What a hugely intriguing post (to me at least.)
Is patience a person or do you mean the attribute?
It is the attribute Beth37, and it is confronting it in a way, like in a conversation, through a letter with the "dear" part . . .
I mean it's a very deep quote the more you dwell on it.
Being patient doesn't actually offer hope as much as the fact that in being patient, you have actually decided not to give up on hope.
However, yes, it could take hope away in the fact that by making the decision to be patient, that means you do not actually have what it is you're looking for and could always be on the verge of losing patience thereby immediately losing hope.
So the answer must be that in order to have hope, you must never give up on patience. Which is an act of patience itself.
Wow, did you just explain it all for me Beth37? Thank you! Yes. In that case.
I was just going off what you wrote. lol
You're Socrates, I'm Plato.
You did look into it deeply, and your understanding of it, Beth37, is actually more than what I intend to say.
Well I've been told I think too much.
Tell me what spin you were putting on it... what was on your mind when you wrote it?
Socrates? To that level? That made me smile really, Beth37. I like your question (which by the way will result to more possible answers in your mind). It is about a particular task you are confident about doing and getting better at it in time (that's why there's hope), but then along the way, circumstances and people somehow end that hope quite too soon, that confidence you are molding patiently in your mind and heart. And in your being patient in what's happening and with the nature of the people around you, you lose that possibility of finishing that pursued task.
So then the answer would be not to allow others to decide what you will put your hope in.
You don't have to be the master of your destiny to be the captain of your boat. If your crew is mutinous, throw them off the ship.

So I decided to undertake the hub challenge and write 30 hubs in 30 days. After 14 hubs (and bronchitis) I realized that the hubs that took longer to create got better ratings, so I decided to stop the hub challenge. I was getting a bit frustrated. I had a decent amount of traffic...

Do you think patience reflects an artificial attitude?We do admonish patience and demonstrate the same. Sometimes I feel that the attitude adopted is an artificial one, do you feel the same or what?
