As I get older I hold patience with more and more respect. Patience is a virtue connected to many feelings, such as hope and forgiveness, and a lack of it is evident in frustration and despair. It is the antithesis of reactivity and self-sabotage.
Patience is something anyone can practice anytime, because patience saves time and energy. It enhances one's relationship with oneself and with others. It is a sign of self-respect. Practice patience in the smallest things you do today, and you will have a better outcome all week long.
