A Little Patience



Such a simple word, yet it can be so difficult to do.

As a child, we were often told to be patient, (I am sure that many of you are telling that to your children.) but we live in a "now" society. 

We want instant gratification.

If we are trying to lose weight, we get upset if the scale doesn't budge that week.  If we have set a goal, we are frustrated if we haven't accomplished it by our deadline. 

We want to lose weight and reach our goals now.  And if we don't?

We feel like we have failed and often times, we give up. We have all been there, focusing on the negative.

Enter patience.

We have to remember that making any kind of change takes effort and perseverance.  Take a moment to look back at what you have accomplished and get excited about the things yet to come. 

If there is one thing that I have learning in the past few months is that patience isn't just about sitting back and waiting for things to happen.  It is about being proactive with the understanding that all things come in time.

So, sit back, enjoy your coffee and be patient.

Stay Healthy,
