Patience – A Wickedly Wise Inspiration Card – Author Kate Woods

“Some Things Take Time!” We all know that fact, but most of us don’t like that fact. As we live our lives, if we don’t realize that we must learn to be patient, the road forward will be a much rockier one than it has to be.  At one time or another in your life you have probably heard the saying “Patience is a Virtue”. I usually expand that saying to “Patience is a Virtue – which I have none of…!” But that’s really not true because I learned very early in life that most things don’t happen on my preferred time table. As a matter of fact, more often than not, they happen much later than wished for and, often after a person has given up on whatever it is they are wishing and hoping, and planning and dreaming of attaining.  Patience is the quality of being patient, and the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like according to

I believe that some people are born with the gift of Patience, while others are not. However, I also believe that a skillful person can hone their ability to be patient over time. In our home we helped each other with a variation of a line from one of the original Star Wars movies by Yoda – “Patience you must have…”. In our version we make it an actionable directive – You must be patient Jedi Warrior.”  Believe it or not, it works! But why wouldn’t it? It’s Yoda Wisdom at it’s best!

Until next time have a warm heart but be COOL! Be happy, be well, and be the best you that you can be!

  1. Have you ever noticed how calm those are who have lots of patience – like Yoda. They seem to know that the Universe moves at its own speed and they have learned to align themselves with it. I liked the analogy Kate. Yoda is wise…
