PATIENCE MONTH: DAY 20: “I hope you choose patience. Even when you are overwhelmed by unknowns. When someone cannot give you answers, when you begin to wonder why you’re here, when you simply want to give up: be patient.”― Kirsten Robinson
This was my day yesterday. I had so much interesting exchange with the world. It was amazing, because I did not feel patient at all, but I manifested a different experience for myself by pretending to be patient. Just pretended. That old “fake it till you make it” deal. Love it!
When I pretend to be patient, I become so. I have to step outside the story in my head (Ego) and the “feelings” going on, driven by that story, and just ACT patient. That is all. Pretty soon, I find outcomes that could not happen otherwise. I find that people around me step into a different way of being than if I am huffing and puffing and manipulating to get my way. Oh!
It was funny at the end, and I acted outside Ego. I did what I could and left ALL the results up to that Power who has WAY more solutions than I do. And all is well. It was interesting, and the PRACTICE of being patient is almost like being patient. Pretending to do it works for me. I take a deep breath and re-align my brain to just let life unfold according to the Universal Power’s way of things. I know I am not a patient woman it is not my default setting. But several people thanked me at the end of the day for being so kind and patient. THAT always makes me laugh inside. “I hope you choose patience.”
