We live in a society where we are all often impatient. A society that wants everything “now” and it’s an effort when we have to wait. It’s almost as if we are programmed for immediacy. The fact is that everything happens in its own time. Yes, frustration sets in as you become impatient, but know there’s a reason for this un-programmed timetable. You may not understand why or how in a given moment, but when the time is right, you will know. It’s all part of a cosmic order that we have no control over. It’s as if everything was written in the stars….I think you get the point.
What you do have control over, is how your perceive each life experience. Some come with challenges or obstacles, some more burdensome than others. But each experience in life, it’s lead you to where you are today.
With each experience, you may develop a change in attitude or response. It’s how you overcome the fear, face the obstacles, and accept the challenges, which can make a difference in your future. A door will open when you least expect it, and you will be given opportunities. Each opportunity is a chance for you to choose a path or direction. And the choices you make can most definitely impact the outcome.
You’ve often heard the phrase that “happiness is a journey, not a destination.” This means although you may not be able to choose the day or time for such happiness, the persistence to pursue your given destiny remains with you.
And in the midst of life, while you are waiting, perhaps impatiently, don’t sit idle. Make life happen. Walk through open doors, see beyond the obvious and reach for your creative thoughts. Open your heart as well as your mind. Use your heartfelt thoughts wisely, and watch as your life unfolds, you may be pleasantly surprised.
Accept that everything will come to you, in its own time. The right time.
