[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Patience is part of the journey

Patience is natural to those who trust. Sure of the ultimate interpretation
of all things in time, no outcome already seen or yet to come can cause
them fear. ACIM

I used to tell myself to be patient I would say "your time is coming,
blessings are on the way" This mind-set kept me envying other people's
turns and overlooking today in favour of some tomorrow.

Patience is important but it's more than simply waiting for results,
resolutions, blessings or anything else.

It's about seeing the goodness right in front of you and being grateful in
the moment. Even when you are working hard + stretching yourself to fulfil your dream.

Be patient by embracing the journey for growth + the love

Not for bragging rights or proof of your worth

Be willing to experience everything your journey has to offer and don't try
to skip lessons that life brings you

Without patience you are always unsatisfied, focused on lack, waiting for
the next thing

Without patience you spend your whole life missing your greatest blessing
which is the journey itself

Catch that

Peace
