Patience will test your virtue

Standard

Patience will test your virtue
Have you ever had situations unfold that require your patience and that patience is tested in many ways,shapes and forms until you feel yourself at breaking point?
Sure you have, ah and what a virtue to master!
I have learnt (or still learning) that when you set limits on yourself and allow that mind of yours to start controlling your thought process then this creates unnecessary stress and anxiety.
Why do we feel the need to control things that aren’t in our control? Because we fear an outcome that we may not feel comfortable with or isn’t in our mind favourable.
The word control is a word I dislike, it’s negative and it’s limiting. You limit yourself when you try to control all that isn’t in your control. It’s as simple as that!
Finding your patience and being rewarded with virtue comes only when you learn to stop trying to control what is inevitable. Things will happen, shit will unfold and all you can try to master is your patience and your attitude towards the outcome. It becomes your virtue because you’ve allowed yourself to become limitless, and being limitless is creating new ways to be without boundaries you have set upon yourself with the misconceptions of trying to control the outcomes.
What will be will be, trust the process and enjoy the journey… there’s always a silver lining!

Gypsy wondering

Standard

4B67008C-5FA4-4834-9D03-22A149B6E3EAIt’s the gypsy soul that wonders the earth
To unveil her truth and give it new birth
Like a fleeting moment that’s come to past
A realisation, a test in time, the lesson learnt has come at last
Oh my gypsy soul how you try to seek
Sometimes life can seem so bleak
Be kind to yourself and harvest your gains
A little shaken up, you’ll get through this pain
Letting go of all that has hurt you before
Given over to a new day and evolving even more
Of the risk’s one must take in order to overcome
All the things that were once said and the things that were done
Vulnerability can truly shake you to the core
But unless you’re willing to let down your guard, you’ll never know what’s behind the door
Gypsy soul, keep it honest, keep it real and keep it pure
Come what may when you explore
Deep within you there always laid a yearning
It’s what keeps your soul alive and has you returning
A love that you have, it’s that which keeps the flames of virtue burning…
