Wait for It, Wait for It.....

Do you ever feel like you are waiting for the other shoe to drop? Feeling like something is about to happen, but you aren’t sure what it is? It could be good, it could be bad, you have no idea. But it’s something…. It’s just lingering out there, just out of reach in the daily grind that is your life. You go through your daily business, trying to stay busy enough not to think about ‘that thing.’ When you don’t even know what ‘that thing’ is! It is frustrating, and can make your days very long. It’s not like waiting for something you KNOW is going to happen. Like a wedding, or a new baby, or a move to a new city or house. Those are things you have planned, things that can’t get here fast enough and you are waiting, but time seems to fly by and then all of a sudden it’s here. But NOT knowing what you are waiting for is infuriating!

Patience is a virtue. It’s a virtue because most people don’t have it, and it seems like a good quality to have, so we all feel like we need it because we all want to be virtuous. I ask God on a regular basis to ‘give me patience, and give it to me NOW!’ ;) Too bad it’s not that easy. I saw a quote once that said, "Patience is waiting without worrying." I never really associated patience with worrying, but I guess they go hand in hand. My impatience lately does not really have any worry associated with it. I don’t know why I am impatient, so what could there be to worry about? I just feel like something is going to happen. Like there has to be something better out there, and I’m waiting for it. I’m ready. Bring it on. Just hurry it up damn it!
