Waiting for scary medical test results, to hear from someone you desperately miss or to hear the outcome of a job interview or book/script submission can be a sort of psychic agony. On many levels the waiting game is a major part of life and it sucks on every level. We can order anything we want in the world with a click of a mouse so why do we have to wait? Oh why?
Get on with it, hurry up, fast track me to the outcome, I beg thee, please. We need to
know and NOW! Our desire to control the future and outcomes creates a resistance which hurts and can lead to depression and a disappointment that life is not delivering on the order we cosmically placed.
Here are a few thoughts which may help you as you play the waiting game.
Please take this on - no one is going to save or rescue you no matter how many dime store romances you have read.
We can control a lot less in life than we think. Stop hurting yourself trying.
Sometimes we need to learn to float and go with the flow. Attack water and distrust it and we drown. So relax and trust the process. Resistance, Mr Bond, is futile!
Acceptance is the salve for the unknown.
There is power in patience.
