I remember at one point in my life listening to talks on patience every day for months. I was trying to drill the principle of patience into my head. I wanted to develop the gift of patience and I was hoping to speed up the process. It didn’t seem to help. I was frustrated with my slow brain. “All people are of great worth Hank, be patient with all of them!”

It was a long time before I saw that I actually was learning to be patient without seeing it. I had wanted to be patient with everyone without being patient with myself. When I finally saw myself as valuable enough as the others I wanted to be patient with, I knew I had taken a giant leap towards my goal.
