Allow things to ripen.

We tend to prefer instant gratification. We want things now, or certainly at least when we expect them to occur. Waiting isn’t something we wish to do.

And yet waiting usually serves a purpose. It helps us to be ready to receive the fullness of what’s coming. If we had a baby the day after conception, we wouldn’t be emotionally and physically prepared to raise a child. The gestational period allows us to grow into our new role.

Today’s message advises me that patience with the unfolding of events is in my favor. When I learn to allow things to expand in their own chosen time, I let them unlock their best possible potential.

Please reflect and share. Are you willing to allow life to open itself to you at its own pace?
