A look back at 1 year ago.
I’ve been looking at past posts and reading more on how to cope with stress using mindfulness techniques. This post reminded me that I need to be patient, not just with others, but also with myself.
“Adopt the pace of nature;
her secret is patience.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“When I run after what I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me,
and without pain.”
“Do you have patience to wait until your mud settles,
and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving until the right action arrives by itself?
~ Lao Tzu (Toa Te Ching)
