    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!
