One of the hardest things in life is to wait. Wait for an answer. Wait for change. Wait for something you want. Whatever you are waiting for make no mistake about it: it’s hard! There’s no wonder why children find it so hard to be patient…they haven’t had a lifetime of ordeals to teach them that sometimes, you just must wait. If we as adults struggle, there’s no doubt it’s not easy.
But the reality is sometimes you have to wait for what you really, really, really want!
In fact, I’ve noticed that sometimes when I push for something that I really want too hard, I end up not getting it or, getting something that doesn’t quite work out because I wasn’t patient enough to have faith and wait.
Of course, there is also something to be said about waiting too long: you settle. Or, you miss opportunities, but sometimes it’s really worth it to wait for what you want.
So, if you’re finding it either hard to have faith or hard to wait for something, consider these reasons for waiting it out.
Because it’s Not Good When Sloppy Mistakes Are Made
When you don’t wait, sloppy mistakes are made. Sure, sometimes time is of the essence and you have to act hastily, but consider dating or finalizing your divorce.
Some of us were too hasty to settle down and ended up with the wrong person.
Some of us rushed our divorces and ended up with an agreement that was less than stellar or perhaps, was more problematic due to the speed.
Whatever the case, when you wait, fewer mistakes can be made. You can be more careful and in this case, it ends up being worth the wait.
