If the saying rings true, “All good things come to those who wait,” why is that we have such a hard time being patient? Our society is routinely looking to make things quicker, more convenient, or even faster if it means that it gives them some extra time. From drive-thru coffee houses to drop off pharmacies our culture has become crazed with impatience.
Even as my generation has cultivated and developed accordingly, why does it seem like we aren’t getting where we want fast enough? We spend our whole lives waiting to be at the next turn in the road. We can’t wait to start driving, we can’t wait to graduate high school, we can’t wait to finish college; then it’s our careers, waiting to begin a family, and then counting down the days to retirement. We spend our lives waiting and waiting.
I have to wonder though, if we spend so much time and waste so much emotion trying to get ahead, have we ever really lived our lives or rather just been waiting around for life to happen? My suggestion would be to enjoy yourself where you’re at, because just because tomorrow doesn’t seem to arrive fast enough, it still always comes.
