Everything in its own time

Patience is not passive resignation, nor is it failing to act because of our fears. Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and doing all that we can—working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!  — Dieter F. Uchtdorf

I think one of the most difficult things to remember is that storytelling is an act of patience. Some stories rush through us on to the page with electric results. Other stories require time and effort to sculpt it to own vision. Either version requires us to keep working and not give up.

Patience is a lesson that I have to learn over and over, especially when it comes to writing.  The key to making patience work is to keep momentum.  Some days I might move forward millimeter by millimeter, some days by leaps and bounds.  Patience is a commitment to my goals and dreams.

Everything happens in its own time, but it won’t happen unless I am working towards it.
