In a world where everyone wants to get things done as quickly as possible and where data and information travels faster than people can, the word “waiting” has an extremely negative connotation. Tell someone you’re waiting for something in life and be sure to be under fire for wasting your life away over something petty. The problem is how people interpret the word though. The way I see it, whatever has to happen, happens anyway. If that’s true, and it is, then waiting isn’t sitting with your hands idle, one over the other, doing nothing. Waiting is to constantly work on yourself, and to do things, and learn, and be better every day. It is an active attempt to being ready so that when whatever you’re waiting for comes around, you’re in a position to make the most of it. Waiting, in its truest sense, is nothing but an exemplary display of patience, which if you didn’t know, is the most celebrated virtue in history.
