Antelope (Listen while you read)
Yes, indeed; it is ‘almost’ yours.
That’s right. Patience!
Do we need to say more?
Patience is indeed a virtue.
(I want it now, thank you very much. No; I do not want to wait. I want what I want and I want it now.
How many times have we said this to ourselves throughout our lives? I was one of those impatient souls. I found waiting for anything such a hardship. I wanted instant gratification, thank you very much. It took many years to overcome this. I certainly tried very hard to ignore all common sense. Indeed, if anyone was to try to give me advice I would listen politely and then ignore their words. Oh yes; impatience was indeed one of my constant companions.
I have been advised, during my conversations with The Collective Consciousness, that those things that trouble us can become our greatest assets; given time and a good deal of work. I believe that today I am one of the most patient people I know.
I am aware of others; they spring to mind as I write.
One, who comes to mind, had a problem with being consistent. She would have wonderful intentions for a day or two; then the old thoughts would return and back she would slide. Today, I am very pleased to say, she is overcoming this preponderance within her mindset and she is experiencing the stability that consistency can bring.
Another has had many concerns regarding endurance. She too has accepted this as her main downfall and is making a conscious effort to maintain a sense of endurance throughout those areas of her life where she once would have failed to endure.
We all have our various concerns whether it be impatience, inconsistency, a lack of staying power, stubbornness; the list is endless. However, with a little self knowledge we can turn those deficits into assets.)
