Patience - By Sakoieta'
It amazes me that perfectly intelligent people lose what they want most by demanding something that is still in the formative stage and can’t or won’t wait until it has revealed itself better and more completely. There is a time to be bold and seek something and a time not to, but it takes wisdom to know when that is and when it should be done. If something is really worthwhile and worth having then it is worth waiting for, or worth working towards. But our fear of losing something before we have had the chance to make it our own can cause us to take risks that are often unwise, unproductive or unsafe. Insecurity makes us act in plain speaking ways that cause us to lose the very thing we wanted to keep. Action is a necessary part of living, but action has to be tempered with patience and waiting at time for the action to be complete and worthwhile so that it is not time or energy wasted and spent on something that could have been but wasn’t.
