It has been a while since I last wrote on my blog. It has been a crazy time. Have you ever found yourself in a place you never expected to find yourself? Has life ever collided with your expectations and left you limping around wondering what just happened. Take heart,the L-RD is close to the broken-hearted and supports, strengthens and is near to those who are crushed in spirit. He promised to never leave us or forsake us. The real question is DO I really believe that His word is true in my everyday situation? I have learned to spend time with G-D just based on HIS word and worshipping him and not on the devotionals or thoughts of others. I have developed my relationship with HIM. I have had to move several times and gone through things I never thought possible. It is sort of ironic that the next principle in being self-taught happens to be patience. I think you have waited long enough! SO here they are :
- Patience: Depending on the complexity of a topic, Learning something new can take a long time. It can be frustrating to grapple with new terminologies, new models, and apparently irrelevant information while wondering how this all applies to what you actually want to do. This is where learning to exercise patience is vital. (well, aside from every human relationship you will ever have. 🙂 ) When you are the teacher, there is no one else to decide and control the the flow of information, to make sure you move from basic knowledge to expertise.
- Diligence: constant and earnest effort to accomplish what is undertaken; persistent exertion of body or mind. You must be willing to slam shut the door on self-pity and decide that you will succeed. Be persistent in refusing to be bitter. be stubbornly determined to accomplish it and it won’t be as hard if you remove the excuse of giving up. Quitting is not an option if you want to be successful at learning and being self-taught or frankly at life itself.
Enjoy your weekend Friends! L’Shana Tovah! Happy New Year!
