The Wisdom of Patience

“Things take as long as they take.  You can’t push the river.  There are things in life that we must simply wait for, even if we don’t want to.  The more we reconcile ourselves to the fact that life moves at its own pace, the more patience we’ll have.  Waiting patiently asks us to allow life to move through and transform us as we bend like cattails in the wind, twisting and turning but somehow surviving”  M.
