It seems that in this world, everyone wants that latest gadget, to be a millionaire yesterday, to have it now. Unfortunately, life does not work that way. I have been trying to teach my daughter about being patient and waiting for something. I know it can be hard, to want something and not get it right away. We live in a world of get it now to be satisfied. It’s hard to break from that.
While doing this, I began to think about why being patient is important, and I came up with some ideas. One it makes one appreciate what you are getting more. Two that good thing, take time to grow, you wouldn’t eat a fruit before it ripens. Third, it helps with stress, and keeps one calm.
I do believe that I and my daughter will learn to be patient. I realize that it will not happen overnight, however it will happen someday.
