The Law of Patience and Reward: True joy comes from doing what you are supposed to do and knowing that the reward will come in its own time. (This one is really difficult because I need to work on being patient but if I keep the reward idea in mind, I can do it….. I think.)
I have lived law #11, the law of patience and reward, this month and it has been a bit trying for me, to say the least. I think, though, that I learned a lot from this law about life and how some days just suck and others bring a reward.
My month went like this:
One holistic fair with poor sales ; another holistic fair with great sales.
Trade in two year old car (under duress); new car rear-ended on day 4 of ownership but I at least I was not injured.
Near pneumonia diagnosed and felt awful; cured in five days with heavy duty drugs.
Work to be done by others; I had to step in and complete the project because others dropped the ball.
I could go on but you get the picture. My patience was tried on four occasions and yet a bit of patience brought me a reward, as I had hoped. I am an example how this law really works. Life happens and you just have to deal with it. Just take a deep breath, curse a bit, scream, or drink, and things just might work out for you, too.
My true joy came from being patient and knowing that the reward would come in its own time as it did.
Now if I can just get that winning lottery ticket…….
