Today’s Gem of Gratitude #355


Today I am thankful for the ability to wait for what I truly want rather than settling for something less. In the past, it was a challenge for me to wait for the things that I wanted – a few times, I settled for being in the wrong relationship because I wanted to be with someone; I made the decision to buy certain products which were of less quality than what I truly wanted; and I turned my back on a relationship that deserved better treatment than that, all because I refused to wait. But now, at this point in my life, I have finally grasped the concept of waiting for the best instead of settling for less.

Now, do I still have my occasional moments when I put waiting on the back shelf? Yes, I do. But, thankfully, those moments are much fewer and farther between now than they used to be. And though waiting is not always the easiest thing to do, it is typically the wisest, because during the time that it takes for you to wait for the right thing, person, or opportunity to come along, you are being prepared for the very thing, person, or opportunity for which you are waiting. So, when the best of whatever or whomever finally arrives, your best is there to greet it or them. See, waiting is not so bad, now is it? #lovebythedrop
