…something my mom always said to me when I was whining as a child…not sure I ever understood, not sure about the expression now…I feel like it’s lacking something. 🙂
But I do understand now how incredibly important patience really truly is. Even when one wishes things to be different than they are, move faster than they are moving, or occur in a different order. Would I have understood better if my mom would have quoted what’s below? Probably not, but here are some of my current favs.
I will ALWAYS be under construction. I’ll ALWAYS be practicing patience as a virtue.
Breathe in LET, breathe out GO.

People. People important to you, people unimportant to you cross your life, touch it with love or carelessness and move on. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of relief and wonder why you ever came into contact with them. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of remorse and wonder why they had to go away and leave such a gaping hole. Children leave parents, parent leave friends. Acquaintances move on. Friends love and move on. You think of the many who have moved into your hazy memory. You look on those present and wonder.
I believe this is all part of a master plan. People move in and out of our lives, and each leaves his mark on the other. You find you are made up of bits and pieces of all who ever touched your life, and you are more because of it, and you would be less if they had not touched you.
So far this is who I know that I am...
I am a Spanish teacher (lucky enough to teach grade K-8!) living in the Chicago area. I am a yoga alliance registered and certified yoga instructor. I am pursuing MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) certification and simply happy to be alive to write this and share with others.
