Virtue of the Fortnight: Patience

How Do You Practice Patience?

Practicing patience is accepting things you cannot control, like the way other people act, or even an illness or handicap you have to live with. Patience is waiting without complaining. When you are patient, you show gentleness when you or others make mistakes. You set goals and persevere until your goals are won. You picture the end in the beginning. You know that good things take time.


I am patient. I am gentle with others and myself when we make mistakes. I wait calmly. I trust that things will turn out right.
