I am grateful that I have finally learned this lesson.
I continue to practice patience with myself and others daily. I monitor my thoughts to ensure that I am saying kind words both aloud and in my head.
I monitor my emotions and watch to see when I become impatient with myself and others. I take a breath when I see that I am becoming impatient. This calms me down and gives me a moment to remind myself to be patient.
I give myself plenty of time and space to be patient with others. I leave extra time for standing in line at the grocery store. I leave plenty of space for others in line.
I am starting to see my patterns of behavior. I notice when I get out of balance with my thoughts and emotions. I pull myself back into alignment. I breathe again more slowly.
I notice old, unsupportive beliefs coming up from time to time. I take the time to reframe those beliefs into more positive beliefs. I smile and take another breath.
Love is patient. I choose to see others through the eyes of love. I choose to see myself through the eyes of love.
I recognize that I could do even better. I see now that this is an ongoing practice. I breathe once more as I accept where I am at and vow to practice patience once again.
Today, I feel my power of patience increasing with each breath. I start to smile at others in line at the gas station. I allow my eyes to gaze softly with kindness towards them. I remain calm and feel grateful for the patience that I have worked so hard to develop.
- How could I show more patience with myself?
- How could I show more patience toward others?
- Where in my life could I experience more patience?
