It’s Friday evening, and instead of meeting up with friends at a happy hour spot, I am sitting at my home office desk, surrounded by paper scraps and journal making materials, listening to YouTube videos on my phone about generating multiple streams of income, positive thinking, and other motivational topics, as I type this. I do this: go through phases of learning, waiting, and working. The working phase mostly consists of me creating something exciting.
I’ve been trying to work on my patience. Before, the issue was that there was still more that I needed to learn in order to move forward. Now, the “issue” is timing. I have the knowledge I need to get where I’m going, but I have to be patient as I work through the process. It’s a great problem to have. A woman doesn’t find out she’s pregnant and head straight to the hospital to deliver her baby. Instead, she starts preparing her body, her home, and her loved ones for the timely arrival of the newborn. My problem is that there is no known appointed time to expect what is to come. We know it takes 9 months for a baby to bake in a womb, but what is the time it takes for a dream to come true?
This is the boring phase. This is the waiting phase. I’m doing what I’m supposed to do to get the results I want, and I’m spending my time learning more things too.
