Mindful Monday - Patience

by President Uchtdorf

The passage on patience that spoke to me the most was the following:
Patience is "far more than simply waiting for something to happen--patience require[s] actively working toward worthwhile goals and not getting discouraged when results [don't] appear instantly or without effort.

"There is an important concept here: patience is not passive resignation, nor is it failing to act because of our fears. Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and doing all that we can--working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!" (Ensign, May 2010, 56-59).

Happiness quote is great and I daily pray for that kind of patience - I can get pretty impatient when I am driving, waiting in lines, and on and on!:0)

I think ENDURING is a key word here
many things refer to enduring
patience and enduring --never thought of that but it is true cause patience is TOTALLY enduring to the extent of waiting
for what we want
I am rambling and making no sense
