Imagination, Day 28
“Patience is power.
Patience is not an absence of action;
rather it is “timing”
it waits on the right time to act,
for the right principles
and in the right way.”
― Fulton J. Sheen
Patience is to remain calm when solving a problem—to proceed at an easy pace as we react to any situation.
Sometimes we are tempted to hurry through a project or other task.
In my profession as a landscape gardener, I have a rule:
“If you get in a hurry, you will mess up.” (loosely translated from the vernacular).
This is a valid and important rule.
Sometimes things go wrong and I am usually able to say, “Well, I got in a hurry.”
We need patience in order to deal with anger, also
My friend Tommy Cobb once told me, “Anger uses up too much energy.”
And I find that to be true.
Patience is freedom.
But patience doesn’t come easy. It takes practice and time.
