It is June already! Half the way through 2016. How is the year coming around for you? Do you need to make any life changing decisions so that the next 6 months are going to be better?
The subject of this month’s Newsletter/Blog is: PATIENCE with all letters capital, big & fat! Patience, or the art of waiting, sipping tea, not going bonkers. How are you and Patience getting along nowadays?
Once upon a time…
The dictionary defines patience as “the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious”.
Anger and anxiety.
If you sow, you will reap. (Jim Rohn)Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting. (Joyce Meyer)
Unless, to stay in the metaphor, yes unless there is a natural catastrophe that destroys your crop.
The good news is: we are only talking metaphorically. The only real threat to your harvest is, well, I am sorry to say it, but it is YOU…
Can you receive just as equally well as you are giving?
Give and receive equally
You have signed a deal with the universe: you have clearly stated an intention, started a job, taken an action that at some point will lead to a result. Now receive it! Don’t close yourself to the results.
Remember: there is no such thing as failure, only feedback. If you don’t get a result, it is your result. You are supposed to learn from it.
Do you ever congratulate yourself on having been sufficiently patient? Why not? Celebrate even the small steps. Having been patient is a result. You can celebrate.
Being open to receiving and then commemorating this by expressing your gratitude can really enhance the way you engage with your life.
Studies traced impressive benefits to the simple act of writing down things for which you are grateful in your life, benefits like better sleep, fewer symptoms of illness, and more happiness.
Have you ever tried keeping a gratitude journal? Get upfront and personal with yourself. What are you grateful for today? How does it make you feel?
Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.
You are doing great! Keep up and you will be kept up.
Light & Love
