P is for Patience.
“Patience is a virtue” I’m not sure the author of that phrase, Prudentius, had any idea the far reaching impact of his words. I think back to the fourth century when he wrote it and wonder what the pace of life was really like. Maybe P could be for Pace!
Patience is inherently linked to pace. Today, it’s all about race not pace and in doing so our patience seemingly is limited. When stress gets it’s tentacles into us, our patience level lowers. It’s an inverse proportion certainly.
I believe that when our patience level is low, it’s a sign that it’s time to slow down. When you can achieve this, patience exists. Staying in this state allows you to have endurance in your life. The kind of endurance needed so that when delays happen you do not have a stressful or negative response to the circumstances around us.
Having Patience is really about the non-reaction to things that are happening but rather seeing them and taking our time to react from the inner wisdom that guides us. That is when patience becomes the virtue that Prudentius speaks of. It’s the ability to create a pace that allows you to respond from your core beliefs rather than the circumstances that surround you.
Can you identify a time when you caught yourself with a low level of patience? What did you do? Did you react or step back and listen to your inner GPS on how to increase it?
