The importance of patience is something I learned long ago – things take time to come to fruition on planet Earth, no matter how frustrating that may be at times. Recently, I found a quote that helped me understand this in a different way. Here it is:

“The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit.” ~ Fabienne Fredrickson

This quote ties the concept of patience – waiting – to Nature. Nature knows exactly what she is doing and does it well enough for us to be able to survive on this planet. (By ‘us’ I mean all living things.)

I have discovered that life works best when I follow the ways of Nature.
