It never fails! At the peak of my frustration I always think of a baby plant. Yes, a plant. It is my mental symbol that reminds me that some things must be treated like a new house plant. You must plant it in rich soil, water it, trim it, and make sure that it has everything it needs while it grows. You never yell at a plant and demand that it becomes something before it is ready do you? Nope, you basically allow it to grow at its own pace knowing that this is the only way it can reach it’s full potential. This analogy brings me back every time! Ahhh patience, the teacher of life. -FLL
