Allow me to be blunt…. 

There’s a place for waiting in life, but not all the time. When you know you have done all that is required of you and the outcome is out of your hands, then you can practice patience.

Patience isn’t sitting on your hands and waiting for manna to fall from heaven. The time for that is past. You can’t sit back and wait for things to be perfect. You can’t claim to wait just because you’re afraid. You can’t claim to wait because you are too lazy to go to work, too chicken to step out of your comfort zone. 

There is space for you to wait, and for you to act. May wisdom guide you.
