Patience is an ultimate virtue. Sadly, a lot of us don't have it. We don't have a lot of patience for people, for our goals, for our jobs, etc. We don't have patience for anything. We want things now at an instant. We would like to skip all the parts that we "feel" are irrelevant to us and get to the meat!! To get to the thing that we most want to sink our teeth in to. It's sad how irritable people can be due to this. It is sad that we don't like to see things through because we aren't getting there fast enough. It's juts sad....
By definition, Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without becoming annoyed or upset; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Now that you've read it, stop and think about it. I'll give you a minute.... Ok, does this definition applies to you? Does this definition even sound like the person you are? We can't even endure nowadays. I am not exempt from this post. I falter myself but it is just sad at what I see nowadays. Folks getting upset that their food isn't being made fast enough when they are the last one in line. People who kill others when a person makes them upset and ruin their lives. I have met so many college students who have deferred from a dream that was attainable but felt the road was too long to get there. What is the rush if this will ultimately make you happy in life? I see people who quit on great relationships because things are not moving fast enough for them. They put pressure on others to be in a shotgun relationship that doesn't work out because they weren't patient enough to understand who that person really was from the beginning. People who aren't patient at their jobs. Sometimes make a dumb decision and quit because they aren't being moved fats enough into a higher position. You've only been there 3 months. What have you really accomplished?!?! People who can't be patient in their times of trouble and make a bad decision to alleviate their problem. Their plan only leads them to further destruction in their lives. If I'm without a job, I'm not going to rob someone. I would be a male escort before that happens. Patience is key in life. We are guaranteed to hit at least one roadblock in life or deal with someone who is a roadblock to our progression...how will you handle it?? Are you able to endure?? Are you able to see the problem through??? "One moment of patience may ward off great disaster. One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life."....thanks for taking a look into My Thoughts

So I had to address this nonsense. I have seen a lot of people who have now called Tiger a "nigga." All I can say to you people is FUCK YOU. Tiger woods is a man just like the rest of you. I will not break into Bible to put shame to your sorry bastards. Half of the people who have labeled Tiger Woods a nigga have more than likely had a moment of infidelity one time or another.
When did shortcomings constitute being a nigga? If this is the case, is it OK to point the finger at every black person with a shortcoming now and call them a nigga? I know half of you would hate it if someone outside your race called you a nigga at all of your shortcomings.
Why are we doing it to ourselves? Why are we degrading each other with that word? I would hope everyone learns to grow up and think about what they are saying before they open their mouths. Especially if the term of endearment is being passed in our own race....thank you for taking a look in to My Thoughts...
