A long time ago, a somewhat casual acquaintance shared this with me ... and while I am not lending my personal opinion to the words that will follow, I wanted to share it with you.
The concept behind the article is to share gifts that don't necessarily cost a dime ... but are worth their weight in gold.
THE GIFTS OF WAITING
Standing in line, waiting for the doctor, sitting in traffic do not sound like presents, but if we look closely at them we can see the gifts that waiting gives to us.
THE GIFT OF DOWNTIME
THE GIFT OF PATIENCE
"No greater thing is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig, I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen." –Epictetus
THE GIFT OF THE PRESENT MOMENT
"Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed." –Coreta Kent
THE GIFT OF COMPASSION AND HUMILITY
"Humility is attentive patience." –Simone Weil6. Leave 10 minutes early for everything.
