Growing up, I used to silently hate my mum telling me to be patient. I HATED that word. 20 years later I, realise what she meant.
Patience isn’t passively waiting. Patience is practicing, training, and working your ass off, whilst you wait. It’s staying ready for the moment you want, even, and especially, when that moment looks far off.
Family photography is probably my favourite reminder of this. Screaming kids. Wait. Parents in a rush. Wait. Siblings hate each other. Wait. Sun comes out. Wait. Baby stops crying. Wait. Mum walks over. Wait. They make each other laugh. Annnnnd shoot.
