    I am my own worst enemy I find it easy to have patience with others, the task for me is to see myself in the same light as I see others

    Probably me, like so many here, I have to say. I could not wait but had to before there was even space to think about this question and reply to it. Happy to be here now!

    I do. I need to remember it’s okay to make mistakes.

    Me, for putting up with me during this time of change and growth. I can be extra appreciative and grateful for such a patient and kind partner who is always supportive and kind to me. I am very fortunate.

    Doing has a beginning and and end. Waiting is an eternal quality. Create the necessary atmosphere and wait. We over-express today. More perception is necessary, then the expression will be of a great quality.

    Everyone. I tend to be impatient with people, mostly due to my own failings to be really frank haha. I need to push myself and hit more points of limit and exhaustion.

    My partner. Sometimes I have unrealistic expectations. Today I want to enjoy the day as it comes with no expectations. Patience means not trying to control a situation.

    I also need to be more patient with myself.

    Honestly, I think I need to be patient with myself today. I’ve fallen behind on a few things and have been feeling a bit stressed, so reassuring myself that I am doing the best I can right now can help me be kinder to myself.

    I live with a tedious inner dynamic shifting from joyful gratitude for abundance to melancholic sense of insufficiency. The latter besets me now and I need patience to graciously wait it out. And to do so with a lightness of heart.

      I love your post dear Elaine, because I feel the same inner shifting. The sense of insufficiency is about myself, so I need this kind of patience as well.

    Today my son was acting up because he’s a teenager and he doesn’t like the word no.
    So I have to be patient.

    Hopefully no one, but I’m hosting a zoom meeting this afternoon with my old Peer Group from The Transition Network after a year with no meetings. This long hiatus was precipitated by over-reactions of another member and me – wish us luck!

      Wow, good for you. Let me (us) know how this works out.

        Thanks – it went great, happily. To relieve my restlessness, I did some hand stitching for a quilt block, which was fun. I told the other member how glad I was that she was getting some time in person with friends, and she thanked me for organizing the zoom. Thanks for your interest, Mary 🙂

    I need my patience today. I have taken on a lot recently and my mind is full of all of the tasks I need to complete. I would like to have patience for myself and remember I am just one person.

    My immediate reaction to the question was that I need to be patient with myself today. Then I started reading the comments already posted by others and I realized I’m not alone! I will pause several times today to check my inner dialogue and be sure I’m being patient with myself and all who cross my path.

    Myself. I just read the comments, and at least I am in good company….. Now I know which meditation I am going to do…offering forgiveness to myself.
    This might sound strange, but I have been so frustrated and impatient with my immune system and my body for not recovering from Covid quickly. It is very true…….I was diagnosed a month ago, and I am in the fourth wave of it. The doctor told me it might take 3 months or longer to fully recover. The “waves’ are not debilitating like some people are having, but still….so thank you for this….time to go meditate.

      Dear Mary Pat, I have read your sharings for many years and fully believe you will beat this. I have the feeling that the more you can be gentle loving and accepting of your self, the more quickly healing chemicals in your body will be able to heal you. I think your negative emotions may be slowing down the process. Give yourself the love time and space that you would give to a sick child or your beloved. You probably know everything I just said, but I just really wanted to tell you what I was feeling as I read your sharing. ♥️♥️♥️

      My Mom got Covid In mid September at her Assisted Living Facility. She had no symptoms other than a few sneezes and at 88 years old I was so pleased that she almost seemed to be skating through this, but at about the 12th day she became very weak and then within another 4 or 5 days brain fog set in.
      I need the strength and the patience each day to accept the situation as it is.
      I do still have my Mom, I can hold her hand and tell her I love her. I see a glimmer in my Moms eyes when I tell her I love her and I am so grateful for that. Strength and patience is helping me to love and be grateful for Mom as she is. ♥️♥️♥️

      Thank you for the update, Mary Pat. I would feel impatient, too, in your situation. I hope you can embrace your inner child and be a little lazy! ☺ I am wishing the best for your full recovery, too!

    I need to be more patient with myself in my expectations of others all the time. Doing it day by day helps.

    The day is just beginning and I don’t know the answer to this yet. I suspect if something appears, it may be that I need patience with myself.

    Today, I’ll look at “patience” as an antidote to anxiety. “Quiet or calmness in waiting for something to happen…” Often, I’ve thought of patience as more or less putting up with something and defining that as a virtue. And maybe it IS “enduring through” things at times. But today, Instead, I will define it as the belief that there is a better outcome if I quietly and non-anxiously wait for it….

    There are times when we all need patience with ourselves. When the feeling comes up all that we need to do is remember to focus on our breathe and relax..

    My wife has many good qualities but often requires patience that she lacks.

      Ditto on that for me. Grant it there can be times for me as well when my patience runs thin, but it’s definitely is better .

    My husband, my mom, and myself. We are going to be working an event together today, and while this is not our first rodeo, my husband tweaked his back yesterday when he was at the kitchen prepping. That put us behind last night and also caused a disagreement or two. But we are up early, he’s standing more upright, and I know it’s going to be a good day. My mom is a saint to help us out while the business is still new, but I have to be patient with her because she’s not used to food and bev and has gotten a little flustered at past events. We have a plan to keep things flowing today, and I trust it will be fine. But I will still need to be patient and gentle with all three of us, along with all of the people we will be feeding today!

    At 4:10 AM, I have no idea who may need my patience today, so perhaps I just need to remember to be patient with myself. Being patient with myself usually brings good things for everyone around me.

    Myself. I tend to do everything quickly. Oh I find myself so annoying then. It helps if I sing “Feelin’ Groovy” by Simon & Garfunkel.”

      Ha ha, I wrote myself before I read your and Kevin’s responses. SO, that’s three out of three so far.
