The Virtue of Waiting

Standard

Everyone always says it to the point you want to punch them: “All good things come to those who wait.” Yeah, you need to wait a couple more seconds until I slug you.

2014 was a year of learning contentment, learning about appreciating life in Pittsburgh, and understanding that nothing ever goes as you think it will. The grass is always greener on the other side, but if you are happy with the way you cut your own grass, you don’t notice what others have except to congratulate them for getting their lawn so green.

2015 is going to be a year of waiting. Waiting to finish grad school, waiting for a job, waiting to know what’s going to happen at this stage of my life. Waiting stinks. I am a naturally impatient person. I want it NOW and if no one gets it for me, I’ll get it myself! But that’s not the way life goes sometimes. Some things are worth waiting for. The right job is worth waiting for. The right romantic partner is worth waiting for. Wait, but don’t forget to appreciate the stops along the way. Those are where you make your memories.
