Patience, Impatiens

“The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.” – Arnold H Glasow

How patient or impatient are we?

Every day, I notice our tolerance being challenged. And unfortunately, impatience has become a discouraging and growing trend.

Let’s take a look at ourselves.  Where did our impatience originate? What was the cause?  Was it the impact of negative experiences that started early on in our lives? Perhaps, we had doubts about the unknowns, whether tangible or intangible, where we were offered no explanation? Or could it be uncertainties about ourselves and our future?

Is impatience a sign everything has to be done, at the moment? Is this normal behavior?

Being patient leads to calmness clearing the way to forward thinking.  Makes sense to me, what are your thoughts? If there’s the impression you take too long to make decisions, maybe it’s because you are certain there will be more positive results by completing tasks in a more appropriate and well-timed manner.

I prefer the aura of certainty because it sure beats the feeling of uncertainty. My two cents.

    A nice black coffee for me please!
    I couldn’t agree more, patience is the key. You see it everywhere around you, people just want it now and immediately. Each seems to be striving for their own goals!

    It does seem everything must be finished in the moment. No time to think about it or plan or savor the contemplation of what is to be done. I think we reap the fruit of our impatience in ways that will take years to make right again. Sadly the impatience of this generation is impacting the future of the next. Maybe they will take the time to learn from our mistakes. Thoughtful post. Thank you for linking to In Other Words.

    Everything is so instant anymore – fast food, internet – It’s like we’ve forgotten that old saying – Good things come to those who wait.
