Impatient and restive? Why and How to Practice Patience
What is patience? I like to start with the dictionary. “Patience: the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, difficulty, or annoyance without getting angry or upset.” I don’t know anyone whose life is free of these three. In fact, I can’t recall a single day in my own life when at least one of them didn’t make an appearance.
