Keep Your Patience, Enjoy the Summer
The kids are out of school - and now all that freedom they longed for is becoming boring. So, what do kids do? They squabble with each other!
That can turn make the most patient and loving parent into a jumble of ragged nerves - apt to explode at any time. And no parent wants to yell at the kids. It just happens sometimes when the pressure gets to be "too much" and patience flies out the window.
The good news is, Bach Flower Essences has a remedy. The Bach flower "Impatiens" is just the thing - for both the kids and the frazzled parent. A couple of drops under the tongue for each of you, and you'll soon find your nerves, and your patience, returning to normal.
As the name suggests, Impatiens is the essence of patience. It is used most for people who are generally impatient - those who are quick-witted and move at a fast pace. These are the folks that, when forced to supervise others, generally want to just push the other person out of the way and do the job themselves because they can do it faster and better.
Individuals who have the Impatiens personality should not be forced into that position, but instead should work alone - where they can move at their own pace, uninhibited by others who might do a fine job, but not move as quickly. Unfortunately, we sometimes have to do tasks that don't fit our personalities, and in that case this Bach Flower Essence comes to the rescue.
Let yourself enjoy having the kids out of school... with a little help from Impatiens.
