They say that learning is a lifelong journey for many things.
For me, that includes believing and trusting another person with major undertakings of my life.
By the trick of circumstances, I grew up to be an independent, self reliant and autonomous person. It helped me to progress fast on my own.
Finally switching to a slower mode of letting someone else do what I want to achieve for me, takes determination and willpower too. Because the temptation to stop waiting and being patient, and just do it myself, is always there. Patience and faith takes practice.
Too bad I live in the city. If I live by the ocean, then I would go sit at the beach and watch the sunset to exercise patience. I miss Venice Beach in Los Angeles. The Santa Monica pier is a bit too cold for me to stay for hours although it is more accessible.
