A little more patience

Have a little more patience, and you’ll have a lot less stress. Take a deep, relaxing, refreshing breath, and allow life to unfold as it will.

Don’t take it as a major personal affront if someone else is not as quick or as competent as you would like. Find a way to enjoy the moment rather than poison it.

Instead of being obsessed about what you might be missing, be thankful for what you have. Instead of being so anxious about what’s next, focus on the richness of what’s now.

Let go of the life-wasting need to prove how important you think you are. Put your energy into improving how good and helpful and creative you truly are.

Enjoy the journey, and enjoy the rich, unique qualities of those who journey with you. Expect the absolute best of life, while giving your vision plenty of time to unfold.

Have a little more patience. Give your life and your world, and all the others in it, the time they deserve.

— Ralph Marston
