Patience of a Saint?

Waiting for a book review is like waiting for the oven bell to ring signaling the time to retrieve my favorite cookie. Out from the warmth depths comes a chewy, delicious fantasy of the most chocolatey gooey goodness ever. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into….Sorry, a little off track this morning. The point is, I have never been a patient person. If I wanted something to happen, I made it happen. But, as the years passed and I’ve become a grown woman, I can tell you, making it happen? It doesn’t always pan out. There have been many instances where I’ve had to wait and wait and wait and just when I thought it would happen? I had to wait again! It’s exhausting and frustrating as hell. However, here’s what I learned. I’m not going to say, “if it was meant to be”…blah, blah, blah. (albeit true!) What I will tell you is that it will happen when it’s meant to happen. I noticed for me personally, when I stopped bucking the flow, things unfolded the way they should. For me this is a big lesson. As I have put this practice to the test I have learned more and more the value in it. It’s sort of an inner peace thing. It’s not to say that I don’t sweat the small stuff, I do and I don’t think that will ever change. But, I have learned that eveything works out in the end. Give it a try in your life. See if it works. You’d be surprised. Tell me, are you a patient person? Do you believe in the flow of destiny? Don’t be shy, I want to know.

With love,

Cherrie

    Hey sorry I didn’t sign sign on yesterday…glad to hear that the storm wasn’t that bad. As for patients I never really had any until I had my kids and then I realized that I had more patients than I thought…and saw that I was quickly losing them…HA HA! All kidding aside..as I get older I seem to learn more and more about life itself…I never really listened to my parents on what was right cause I thought I knew best…and now I see my kids acting the same way…however the 1 thing that works best for me is…I never lie to my children. I let them them know of all the things that I had seen and done in my life…this way they know they can always come to me with anything and I will always have their back. It hasn’t back fired on me yet so it must be working.

    My daughter is going to be 20 yrs old in a few months and I must say she is a good kid growing into a great women and I would like to think that I had something to do with that. The boys on the other hand is a different story…you see never being a boy myself it’s a little harder telling them what I’ve been though myself. That is where I’m learning new things…I feel that we are growing together and when we have a bridge to cross they know that I’m there to cross it with them…As for destiny… Hummm!! Well looking back at all the things that I have been though…I’m not really sure that destiny had a great plan for me other then I shoud keep my eyes opened at all times to make my own destiny happen…if you don’t look for it…it might just pass you by…I’m still waiting!!!
