In times of stress, our impatience surfaces. We may say things we don’treally mean or intend to say things we don’t really mean or intend to say -all out of proportion to reality. Or we may become sullen, communicatingthrough emotion and attitude rather than words, eloquent messages ofcriticism, jugdement, and rejection. We then harvest hurt feelings andstrained relationships. Patience is the practical expression of faith, hope,wisdom, and love. It is a very active emotion. It is not indifference,sullen endurance, or resignation. Patience is emotional diligence. Itaccepts the reality of step-by-step processes and natural growth cycles.Life provides abundant chances to practice patience – to stretch theemotional fibre – from waiting for a late person or plane to listeningquietly to your child’s feelings and experiences when other things are pressing.
— Stephen R. Covey
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured and far away.

Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.

Let go of your attachment to being right, and suddenly your mind is more open. You’re able to benefit from the unique viewpoints of others,without being crippled by your own judgment.

Living is a thing you do now or never…which do you?
The distance doesn’t matter, it is only the first step that is difficult.
