Patience (pā-shəns) is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without becoming annoyed or upset; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast.

This is one we all stuggle with. And though it may take a while for us some of us to master we can still put patience into practice. Whether you are the stay at home mom with a million kids, the supervisor at work with employees who think they own the company, or the husband with the wife that just wont shut up you can use this as a little reminder.

So how do we live without cutting people off at the intersection because we are late, or being rude at the cashier for holding up the line or rushing God for our dreams to come true. Well we should go back to the basics by appreciating what we have and accepting the things that we can not change. Why rush to get rich instead of being thankful for your present. Don’t you realize that there is someone out there who wishes they had half of what you have? So lets practice patience and take that deep breathe before we totally freak out because someone else is not moving as fast as we think they should.
