Feeling in a rush? Dig into this lesson on patience.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“#SoulcareSunday Reminder – Our growth, full bloom, and greatness take time💜 Don’t rush it 💜”— Alicia Keys
Nature will always be our greatest teacher, especially when it comes to patience.
During a much-deserved rest on her AK tour, Alicia stopped to bear witness to one of nature’s most wondrous creations: trees. Her realization? Trees teach us the power of taking our time. Their deep roots and flourishing leaves are the results of long cycles of change and growth. Trees become marvels —not because they have surpassed the restraints of time, but because they have stood the test of time.
Greatness is just patience in a different form. It comes to us when we least expect it because greatness is a curation of tiny moments, lessons, and seasons in our lives. At times we lay bare and other times we bear fruit; every phase is unique and necessary to our journey.
If you find yourself looking for a “quick fix” or shortcut to greatness, remember the marvels of trees: The patience they require, and the beauty they possess. Give yourself that time to be in full bloom and reach your highest potential.
