It is no secret that I am not really a patient person. I am driven – constantly moving, working. But a month ago, I developed a health condition that required me to stop. Like completely.
Now, the health situation is NOT life threatening – and in the long run, it is not serious. But it does require some changes on my end. Changes to the way I live my life, changes to how I do things.
All good changes.
The time off from work has been good. I have been restless, anxious, frustrated and down right MAD.
And I have learned patience.
I found this quote the other day, and I think it sums up what I’ve learned over the last month –
“Patience is not passive; on the contrary, it is active; it is concentrated strength” – Edward G Bulwer-Lytton
I still have some rough days ahead of me, I am certain of that. But I am on the mend, armed with a kind of patience I have always needed, but not developed.
My blogging will still be somewhat intermittent for a while – but I miss you guys too much to stay away for too long!
