What can I say? I have to practice extreme patience with my 2 year old son everyday. Toddlers are TRULY amazing!! LMAO

As I am getting older and evolving, I am recognizing that my son is not the only one with whom I need to practice patience. I am learning to extend myself the same grace and courtesy. I am deserving of patience. I am deserving of forgiveness.

One night last week, I was up listening to my dear friend Deborah Bond's album "Compass". She is an incredible singer and songwriter, so it was no surprise that the words to her song "Patience" hit me so hard that I was inspired to create this remix. Thank you Debo.

Hope you enjoy!

[Verse ]

I need a little patience when myself
When I try
To speed around what’s right in front of me

I need a little patience with myself
I know how the story goes
The cards have been dealt

Constantly down to take the ride
Maybe its time that I catch my breath for a while


Just take it slow
You’re getting older
You better breathe
Maybe if I had a little patience
With myself

[Verse 2]

I should know by now the pacing of my life
Why do I try
To believe things will come to me quickly

I’ve learned many times before that things
That lanes can take a left turn
And before you know you’re down
And you’re lying on the ground

Are you sure you wanna take that ride?
Maybe its now that you put those things aside


Just take it slow
You’re getting older
You better breathe
Maybe if you had a little patience
With yourself

And maybe if you take a moment to stop
Take a look around what will you find
Places, destinations, and sings
Say that you’ve arrived


Maybe if I took these days
To embrace the little space
Time with myself
Maybe if I had a little patience with myself

Badeee badaaah buh buh buh…
