Experience has taught me this, that we undo ourselves by impatience. Misfortunes have their life and their limits, their sickness and their health. – Montaigne
I don’t feel as though I’m on the right path toward personal growth. Nothing feels like it’s working. I am misunderstood. Nothing is going well at home or in my personal life. I just don’t feel as though I can see it through. Why doesn’t someone help me?
Impatience! I become fretful and blame everyone else for my own shortcomings.
Impatience! I lose touch with the tempo of life and my own particular rhythm.
I am convinced that my addiction and emotional issues will never cease tormenting me. I better slow down and get back in touch with life’s beautiful movement. I know that all things have their season and their motion and ultimately their end. It may feel like winter to me now, but here in Phoenix, summer will be here tomorrow! Nothing remains motionless; everything changes and grows. There is a pattern to life; if I am patient enough to see it. I need to slow it all down, get in touch with the rhythms of my life and life outside me.
