Patience is a virtue… Whenever people say that to me I never even take a second of my time, to think about it. But now that I have taken a moment… it makes no sense to me. And I try to look for some answers about exactly what a virtue is and it still is fuzzy, even on the internet. There has to be a simpler way to define patience than just saying that is a virtue. Simply put, in the dictionary, a virtue is defined as being good. So to be good you have to be good at waiting? Man sometimes waiting blows!
There is more than one kind of patience. Being patient isn’t just about anticipating an upcoming vacation or waiting for the big birthday to come up (I still got about 8 months) Hah, jokes! The type of patience that makes you the best is patience through your trials and tribulations. There is room for patience in every person’s life, no matter what. That means, not every day is going to be a fairytale where a prince and princess gets married and everyone runs around giving each other foot massages. Let’s get real!
Whenever a bad day hits you can let it knock you down or you can stand and fight. By being patient you can accomplish this. Waiting through those days, having an undying faith in Christ, will get you through. You can fight back at life. And I promise if you stand on that firm foundation of Christ, you will survive to see the good days. And you won’t want to be so down to miss those days. Life can be a joy if you let it! As Miss Miley Cyrus would have us know: “It’s The Climb!”
What a great message that this teen Pop star has let us all know the journey will be tough, but you can make it. I have faith in you.

There is one common aneurism that strikes true in every man. Anger.
That feeling that leaves you in despair. You just have to fight back and let everyone know what you are feeling. Like the inferno, you explode all of your burning coals and melt everyone to the ground. Anger.
But the deal is, you don’t have to let your inferno explode. There is nothing controlling you to “Make You” angry. Its just that nagging feeling of: if I don’t explode right now then I will die. That is a lie. Just give it time, it will cool off. You don’t have to let it show. Keep it inside. Have an intervention with your feelings. What will be the dominant emotion for you?
If Its Anger… keep me the HECK away from you. I want to be in a world full of happy nice people that don’t get mad when something goes a wrong. Find it within your soul to make happiness the dominant feeling. ..
