Patience is a misunderstood concept. It has nothing to do with waiting but everything to do with blossoming.
A flower cannot bloom before it has gone through the process, taken the steps, received nourishment from the soil, water from the rain . . . and felt the warmth of the sun. It is in this interaction, this connection of all these elements that unfolds the beauty of a flower.
Patience is really another word for explaining the process of blossoming.
