PATIENCE

'behind the art'

The dictionary defines patience as the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble or suffering without getting angry or upset. This is one way to put it, but it also has a deeper meaning. The word patience means the willingness to stay in the present and live the situation out to the full in the belief that something special will manifest itself to us at the right time. It goes with the phrase, everything happens for a reason. Patience is the ability to remain calm and wait for something even if it takes a day, month, or even years.


As the african proverb goes: “To run is not necessarily to arrive.” Having the ability to remain patient, will help you achieve big or better things in life. Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet. No one said life is going to be easy because all things are difficult before they become easy, but it will be your level of patience that will determine your fate.
