Do you ever feel like you want things to happen immediately? Actually you NEED things to happen immediately? Because I do. …A LOT. I always want things to happen now and fast. I’m an instant gratification type of girl and I don’t think it’s necessarily a good thing. I use the terms ‘things’ precisely. These ‘things’ almost always have to do with my hopes and dreams for the future, so you could say it’s career driven haste.
However, when I realise that life is a journey I just pause, breathe and snap out of my need for speed. I’m so glad that I can appreciate the process of things and the journey of life. It really is a beautiful thing to witness ‘the grind’ and ‘the come-up’ because at the end of the day, when you look back to see how far you have come, you truly will be marvelled by what you didn’t think baby-steps could achieve.
P.S I still have my instant gratification mindset from time to time, but everyday I am learning that patience truly is a virtue.
