I’m finally getting back into the swing of things. I took a much needed blogging break during the month of December and the first of January. Partly because life was super busy and partly because I didn’t feel very creative. I felt a little sad and relieved that I didn’t HAVE to create content. No pressure. I enjoy blogging more when the creativity flows naturally. It just feels right.
As time passed I started to get a little worried. I had topics to blog about but the words were just not there. I didn’t want to force it, in reality I couldn’t force it. I realized that I had to be patient with myself. I gave myself grace.
Patience is something that I have always struggled with. I use to pray for patience until someone brought it to my attention that in order for God to grant me patience I would have to be in situations that required….you guessed it patience.
One way that I have been dealing with my lack of patience is with plants. Thanks to Carmeon Hamilton I have more plants in my home than ever before AND I’m keeping them alive (insert a praise dance here).
The first plant I bought last year didn’t make it because I was over watering it. I was trying to rush the process. I have since learned to take my time with my plants, giving them what they need when they need it. I have actually been able to propagate clippings from another plant. I can’t make them grow faster but I can make sure that they are healthy. They have to take their time and I have to let them.
Who or what is teaching you patience?
