A Fresh Start – Patience, The Art of Peaceful Living
We grew up hearing the words, “Be patient” only when we reached the point of frustration. So how do we LEARN to be patient before we reach the tipping point? How do we be patient and accept growing old gracefully? This is one you don’t want to miss. Sallie Felton’s guest today is Allan Lokos.
Here are some tidbits of what you’ll learn:
1. What’s the difference between confusing patience with anger suppression?
2. How do we develop patience within ourselves?
3. Is it ever helpful to be reactive in times of stress? Can it help us to survive and thrive?
