"Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience" -Ralph Waldo Emerson.
This quote is pretty simple and to the point but has a lot to say about our modern lives. In today's society with everything available to us, we have lost the ability to have patience in our own lives. We really should take this to heart and take a more extensive look within our own lives.
The problem with lacking patience is what is replaced with is instant gratification for our needs. We turn to social media to give us that fix instead of addressing the issue at hand. We expect our needs to be instantly solved, and when they are not we go insane.
As you read this, you are probably wondering what this rambling has to do with nature. This has everything to do with nature if we take a step back from technology. Take a breath of the clean air around us and listen to the wind blow through the trees, we will better appreciate nature's true patience.
Is the art of patience lost?
