Mindfulness Monday – Patience

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.”

~ Rumi

“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)

About Wendy

I'm taking a journey learning to live a mindful and happy life, while living with Chronic Illnesses. I'm a bit of an idealist. I want everyone to be happy and think everyone should want the same for others. I don’t understand mean people. I cry easily and laugh often. I love cartoons, Dr. Who, and my wonderful husband...not in that order!

  1. Yes, we need to adopt the pace of nature. In her wisdom and her abundance, she provides lessons, meanings, warm greetings, and love.
    I need to learn patience as well. Can I sit til the water runs clear?

  2. Wendy, have you heard of Prentice Mulford? He is quite wonderful. His books are inexpensive on Amazon kindle. I’m reading THOUGHTS ARE THINGS AND THE GOD IN YOU. He speaks of adopting to the pace of nature too. I find his philosophy helpful. xo
