Don’t jump the gun. Practice patience throughout the day. Hold back what seeks to burst out of you until you are sure it is right. Sometimes a moment’s pause is all that is needed to thwart a lifetime of pain. Sometimes a few extra breaths are the answer to a moment of panic or anxiety. Sometimes just sitting still is the best solution to an urge to get up and run. In quiet patient waiting, things become clearer, things change, and a new perspective has the opportunity to reveal itself. Take a moment. Breathe. And then breathe again. Then decide a course of action. In patient waiting, let your heart decide.
