Where did patience go? Patience creates beauty, not only in nature but our lives.
In the age of the social patience has all but disappeared. Life seems to be driven now by the next email, text, news feed, or post. Where once we took time to formulate an answer we now reapond instantaneously, often times without truly umderstanding how our words will be interpreted.
We are driven to formulate an opinion of somethimg without taking the time to gather enough information to formulate a real underatanding of what it is we are hearing or seeing. What have we lost by not having patience?
We can send a message around the world in less then a minute. We can talk with some anywhere on our planet instantaneously. And just as fast we can strip away our humanity by not having patience.
It took millions of years to create this landscape. It took hours of waiting for the sky to break and the sunlight to fall on the landscape to capture this image. Imagine what beauty can be found in our lives if we practice a little more patience with our loved ones, family, friends, co-workers, communities. What d we lose by being patient?
