Compassionate Living: What to do while you’re waiting

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
