Patience is a key quality that can help us reach our goals and cope with life’s challenges. When we take the time to be patient, we are able to look at things from different perspectives, weigh our options, and make informed decisions. With patience, we can think before we act and avoid impulsive behavior that may lead to regret or other negative outcomes. In addition to helping us make better decisions, patience gives us the opportunity to accept and appreciate our circumstances without feeling frustrated or overwhelmed. As the saying goes, “A jug fills drop by drop” -Buddha. This proverb reminds us of the importance of taking life one step at a time and that progress is made gradually if we remain patient and consistent.
