Patience 15th July 2017
Patience doesn’t mean doing nothing and waiting around for the things you want to magically appear. Patience is accepting that things may happen in a different order, at a different pace and at a different time than what you have in mind, and keeping a good attitude while you wait.
Patience is doing the best you can with what you have and being willing to continue on with a positive mindset, knowing that by continuing to put in the work, by continuing to align yourself with values, morals, beliefs and actions that are important to you, everything you want will come to you when the moment is right.
With calm acceptance, be patient as things happen in a different order than the one you had in your mind. Be open to understanding that sometimes things must unfold in their own time and no amount of forcing from us will change that.
Use this gentle yoga sequence to cultivate patience towards yourself. Your doing the best you can, go easy on yourself and trust the process.
Have patience with all things, but first have patience with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being. You’re a perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs or tribulations can ever change that. Unconditional self-acceptance is the core of a peaceful mind.
