Would you believe if I tell you that I’m that type of person before who throws a lot of tantrums whenever I’m so mad at something, and would just shout out of nowhere?
Yes, I used to be that person. And I know it took a lot of guts for me to be honest about that side of me. But since I’m writing about patience, then I should be bold enough to share it.
The thing is that I’m not proud of that attitude of mine, and it’s not the kind of person that I wanted to be. So I’ve changed. I’ve decided to become a better person; molded and enlightened by an experience that I will never ever forget. And along the way, I was proud of my improvements.
So how did I do it? It’s by thinking and living of the idea that “Patience is a virtue.”
But the biggest trick is to use the “Power of Pause.”
How do I do it?
Whenever I’ll feel like there’s such anger boiling within me, or I’m on the verge of losing it.
I would just PAUSE for a few seconds…
Count from 1 2 3…4 5 6….
And after that, I would feel a little better. Not much. But I know, I’m finally okay.
It wasn’t easy at first but I’m pleased to say that I’ve finally been able to control that sudden tantrum of mine.
So why did I entitled my blog “Patience is everything.”?
The reason is that from the moment that I’ve learned to control myself to be more patient. There were a lot of things that I’ve discovered whenever a person is more patient not just to himself, but also to all the things around him.
And here are the following realizations that I’ve learned,
It takes a lot of patience to WAIT…
It takes a lot of patience to FORGIVE.
It takes a lot of patience to be UNDERSTANDING.
It takes a lot of patience to be KIND.
It takes a lot of patience to LOVE.
It takes a lot of patience to be FAITHFUL.
It takes a lot of patience to LET GO.
It takes a lot of patience to CHANGE.
It takes a lot of patience to be STRONG.
It takes a lot of patience to be BRAVE.
And lastly, it takes a lot of patience to be a GOOD PERSON.
So you see, patience can lead to a lot of good things in a person’s life.
Actually, I’ve had a lot of realizations about it. But so far, these are the key points that have molded me to become a better person.
However, I’m far from trying to be a perfect one, for I’m just a mind wanderer who’s trying her best to live a wonderful and meaningful life.
