The Power of Patience How This Old-Fashioned Virtue Can Improve Your Life by M.J. Ryan from Mango Publishing. We expect everything to happen instantaneously and become aggravated when it doesn’t. The result is that we feel frantic and rushed, stressed, and unhappy most of the time. Not to mention how the people around us feel.
In this book, M.J. Ryan teaches us how to slow the rush and reclaim the forgotten virtue of patience on a daily basis. When we practice patience we make better decisions and feel better about ourselves. As a co-creator of the bestselling Random Acts of Kindness books, and author of Attitudes of Gratitude, M.J. Ryan discovered that the classic virtues have an enduring power to bring light and love into our lives.
With The Power of Patience, she shares what she has learned about the gifts that this old-fashioned quality can bestow, the attitudes that foster a patient outlook, and the practical tools that help us to respond patiently in any given moment.
The Power of Patience calls on us to reclaim our time, our priorities, and our ability to respond to life with a firmly grounded sense of who we are. It is the best gift, we soon learn, that we can give ourselves.
My Opinion: I enjoyed this book as it is hard to wait for things and I used to be more patient than I am now. This helped me learn how to get back to whom I used to be and stay calm, relaxed, and know it is ok to have to wait as it will all work out in the end. I think living in a society of wanting and getting things right now has made you lose sight of the power of patience.
