I’m devoting this Monday to meditation, reflection and devotion to submission. I hope to select topics that will get you thinking differently about some part of your life or submission and then just maybe grow a little bit further. If you have ideas for topics that might work for a Meditation Monday, please email me.
I am not a patient person. I've always wanted immediate solutions, instant gratification and quick responses. Since being with Master I have had to learn patience. It's a hard process, to be sure. I've had ten years practice and I've learned a few things about patience that make my service to him so much smoother, more elegant and less stressful. Let's see if what I've learned about patience can help you connect with your own personal submissive style in this meditation.
Throughout my submissive life I've found that patience plays an important role. No matter how good or bad I am at it, I can consistently go back to the need and usefulness of patience. Others could argue that focus and intent is just as important but if I don't have patience, then focus and intent are just going to fall away. So for me, and hopefully for you too, patience is an important characteristic to have.
Look at how patience works if you are single. Being single can be difficult if you don't have patience to see it as a time for personal change, for dating and for exploring yourself. There's no reason to rush into a relationship if you let patience work for you. Trust me, I know you are all yelling at your screens right now that waiting, sucks monkey balls! Yes, yes it does, but trust me when I say that it is so worth it.
Then, you've entered a relationship, it's still very young and you don't really know much about each other. Having patience to let the relationship unfold slowly. Then, as you learn new things you should use patience because you won't be perfect right away and you will make mistakes. Patience will help you take it in stride and grow further than you could ever think.
And lastly, if the relationship has to end, having patience to allow yourself to recover, to grieve, to learn from it and to move forward is certainly going to be a healing process.
These are just a few of the ways patience can help you develop a relationship with yourself and your partner.
But there's so much more to patience, isn't there? Take some time today to reflect on how patience works for you, whether it is something you still need to learn or that you savor the moment with. How has patience taught you to be a better submissive? Can you think of a moment where you are grateful for the patience you showed?
