Worth the Wait?

Often, in relationships, we try something new like a new way of expressing ourselves or how we approach the art of love and don’t see immediate results
It is easy to get discouraged when we don’t see  instant expected change.

In times like these we can take a breath and assess what is going on inside.
“Am I doing things the same old way and expecting different results?”

If you answer “no,” that you are doing something differently, but haven’t yet yielded the desired results, you may sit back and shower appreciation on yourself for having the courage to do something differently.  in this space it is easier to access the necessary faith to stay the course until you see the new come in.  Many times, we find that we see the change in hindsight, looking back at the way things once were.

If you answer “yes,” then it is time for a shift in approach.  A mentor  who lights the path can be very valuable and offer shortcuts.

It is important to show love and patience during any transitional period.  When we become impatient, critical, or shift into complaining mode, that is like wearing cement galoshes and will ensure that we will stay in an undesirable state.

Your turn:
Can you be patient with yourself and others knowing that we are all doing the best we can with the tools we have? Can you lovingly express gratitude for the courage that you are able to muster in the here and now? Can you be friendly toward yourself as you might be toward a loved one?
