Patience & Flexibility

Patience is to wait calmly for someone or something. It requires us to be calm and appreciate that things are done well take time. Patience requires that we give up wanting to control everything and are willing to wait until someone completes what they're doing or something runs its course.


Flexibility is the willingness to be understanding and change plans when necessary; to understand that things do not always go our way.


Enjoy the links below to watch and listen to books about patience and flexibility.
