There may be an uneasiness resulting sometimes in self-abuse or neglect. This crippled landscape may blame others for our negative behaviors. Ultimately we are responsible for what happens to us. One of the benefits of committing your voice to a journal is reinforcing and expanding your vision. You are stretching your mind to new horizons and the rainbow of regeneration. You won't need the approval of others to make a statement.
Patience is steady as time, staying on course through life's hills and valleys. Patience is fortitude, courage and untiring. Yes, it is difficult but over a period of time it will bring mental calmness that will help you master negative feelings such as fears and indecisiveness.
With patience "I can't" becomes "I can." This does not mean that you become egotistical, instead you develop a wholesome self-respect; feelings of inferiority make you feel weak and ineffective. They may begin in childhood, but these feelings are something you can overcome.
We begin to heighten our awareness and explore our higher consciousness. As we listen to our higher selves we begin to develop the healthy side of our minds. But how do we overlook people who are critical no matter how much we try to circumvent their insinuations and make peace? Sometimes we have to retreat from the company of that person or persons and avoid the temptation to attack them and maintain an attitude of grace. Know that you can be at peace even when there are cross questions and crooked answers. When we are vigilant and patient there will be "angels" or a guiding light to assist us in beating back the demons and remove the thorns placed in our path.
Keep journaling and living in the present. To live in the present is crucial because the joy of life is looking for the blessings to come.
is steady as time, staying on course
through life's hills and valleys.
It is investing time and energy
concentrating on your faith;
silently structuring goals-
allowing the plant to grow at its own pace.
Success comes to those who believe
wait and work as they wait.
Every seed is a miracle.
Plant the seed of patience,
nourish it with faith and love
and the tree will become strong and steadfast
