Affirmations for Patience

by GG of Peace, Love and Pretty Things

We’re used to getting our way.
We don’t want to be left behind.
We don’t like being uncomfortable.
We don’t want to end up alone.
We want more money or status.
We feel pressed for time.

We think that things or situations can make us happy.

We are waiting for others to do or be something different.

These are some of the things that make us impatient.

These thoughts swirl around in our minds: “I just can’t wait until….” or “I’ll be happy when…” or “I wish this person would just grow up and …” We want what we want and we want it now.

Do you feel like you’re never satisfied? Do you look around and only see what’s wrong or what’s missing? Well, it’s time to change your perspective.

Learning to be patient can help you in every aspect of your life. Spiritually, emotionally and even physically, we all benefit from accepting the present moment — no matter how uncomfortable we think it is.

Consider the following affirmations to help you increase your patience and develop a healthy sense of tolerance:

I am supposed to be right here, right now.

I will be patient with myself and therefore increase my patience with others.

I will avoid the urge to hurry and hasten my way through life.

I will be quiet, breathe deeply and listen when I feel frustrated and impatient.

I will not base my happiness on the speediness of a particular outcome.

I will appreciate what every moment has to offer; not only when things are going my way.

How do you check yourself when you’re feeling impatient with yourself or someone else?

    I love this post ! And I totally agree with fabwtalk you must be acceptive of the things going on no matter how big or how small and when you find yourself feeling impatient you just have to take a step back, breathe deeply, and smile .

    Excellent post! I remind myself to remember these things everyday. It really helps to calm you down when you are having a moment, plus you'll be much more relaxed and happy. Simply put, you must learn to accept the things you can't change and just live in the now.

    What a wonderful way to start off this Thursday. Thanks for this inspiring post. I particularly love this: I will be quiet, breathe deeply and listen when I feel frustrated and impatient. I am planning on practicing this affirmation all day today.
