Sometimes, things take forever to just happen.
You want them to happen. If not now, then soon. You’ll do anything to speed them up. You’re bouncing in your seat, just waiting for things to get a move on.
They say that patience is a virtue. I often replied that it was not a virtue I ever possessed. As I grew older, I realized that patience isn’t optional, at least not for a good life. It’s something you absolutely need if you’re going to live your life to the fullest.
You can’t spend every waking moment thinking, worrying, and getting angry over things you have no control over. You may be waiting to hear back from a visa application, or you could be waiting for your life to be in control again. What you’re waiting for doesn’t matter. What matters is how you wait for it.
Take things one step at a time. Be patient. Don’t spend your energy worrying. Your time is limited. Shouldn’t you be living in the present, working on things you can control? The future will come when it does.

I’m personally waiting for my freelance job to begin, and for my passport application.
