WANTING TO BE THROUGH THINGS
"Patience has a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish."
~ John Quincy Adams ~
Why is it so hard to be patient? To have to wait in traffic, or in a long line, or for answers to our inquiries or test results? We are so speed oriented and obsessed with knowing outcomes, but this doesn't make for much of a quality life- always rushing and pushing against whatever we're up against, wanting to be through it, past it, and in the clear. But the clear is fleeting at best, and having to wait for some of the time or much of the time while things unfold is a basic reality of life on earth.
I accept the stop and flow of daily life and find a way to appreciate it all.
