"Be patient!!!" - have you heard this a lot?


Does this mean we are rushing? Not necessarily. "Be patient" could simply be a reminder to take things slow and not get ahead of yourself. It can be easy to feel like you're falling behind or not making progress fast enough, but sometimes the best thing you can do is slow down and be patient. Rushing can lead to mistakes and missed opportunities. So take a deep breath, stay focused, and trust that things will unfold at the right pace. Remember, good things come to those who wait.


Why?

Because they are more likely to make thoughtful decisions and not be swayed by impulsive actions. When you rush, you may not take the time to consider all of your options or weigh the potential consequences of your choices. Patience allows you to gather more information and assess the situation more thoroughly. This can lead to better outcomes and a greater sense of satisfaction in the long run. So, even though it may feel uncomfortable at times, try to embrace patience and trust the process. You may be surprised at the positive results that come from taking your time.




What does being patient have to do with age? Does that mean older people have more patience?


Being patient is not necessarily linked to age, as patience is a virtue that can be cultivated at any stage of life. While it is true that older people may have more life experience to draw upon, and therefore may have learned to be more patient over time, patience is not something that comes automatically with age. In fact, there are many young people who exhibit great patience, and there are certainly older people who struggle with it. Ultimately, patience is a mindset that requires practice and conscious effort, regardless of how old you are.







When do we lose patience? A broad perceptive!

We lose patience when we feel like we are wasting our time or when we are not getting the results we desire. It can also happen when we feel like we are being mistreated or disrespected. Losing patience is a natural human response, but it is important to recognize when it is happening and to try to manage our emotions accordingly. Sometimes taking a break, deep breathing, or talking to someone can help us regain our composure and approach the situation with a clearer mind. Ultimately, it is important to remember that losing patience does not solve anything and can often make the situation worse.


What can we do when we lose patience?

Do not shame yourself or get guilt tripped.

Remember that it is completely normal to lose patience at times. It is important to recognize when you are starting to feel frustrated or overwhelmed and take a step back to regain your composure. This may mean taking a few deep breaths, going for a walk, or engaging in a relaxing activity.

It is also helpful to communicate your feelings with others in a calm and respectful manner. Letting others know that you need a break or that you are feeling overwhelmed can prevent misunderstandings and conflicts.

Above all, do not shame yourself or allow others to guilt trip you for losing patience. Everyone has their limits, and it is okay to admit when you need a break. Remember to be gentle with yourself and practice self-care during these moments.



So why do we lose patience? Why can’t we be calm, still and zen and all that hubba bubba? Those people that look so patient - how did they master that kind of attitude?

The truth is that patience is not something that just comes naturally to most people. It is a skill that needs to be learned and practiced over time.


Those people who appear patient have likely put in a lot of effort to cultivate that kind of attitude. One reason why we may struggle with patience is because we live in a world that is increasingly fast-paced and demanding. We are used to getting what we want quickly and easily, and when we are forced to wait or face challenges, it can be frustrating.


Another reason why we may lose our patience is because we are tired, stressed, or overwhelmed. When we are running on empty, it can be difficult to remain calm and collected in the face of adversity.

However, with practice and mindfulness, we can all learn to be more patient. By taking a step back, practicing deep breathing, and focusing on the present moment, we can train our minds to be more resilient and less reactive. With time and effort, we too can become the patient and zen-like people we admire.


This is because Saturn is known to move slowly through the zodiac and takes approximately 29 years to complete its orbit around the sun. This prolonged journey can be seen as a lesson in perseverance and endurance, as it reminds us that everything in life takes time and effort.

Saturn is also associated with discipline and responsibility, as it governs the structures and systems that we rely on in our daily lives. Its influence can be felt in areas such as career, finances, and relationships, where it encourages us to take a practical and grounded approach to our goals and aspirations.


Despite its reputation as a challenging planet, Saturn ultimately offers us the opportunity to grow and mature, both as individuals and as a society. By embracing its teachings and embodying its virtues, we can cultivate a sense of inner strength and resilience that will serve us well in all areas of our lives.

Strengthening your patience, is strengthening your saturn and that also means strengthening your ability to persevere through difficult times. Saturn is the planet associated with discipline, hard work, and endurance. By building your patience and increasing your ability to wait for things to unfold in their own time, you are also improving your ability to work hard and stay focused on your goals.

Incorporating practices such as meditation, deep breathing, and mindfulness can help you build patience and strengthen your Saturn. These practices allow you to slow down and be present in the moment, which can help you cultivate a deeper sense of calm and patience when faced with challenging situations.


Remember, building patience is a process that takes time and effort, but the rewards are worth it. By strengthening your Saturn and increasing your ability to persevere through difficult times, you'll be better equipped to achieve your goals and live a more fulfilling life.

Saturn doesn’t ask to give up on our dreams, it only makes them real! - Steven Forrest

When life is testing your patience - know that a dream is about to be realised into fruition!

Patience means that you have trust that it will happen. So the next time you lose patience - what will you do?

Will you be mad? (thats okay but for how long?)

Or will you - even if you are mad at everything - trust and learn that the current situation is teaching you something you need to learn?

Let me know!
