When I think of the Ages and Stages of human growth, I am always amazed over the concept of “time.” It seems like when you are a kid, time goes slowly, especially for things like Christmas, other holidays, or becoming a grown up. Once you get to those older stages, it seems like there is never enough time. So, time is not usually our friend or something we are satisfied with no matter what stage of development we are in or what Season of our Life we are experiencing.
Of course, we know that Life is a Journey and the older one gets, chronologically speaking, the more the process of growth is associated with time. For example, we are waiting for marriage or waiting for a child or waiting for a new job. The list of waiting time is endless. The more impatient we are with the process, the more urgent or rushed we often feel OR, the more we feel like giving up because we feel “it is never going to happen.”
We humans are so used to the false perception that they are in “control” of things that rushing to make something happen or taking matters in their own hands to force it to happen is often the way our brain operates. The default setting is “control,” and GO. It is very humbling to find times and seasons in our life when we wake up to the fact that we have very little control and certainly not over TIMING.
We all have our dreams and visions. When they do not happen, we often give up right before something was actually going to happen. Going into defeat and giving up the dream is a great mistake because the dream can still happen, just “isn’t here yet.” The idea of it “isn’t here yet” reminds me of kids riding in the car asking, “Are we there yet?” They have no concept of time so an hour drive can seem endless. That is how we are when we have waited and waited and worked hard to make something happen, but it isn’t here yet.
Never give up your vision or your dreams. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty and reality of their dreams is a famous quote by Eleanor Roosevelt. It is truth. Mostly, what hasn’t happened yet is because of readiness. You have to be developed in order to step into something big. While failure is part of the process of realizing most dreams, continued failures will happen and defeat us if we are not fully developed to handle the dream. It would be like letting a your person drive the car before they were developed enough to know how to drive or handle all that is necessary to manage driving an automobile.
They key to waiting is to understand that the Journey is developing and preparing you for what is ahead. It is also important to learn to shift attitude and keep hoping (high hopes) and embrace the growth you are experiencing while waiting. It is very possible to thrive during these times and not just feel like you are barely surviving. It is all about your attitude toward the process. Remember, keep an attitude of faith, gratitude and keep asking for it to manifest. Then, let God do the Rest:)
Train your brain to update and stay present with what you desire to believe and receive.
