However when I think about patience, my hubby comes to my mind, a couple of months after we got married I got very sick, I had to be in and out of the hospital, my hubby works long hours and his job is very hard; he is on his feet for the entire day. It was especially hard for him while I was in the hospital because he had to take the time to come and visit me and plus do his homely duties.
I don’t think I would have had as much patience as he did, I would do the same for him but I know I would be a little agitated, I believe that patience is a skill that you develop over time. I get impatient if I am in traffic, if there is a long line in the bank, if it is taking too long for me to do a task, if you ask me too may question; today I was filling out some insurance papers and I got so impatient, because I thought the amount of information they asked for was ridiculous.
If you are not patient you get upset easily so therefore you will get sick more often. I do not have any patience and so I worry a lot because I just want to see things going how I want it to go. Right now as I am writing this post I am not feeling well and I know why; I have some issues I am worried about.

You are more likely to achieve your dreams when you are patient. We will take the time to figure out what we want in life and do the necessary research on how to achieve it. It is my humble opinion that a lot of times we do not tap into our full potential because we lack patience.
Please go after your dreams, develop some patience so that you will do the work required for you to achieve your dreams. We must have the patience to work on whatever we need to work on to get to where we want. If we have to spend hours practicing on that musical instrument; then we must. If I have to practice that math problem over and over to get it; then guess what it has to be done.
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. Harriet Tubman
