Then this word crossed my desk...
I have that!
I want things, I plan for them, I set goals and take steps everyday to move myself closer to them. Then they don't come to me as quickly as I want them and I get impatient. I get impatient and forget everything I know.
I forget that you are only in charge of your desires not their arrival
I forget that you don't always get what you want but it is usually because there is something better waiting for you.
I forget that buckets are filled a drop at a time
I forget that the best place to be is in now, breathing this breath and letting the future unfold according to a greater plan.
I forget that things happen for a reason
I forget that the reason is not always clear
I forget that I am exactly where I am meant to be at this minute
I forget that I am not alone in the world and I have a role to play in someone else's story
I forget that we never remain in any place in life too long
I forget that the things I cried about in the past have shaped where I am today and made me a stronger person
I forget to trust
Impatience does this to me.
I forget to have faith
Yesterday was a day of impatience, today was a day of recognition, tomorrow is a day of growing in patience and practicing to breath...
...So I don't forget.
