On Waiting Patiently for What You Want

When the hour comes, find it. Don’t let it pass. But don’t force it. Wait on it. Wait on it. Like waiting to make a left-hand turn at a busy intersection. If you wait patiently long enough, your opportunity comes. Ignore the honking of your brain telling you to, “Go. Go now.” You know the time’s not right. You’d be cutting it too close.

I’m waiting on the routine hour or two of writing time I had in the past for this blog to come back to me. I know it will when the toddler gets a little older and doesn’t need my hands and feet so much from morning to night. I’m waiting patiently and calmly on my “left turn.” I know it will come. Yes, I get a little resentful at times that carving out an hour to write seems to be impossible without throwing the house out of equilibrium too much somewhere else. But it will come IF and AS I am patiently and persistently waiting on it.

Is there a place in life where you need to be patiently and persistently looking for that nice interval to get back in the flow of traffic again? I’m waiting and watching with you. I won’t turn into traffic and crash, and I won’t wait for midnight to make an easy, but too late, turn. I’m on the lookout for that good, timely opening. It always comes if I’m looking for it.

I have been absent here simply because I cannot get to the laptop to research and write. Thankfully, everything in “our little box” (my home) is going refreshingly well, one of those few lulls that life gives you every now and then! I just can’t carve out writing time! I’ve tried staying up late. That didn’t work. I’ve tried going to the library. That doesn’t work. And so on. But, I’ll figure it out. And I hope, in nutrition, health, education, whatever it is, I hope you do too!

Don’t give up. Look for a way. Problem solve. Wait patiently, yet with a steady persistent vision.

Hope to write more soon! But only as traffic and my driving skills allow! Thanks for your vote of confidence in reading what I write. It is valued.

    Ahhhhhh love seeing something here from you (no pressure!). I totally understand that life sometimes doesn’t allow for the time to write. Get it! But I’ve been thinking of you here and there so I am pleased the hear life is going ok. Not sure if you saw my moving post but it’s Emily Maine blogging under her real name again. Just in case my friendliness confused you! Ha! Lots of love to you and yours x

      Nope, not confused! With my time on the laptop today, I was able to go back and follow. Even though I saw your post about changing to a new space around when it came out, I ran out of time to click over and follow along at that time. Seems like finding computer time is like slogging through a muddy snowstorm. Yeah, that hard. Ha! So you’ll see me added already! I really like the title of the blog: Stories for Strength. All is well here. Kind of fun actually. But when do toddlers sleep? πŸ™‚
