We live in a world of instant gratification. Almost any kind of information or desire is at our fingertips.


This kind of "I need it now" mentality can be very toxic for living within our program. We have upgraded our technology and the speed at which we connect, but we haven't upgraded our minds and awareness.


Acting on your dreams and expressing your gifts is like planting a seed. I love using this example. The seed has potential already within it. With the proper soil, watering, sunlight and TIME, the seed will blossom.


Especially in Western Society, we are so focused on results and NOW, that we can actually impede our seeds’ growth. Imagine planting a seed in the ground and coming back an hour layer, digging it up and wondering why it's not a fully formed tree yet - and perhaps even getting mad,angry or depressed that it's "taking so long."


Part of walking on The Path of Recovery is for us to embrace patience. I used to ask for patience, thinking that The higher power would speed things up to the pace that I desired. But I came to learn that that isn't what patience is.



So, what does patience feel like? For me patience is the slow, yet perfect unfolding of my dreams one day at a time. It's embracing the uneasiness of all the things that are still unsettled in my heart and having the faith that The higher power is working for my best interest, even if I can't see it or feel it in this moment. Patience is accepting the present fully as it is and then course correcting. Patience is allowing yourself to make mistakes and then learn from them. Patience is removing the word "should" from your vocabulary and instead, understanding that everything that's happened in your life has been necessary to teach you.


Patience is accepting your friends, mate and partners exactly where they are with no insistence that they change for you.




When you cultivate this kind of patience, you leave room for miracles, for The higher power to deliver even greater circumstances to you than your rushing mind could imagine and for epic love to emerge, rather than be forced.


Don't have patience? Take 10 minutes, close your eyes and meditate only on the breath coming in and out of your nose. Take a yoga class and embrace the hard poses. Be of service to those less fortunate than you and see how blessed you really are.


A wonderful request to The Higher Power is, "I trust you, so not in my time, in your perfect time".


Then sit back, settle in and enjoy the journey one day at a time.
