The price of patience, the reward of perseverance…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was more than spectacular. A jingle jangle jumble of extraordinary colors. I could not say wow any more fervently.

Patience is a funny thing. You can be patient forever, and all that does is let you miss opportunity. You can show your patience and people se you as calm and easy going, or slow and weak. You can be patient and stoic and people may see you as aloof. You can be patient, and perhaps good things will come to you. You can even be patient and perhaps change the world. Patience makes for a predicable day, or does it?

Have you ever been too patient? Have you ever been so patient that you lost something important?

Perseverance is a synonym of patience, but is it? If you persevere you push through everything to achieve your goals and in the process take your time in the face of defeat, and anything else that is thrown at you. To me one is active, and one passive. How about to you?

So as the sun sets on another day, find your way the way you want to. There seems to be non way around it, you need to do you. Active or passive, with patience or perseverance, but as you do remember, only you can find a way. BE your own way and patiently persevere to your goals, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love patiently, and persevere…
