After one helluva week last week, I thought I would start this week off with some positivity and encouragement I saw the following quote and thought it was very fitting for me, especially given my propensity to get emotionally caught up in things I cannot control.
The keys to patience are acceptance and faith. Accept things as they are, and look realistically at the world around you. Have faith in yourself and in the direction you have chosen. – Ralph Marston
Patience is something I struggle with daily (hourly, really). As I’ve expressed numerous times on my blog, I have a hard time accepting things as they are. Especially hate and intolerance – ain’t nobody got time for that! And looking realistically at the world around me is what tends to set me off in the first place. But I hope to approach this week with more acceptance. While I don’t necessarily accept the tomfoolery I see, I accept that I can only change me and how I react to it.
So this week, I am motivated to exhibit more patience and work on what is in my immediate control. I can’t have another week like last week so I’m going to keep my eyes on the prize. Because trust, a sista has plenty to focus on and accomplish!!
What are you motivated to do this week? Do you have a plan on how to get over the clusterfluck of emotion that was last week?
Wishing you a great week!
