Though our world teaches us that immediate action is success and conviction, I find that to be a false illusion. Reactive responses are filled with fear and uncertainty and leads to more mishaps if time isn’t accepted to absorb what is and determine where we stand.
In times when accomplishments rush our way, it’s easy to forget that that too will pass because we’re ready to experience more. When met with conflict in the midst of success, it’s easy to forget progress and worry about what we didn’t anticipate. Sometimes, the small storm clouds our thoughts, and we resort to passing our fears onto others because our disappointment is too great.
Silence is often interpreted as an inaction, but it is a different form of action that requires patience and perseverance to accomplish. Much observation is required to succeed in creating a full picture and it’s story to completion will present a success that is long-lasting and full of value.
When met with unexpected challenges in life, don’t depend on immediacy to accomplish success. Despite what we may know, we must accept that we are intertwined in various processes that make life whole. We don’t always know which process is flowing, but we can choose to slow down and observe before moving forward. We never fully know what will come about and it is our faith that sustains us to completion.
