Event Description

If you look up the word “patience” …oh wait, you don’t have time to look up words, right? Who has the patience to do that anymore?? Well, if you did decide to look it up, here’s what you’d find: “the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.”

Our next step should probably be to look up the word “delay,” as that particular word’s definition seems to have changed as far as the length of time it might indicate. Considering it takes just 2.45 seconds to load a typical web page and just a few more than that to send a text, it’s not surprising that anything in the range of 10 seconds has us huffing and puffing about why it’s taking so long. Google has even found that a web page on a mobile device takes a “jarring” 7 seconds to load – gasp!

Add to that the many other things that might be testing our patience (running late, boredom, doing too many things, health issues, relationship irritants, and any number of life’s other stressors), and it shouldn’t really surprise us that it’s a rare person who moves through each day in a warm, fuzzy blanket of patience.

Constant impatience, though, can cause other issues for us. Allowing our impatience to reign supreme, we can damage relationships, make poor decisions, say things we regret, DO things we regret, contribute to our own health problems, and the list goes on. I think you’ll agree that those are all pretty good reasons to develop our patience!
