Honing Important Virtues

I have never really considered myself an impatient person but have begun to notice that the older I get, the harder it is for me to be patient. As we age, we become more acutely aware of the passage of time and this feels even more true for me now with my birthday coming up. I am currently at a crossroads in my life – I know where I want to be and what I want to be doing, but can’t seem to get there fast enough to avoid frustration. 

When we know what we want, it can be hard to trust in the journey it takes to get there. Because you have a clear picture in your head, you want the path to be as direct as possible. Of course what we WANT and what we NEED aren’t always in line, so the universe throws us curve balls and makes the damn road winding as hell.
