pays off, sometimes soon, sometimes little late and sometimes very late. But it happens for sure.
My patience levels definitely have been changing for the better over time, a little with parenting A and a little with the experiences and the people that I encounter. One thing I have learnt all along is, the way things can be solved or tackled with patience can never ever be done with frustration or giving up.
I have met quite a few people with loads of patience and MIL being one of them, I patiently aspire to acquire so much of patience, atleast in the years to come, if not immediately. Among the lot more motivating / the formula-enforcing experiences, some are :
The experience of a college senior, who is one of the brightest of the batch, has remained unselected in all the campus interviews till the end, until she was flown by air just for the interview (which was not very common some 14 years back ), and was given an awesome offer 🙂
The experience of a friend who has won laurels with a fat pay check, until all of a sudden had to lose everything and remain even jobless for sometime, waited patiently only to clear the big civil services exam and become the IPS, his dream come true 🙂
The experience of a friend who has patiently waited for her big day of getting married, got engaged today. Am so happy for her and wish loads of wonderful memories to come along her way 🙂
So all my near and dear ones, patience is one big thing which can take you miles and miles further, though the destination might not be visible at the moment. Just don’t lose hope and keep trying 🙂
