". . .proves that the ability to be patient is the mark of wisdom as well as the cause for happiness, and offers straightforward, believable instructions for developing that ability." --Sylvia Boorstein, author ofHappiness Is an Inside JobIt has become the norm in our everyday busy lives: we expect everything to happen instantaneously and become instantly aggravated when it doesn't. The result is that we can feel frantic and rushed, stressed and unhappy nearly all the time. Not to mention how the people around us feel.InThe Power of Patience, M. J. Ryan teaches us how to slow the rush and reclaim the forgotten virtue of patience on a daily basis. She shows how doing so allows us to make better decisions and to feel better about ourselves every day.As a co-creator of the bestsellingRandom Acts of Kindnessbooks, and author ofAttitudes of Gratitude, M.J. Ryan discovered that the classic virtues have enduring power to bring light and love into our lives. WithThe Power of Patience, she shares what she has learned about the gifts that this old-fashioned quality can bestow, the attitudes that foster a patient outlook, and the practical tools that help us to respond patiently in any given moment.The Power of Patiencecalls on us to reclaim our time, our priorities, and our ability to respond to life with a firmly grounded sense of who we are. It is the best gift, we soon learn, that we can give ourselves.

M. J. Ryan is one of the creators of the New York Times bestselling Random Acts of Kindness and the author of The Happiness Makeover, How to Survive Change You Didn't Ask For, and Attitudes of Gratitude, among other titles.
