“Why is patience so important? Because it makes us pay attention.” Paulo Coelho
I often struggle with being patient. Not necessarily the kind of patience it takes waiting in line or driving through traffic, but the kind where you simply itch to know what the future holds for you.
 I think we all experience a time that asks you to be patient. Be it 24 hours, several weeks or an entire year. These times will test you, in ways both big and small, in tiny accomplishments and understated defeat. Some days you find yourself just begging for answers to come your way. Days you seek to write the unwritten; mostly out of sheer curiosity or needed understanding. Days you hope with all your heart to know what’s around the next corner.
Maybe you’re running towards a dream that can no longer sit still. Building a career, a family, or relationship. Journeying from a place you no longer wish to be. Wherever you are, that place of great wanting and wondering, it requires of you your most sincere self, there lies your challenge and your answer: patience.
Coelho has it right. Our patience for our path does but one thing most perfectly – it teaches us to pay attention.
I have to believe that the work each of us is putting in today, the work you put in yesterday and the work you will put in tomorrow will ask of you patience for the answers you have yet to live.
It seems the only way to ever really arrive is to stop. Where you are at is exactly where you are supposed to be.

Happy Friday!
