We live in a pretty cool world, worth the wait!

We live in a pretty cool world, worth the wait!



One can want something, look it up, click “order” or “purchase” and it will arrive at your doorstep that same day, the next day, or within a few days.

Amazing!  So cool…so convenient…so amazing!

Remember back in the day, looking something up in a catalog, or ordering it at a store…and having to wait 1-2-3 for it?

It was pretty exciting when it arrived.  There was a wee bit more anticipation…and maybe excitement.

Don’t get me wrong.  It’s pretty darned cool to pick, click and receive in lightning-fast speed.  Makes life easier…and exciting in its own right.

But, it also trains us to be a Pavlov’s Dog in way.  Ring a bell, salivate (so to speak), get what you want rapidly.

This can add a layer of stress to our lives.  We can get cranky when we don’t get what we want, when we want.

Whatever it is…whatever your target is…whoever it is…work hard for it.  Some things will come easily and quickly.

But some will not.  Some objects of desire will take time.  Take adjusting.  Strategizing and persistence.  Stick with it…stay focused…Don’t quit!

Mom was right:  It’s worth the wait!
