Delay

I am learning to be
grateful for delays.
This is not an easy
lesson for me. Yet,
again and again I
have seen that a delay
saved me from acting
before it was time.

I am learning to state
my intention and then
let go, surrendering
to the Force that
orchestrates life with
amazing dexterity,
fitting the pieces of
the puzzle with precision
until a picture of
perfection emerges.

    awesome! Just yesterday I was telling a junior at work that my biggest weakness in impatience and how I’m trying to overcome that. I think the only thing that will help me is to accept delay in the way you have suggested. everything is happening for a reason. great thoughts, Pat!

    sometimes it takes the fullness of time

    strategy is not about figuring out

    how to win a battle
    but about how to survive the war

    it takes time to heal and recover
    it’s fits and start, advances, rests and sometimes, retreats to proven safe ground

    be prepared, be aware

    wake up
