Philosophy : Patience and Happiness Are Not the Same

    Shares

I work at home; and often feel as if I live in the Dark Ages. A typical “happy day” at my house? Wake up. On my laptop from sun up to sun down. In between, break for lunch. While chowing down, I decided to make one more attempt at trying to watch the news online free. Surfed the Internet for about ten minutes and gave up.

● So what came next?

Next I decided to play one of my favorite games to amuse myself. What game is that you ask? Sometimes I type a phrase into the search engine just to see what pops out!

The phrase for the search query was:

“I don’t have the patience to find out what’s happening now!”

The results included a link to a great article.

Patience Is a Virtue but Don’t Wait to Be Happy by Hannah Eagle

Love it!! The quote or title, I mean. The article was kind of sad, but a real life incident and the writer, Hannah Eagle, conveyed her thoughts quite well.

The website is called Tiny Buddha and the site’s tagline is “Simple wisdom for complex lives.”

As one thing leads to another, my husband was in the kitchen preparing his midday meal, so I put a question to him:

* “If patience is a virtue, then what is happiness?”

♦ ♦ ♦

My spouse is my in-house wisdom and enlightenment free resource.

I was very satisfied with his response.

No I am not going to write out his answer.

♦ Instead Mr. or Ms. Reader, the question is for you to ponder.

* Patience is to virtue, as happiness is to ______________.

How would you fill in that blank?

    I think what you are saying is live life today, while you are using patience to deal with your problems, still enjoy the happiness the day has to offer.
