Patience….what a virtue indeed

Hello Loyal Listeners!

We’ve all heard it a million times…..Patience is a virtue…..I used to think “how lame” and “what a bunch of BS.”  It just has that certain ring to it right??  Sounds like your grandmother is lecturing you from the couch that was on the set of Roseanne with a tea in her hand while you’re trying your hardest to get out for the party while no one is letting you leave!  That’s probably because patience doesn’t come in handy as much in our youth.  We are young and quick, whimsical and fast pasted.  But what we have in being swift we certainly lack in wisdom during those years.  Somewhere in the middle of later half of my thirties I found the perfect balance between both.  I still live life in the fast lane here in NYC and nothing ever seems to slow down but I also don’t feel anymore like it’s Grandma teaching me about patience being a virtue.  Now I know that value…..waiting for things is a very special experience in life.  i feel like the world has slowly taught me this lesson through many series of things not going as swiftly as I wanted and I learned along the way.  Waiting for a friend, like my friend Stitch who I only get to see in person a few times a year.  Waiting for a love as I continue to patiently wait to get an opportunity to love again and be happy.  Waiting for a bottle of wine to age and be perfect a few years down the road was an impossibility back in those days!    Waiting for yourself….to come around and finally be exactly who you’ve been patiently waiting to be and get to celebrate that moment when you are exactly who you’ve wanted to be as a direct product of your PATIENCE.  Don’t get me wrong loyal listeners; patience can be annoying at times and the Department of Motor Vehicles… is the epitome of that!   But even then…how good does it feel when you got your license and you’re walking out!  Try to embrace patience….try to let it make you grow and know you’ll be strong.  Harness the waiting into goodness and make it all the better when you get that sweet reward!
