Nature’s Patience

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet, author

At the Writers’ conference I just attended I heard many stories that demonstrated patience: the author who sent query letters to 136 agents before getting a “yes”, the Oscar winning screenwriter who spent over 10 years in the trenches writing script after script before coming up with “the one,” the undaunted poet who has written poetry for years but has yet to be published.

If you are in a season of hibernation, feeling dark, wanting to stay under your covers, be patient with yourself and trust that your spring is coming soon.

Affirmation: I take my clues from nature.

Coaching question: What season are you in? What will help you have patience with your seasonal process?
