Patience is a Virtue

I wanted to start my week off on a good note by creating something that required tons of patience as stated in my last post “Patience for Petaling!”  Now that is all said and done, I find myself sitting thinking about the word: Patience, what it really means and am I somewhat an impatient person. I’m constantly asking myself ” If I’m doing a great job at work, being loyal to my bosses and completing tasks, WHY am I not seeing results?” Results, such as a pay raise and are other designers REALLY recognizing my work??

Where do I stand as an artist in the eyes of my fellow floral designers ?

I’m a go-getter and know things won’t be handed to me on a silver platter but sometimes feel impatient when things don’t go my way or how I think they should.


Sometimes I feel I’m putting in so much work in so little time with every ounce of passion that is in me and never saying no when others would.

I’ve got all the patience in the world when it comes to floral designs but feel like I work so hard and am not getting the accreditation I should. When will I be recognized for all my hard work ?

Perhaps I should remember a quote I once read, ” Do not wonder why thing are taking so long. In fact everything is rolling out exactly as it needs to, using not a minute more than Perfection requires. Rest easy as be at peace. Life is working it’s magic , even as you take your very next breath.” – Neale Donald Walsch

Ok I’m done my little rant. Moral of the story : Be patient in all aspects of life, in and outside the world of design and take life as it comes.
