September 17': Wait
September was a weird month for me, to put things bluntly. There were changes in a lot of areas of my life, some I took to happily and some were not the first on my "things I wish would happen to me" list. What I took from the whirl wind of this past month is learning how incredibly important it is that I know how and when to wait. Wait on the right time, right person, right opportunity, clear choice, or definite decision. When life begins to loosen from my grasp, and I feel myself lose control my first instinct is to scramble to put it all back together as fast as I can. Many times this leaves me with a sloppy repair job that I know won't hold up, and I end up having to fix for a second time when it's inevitably revealed to me that perhaps I should have taken my time. It is essential that we as people learn that sometimes it is ok to not have everything perfect right in this very moment, all things that leave your life do not need to be replaced immediately, and if something feels wrong in the moment it probably means you should wait until you can make a choice that feels correct. In a society that practically runs on instant gratification, we are conditioned to believe that the best option is the one that is here in front of us now. I can tell you from my experience (and many of you probably agree) that rarely is that the case. This month I have seen first hand that it pays off to embrace what you have now that feels and is right, and that those things are more than enough to appreciate as you wait on the right things to come into other areas of your life at the best time.
