Tenatience. If this was a ‘real’ word, what would it mean?
The word formed in my mind by allowing the words tenacity and patience to collide. These two words collided for me thanks to the very thought provoking words of the Rev. Earle Barron. My attention was captured by the tractor beam of his message when he said, “You grab a goal … a vision grabs you.”
Tenacity is the holding on … persistence.
Patience is the ability to calmly wait for what is desired.
We become a special person when we can actively wait – persistently move the pieces forward while waiting for the right outcome – holding firm to the steps we know are right even when things seem to be out of logical sequence.
Securely holding the goal because the vision holds you.
Maybe this is tenatience.
