Patience is … a Lifestyle?

I’ve been having to be patient. Not because I want too, but because I literally have too.

And honestly, I’m not mad at it.

I’ve always had to be patient in different times in my life, but its now finally clicking. Like “ohhhhhh, THIS is what its supposed to feel like.”

Patience isn’t a momentary thing nor should we only apply it at certain times. Patience is a lifestyle. Patience is something we have to become.

Patience isn’t a momentary thing nor should we only apply it at certain times. Patience is a lifestyle. Patience is something we have to become.

With my forthcoming business, my romantic love life, my media career, my living situation, my finances, my celibacy journey — it’s all literally been forcing me into practicing the art of patience.

And I’m not mad at it, at all. In fact, its bought a calm and a peace into my life that I didn’t expect. There’s a certain level of clarity that I’m experiencing that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. There’s a certain stride in my walk now knowing that things will fall into place in its time. There’s a new level of self-confidence that I’ve welcomed and embraced.

I love it here.

When I sit back and reflect, I think “What’s the rush anyway? What am I rushing to? Or from? What am I afraid of”?

Rushing through ones process usually means two things: a lack of confidence and a lack of faith.

It means that I don’t have confidence in myself or what I’m pursuing. That I’m scared if I don’t rush to the finish line, I may just miss my golden opportunity.

A lack of confidence and faith will have you operating in fear real quick.

Then I realize: Everything is literally working and moving. Nothing is ever stagnant, even when reality seems to say otherwise. But, you cannot always see energy in motion; And thats when you trust that all the seeds you’ve planted will inevitably bear fruit — as long as you continue to nourish them.

This gives me the ultimate confidence in myself. The ultimate confidence in my journey. The ultimate confidence in my future. And honestly, the ultimate confidence in GOD! Won’t he do it? Yes, yes he will.

So, seeds I continue to plant and nourish.

Now, I’d be remiss if I didn’t admit that sometimes doubt creeps in, but the real key is in how I choose to react in those moments. Instead of allowing anxiety to get the best of me, I sit with it, cry it out if I have too, and then get back to the mission.

It’s all part of the process.

Operating in patience is certainly a lifestyle and its what we have to become if we want long-term success and returns on our investments.

Be faithful, be persistent, but above all, be patient.

Don’t let fear or anything outside of you rush your process.
