THE Virtue

I don’t have some witty snow-related anecdote to convey the need for Patience, my thought for the week; so this should be pretty short and to the point. Patience was my glaring issue this week...patience all the way to the end. When what I want is directly in front of me yet remains just out of reach; this exposes impatience which then spawns the frustration that is the byproduct of a misallocated value in outcome over process. When the goal is visible, it is almost automatic to do something a little different, a little extra to try and get what I want, when and how I want...a liiiiittle sooner. I don’t think that glimpse of the outcome is a taunt intended to dishearten or aggravate, and most certainly not to distract from the value of the journey. I have found it to fortify fortitude, provide strength to keep on keepin on (as the old heads say). If I keep doing what got the goal in view, what is intended for me will continue to come into my life when it’s supposed to...not when I think it should, and most times not how I think it will. I can damn sure botch a blessing trying to repackage it in ‘supposed to’ type thinking. What had to be reiterated for me was “when I focus on a specific outcome, I run the risk of getting in the way of God’s plan.” (thanks Will)

Patience is THE virtue and always always value the process...
