In this world of instant gratification with all the technology out there to keep us connected to…well…everything, it’s easy to forget patience. It’s always a good idea to slow down once in a while, and who knows slow better than snails (and the post office, but that‘s beside the point)?
I came across this little guy (or gal, I can’t tell and didn’t ask) on a recent trip to the beach. I sat and watched this little snail for the longest time. I watched it climb over what we would consider tiny ripples in the sand but what he must see as huge sand dunes. It made me think about patience and perseverance. So often in this day and age, if a web page doesn’t load in under five seconds, if the line in the supermarket doesn’t move quickly enough, and if the person on the road ahead isn’t traveling at or even a little over the speed limit, most of us get annoyed. But it definitely pays to be patient. Good things come to those who wait.
Stay patient folks. You’ll be happier and healthier in the long run.
Until next time…
