We’ve all heard the saying, “good things come to those who wait,” but few of us probably consider ourselves patient. We live in an era where everything is fast-paced and instantly available, yet often find ourselves waiting for something to happen: graduation, the right job, a package in the mail or even life direction. Here are a few suggestions of what to do while you wait.
- Do something. Whether it’s a hobby or a volunteer opportunity [with an organization like Convoy of Hope], dive into something that makes a difference.
- Expect the unexpected. Opportunity often comes when you least anticipate it. Be open to new experiences and new ideas. You never know where they might lead.
- Wait — don’t wait. Don’t let life pass you by while you’re being patient. Enjoy the moment and don’t miss out on the good things that are happening right now.
- Give back. Spend time giving back to others — you may find the answers to what you’re waiting for in a way you never expected.
