If I had a nickle every time someone told me that they weren’t losing weight fast enough, or that they weren’t manifesting their dreams soon enough, or they weren’t being who they are not yet but want to be today not tomorrow, I’d have a million nickles, no exaggeration. (Maybe, with inflation ‘n all, I ought to change that nickle to a dollar and make some real money, hey?…I digress.)
Point being: If you are inching your way (weigh) toward your goals, if you are pointed in the right direction, you will get where you are going fast enough. Which is why I chose the word patience as this week’s quotable #oneWord to live by.
