A birthing in its own right

This new life

Some are rushed,

Others slowly come.

I’m in the waiting phase,

When all around me seems

To flow, faster

While I am slowly being sailed

Along, by forces I can’t quite see.

I know I’ll get there,

Just waiting, moving slowly

Is difficult.

Until the moment when

You stop looking at the prize,

Take your view away from the summit,

Look at the ground below

Your feet, look at what is

Directly surrounding you,

Take joy in where you are.

Enjoy the steps,

Enjoy the ride,

Remove the focus from the end,

That’s how you miss life,

There will always be a higher summit,

Always another end.

Lat each step slowly unfold,

You’ll be surprised when

You realize there is no end,

No summit, other than the one you stand on

In the present moment. 


Waiting for what you know to be true in your heart can be the most difficult thing in the world. Patience is not always easy, and yet one of the most important things to be cultivated within oneself. I find the best way to deal with a situation where I find patience is lacking is to take a deep breath and remember that a mountain is climbed by placing one foot in front of the other and repeating the process numerous times.

What helps when you are feeling impatient?
