A lot can be said about this single word, but I don’t want you to lose your patience going through an endless ramble of useless words. So, I decided to share a short quote I came across that I think sums it up perfectly.
Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.
– Joyce Meyer
And here’s a few extra that I just could not leave out…
No road is too long for him who advances slowly and does not hurry, and no attainment is beyond his reach who equips himself with patience to achieve it.
– Jean de la Bruyere
Patience is the ability to count down before you blast off.
All men commend patience, although few are willing to practice it.
– Thomas a Kempis
If you know any other quotes worth sharing, I would love to read them so please feel free to comment them down below.
“You aren’t good enough!”
“You’re a fool for thinking you could be tough!”
“You’re going to slip and fall and never be able to get back up!”
So much noise,
You wish it would just all stop.
If only you had a remote with buttons to lower the volume,
Or better still mute everything up.
You could walk away to be in a more silent place,
Far from all these things being said.
However, these words echo,
Even in an empty room.
Have you forgotten?
You welcomed them in,
And here they will remain,
Embedded in your head,
Until you yourself find the courage,
And discard of them for good.
Only then will you see change,
And surely you’ll find your true happiness again.
We acted out things a lot,
Whether for fun,
Or to emphasis a point.
Remember whenever we were told a secret,
Or when we just needed to be quiet,
We would “Zip” our mouth,
“Lock it” at the side,
And “throw the key away”.
It honestly helped,
And it was taken so seriously.
Surely we’re not kids anymore,
However it truly would make a difference if people still knew how to just be quiet.
Even a second of silence can make a difference,
Whether it’s to listen to a point,
Or rethink whatever you’re planning to say.
Don’t forget your childhood lessons,
Yeah they were fun,
But now they could save you from a lot of trouble.
You saw me from afar,
Didn’t utter a single word,
Scanning with your eyes.
Based on your perception,
A decision was made,
And a label was placed.
Without getting to know me first.
Reminder: Be careful of the labels you place, be wise and remember to never judge a book by its cover.
Everyday is a new beginning,
Everyday is a brand new chance,
Everyday is the perfect time to shine.
Everyday should be a day for improvements,
A day to move forward,
To find your light,
To conquer your fears,
To love more,
To care more,
To be the best you can ever be.
Don’t hold yourself back or give up because one day you’ll wake up and love and smile back at your familiar stranger.
Happy Birthday/Anniversary to me! ClumsyandSilly has turned 1 today (BD: 20/03/2016)
Thank you to all my amazing family and all my wonderful visitors. Without you ClumsyandSilly wouldn’t be celebrating today! I love you all ❤️
On this special occassion: Here’s the birth of ClumsyandSilly
I heard you’ve had a rough night, and it all just became too much. I’m so sorry you were alone, feeling so down. If I had the chance I would’ve come right over. With a cup of coffee in each of our hands, I would’ve sat and listened till the final thought spilled out of your mind.
I don’t know what it is you’re going through and I don’t know how much of a struggle everything has been. I just want you to know I’m here if you ever need. Don’t ever hesitate to drop by and say “I just need you to listen to everything I’ve got to say.”
I’m all ears and will try my best to be available in every single way. If not, I apologise life is probably getting in the way but you can trust that I’ll get back to you as soon as I can, I won’t delay.
For now my words of opinion and advice are scattered around in this blog, feel free to have a read until I come back.
The final thing I want to leave you with for now is, figure out the pattern that leaves you feeling down, break it and make it one that elicits positive feelings of happiness and joy.
Stay strong, it’s okay to have a bad day. Just remember to get back up and find your happy path again. 💕
Life can be tough,
No doubt about it,
Each one of us going through our own struggles,
Our own hardships and challenges.
People often say,
“You’ll never understand what I’m going through”,
Yes, you’re probably right,
But you too don’t know what they’re going through.
No one has a worry free perfect life,
We all struggle,
We are all fighting our own battles,
The only difference is how we cope and carry on.
So when things get tough get up,
jiggle around abit,
Let loose and relax,
Then get back to your battle with a clear and determined mind.
Remember you’re not alone.
Stay strong. Fight smarter not harder.
