Every time I turn around it seems that I am waiting for something.
Waiting is weird.
There is a lot of hurry up and wait in life.
Sometimes I have to rush to get somewhere, like the doctor’s office, and then wait…
Then there are times in life where I am waiting for something bigger.
Waiting to hear back about an interview.
Waiting for a class to finish.
Waiting for summer.
Waiting for Christmas.
Waiting for the weekend.
Waiting for the next ICO.
Waiting for my wife to get home.
Waiting for my garden to grow.
Waiting for the sports game to start.
Waiting for an idea to write about.
Sometimes the anticipation is great!
Other times the seconds feel like hours.
The day drags on.
The desired outcome is so far out of reach.
In today’s world where financial transactions can happen in 3 seconds, media is available with a few quick clicks, and there is no shortage of other instant communications, waiting can seem like the worst possible thing.
But is there good in waiting?
Waiting gives time for reflection.
Waiting gives time for second thoughts and second chances.
Waiting gives time for making mistakes and making corrections.
Waiting gives time to make a change.
Without waiting, maybe things would be done and over and forgotten without a second thought.
We could rush through our lives and arrive at the end.
What of it then?
What good was it to get there faster? To get there first?
What is the point of always doing things as fast as possible?
Maybe we should all take more time to slow down and appreciate the wait.
Or at least I hope I can.
So what are you waiting for?
