today’s society, we get immediate gratification.  Post a status on Facebook and get likes right away.  Want to talk to someone, shoot them a text, and chances are they’ll answer right away.  We get used to getting it all right now.  But sometimes it takes time, and when it does, it’s hard.

Cultivate a patient attitude.  Learn to wait.  Learn to sit back and enjoy the down time without a phone in your hand and or a computer giving you instant answers.  Develop patience and learn to wait for things to unfold in a natural manner.  Sometimes it takes time for things to come to fruition.  Have the wisdom and the knowledge to accept that.
