# 49 of reflections It's Automatic

It’s automatic
By Mary K. Mennenga

Acts of self-preservation are automatic
Any time the mind can’t handle
What’s happening or going to happen!
It will block that memory it’s still there waiting
Until the tools are in place to handle it
Patience is not automatic nor is it something a person is born with
Its learned behavior earned over time
Patience with one’s self is hardest
That has been my experience so far

All the living and learning that’s being done
Along with the baggage chosen to carry with you
Is what made you the person you are today
Laying the framework to become
The person you want to be

Silver lining, Thank you so much, patience is a tough one to write about as well as to take the time to learn! Don't think I'm done learning yet!
Have a great weekend.;-)mkm
