waiting well

today is that day those of us with a LOST obsession have been waiting for. finally.

naturally, my mind today is filled with all sorts of thoughts about waiting and anticipation, and how these things can affect us either positively or negatively.

i have been both a good wait-er and a bad wait-er.

when i am in bad wait-er mode, i dwell on what i do not have, to the detriment of the rest of my life. whether it is a vacation, something coming through the postal system, or something God has asked me to wait for, it doesn't matter. when i don't wait well, i am not the best version of suzi.

waiting well requires work. often waiting is looked at as a passive verb, basically to sit and do nothing. but i have learned otherwise. when i am waiting well i live my life fully aware of what is going on around me, and i let the reminders that i am still lacking something be a catalyst to help me prepare for the day when i do have what i desire.

to wait well means not to be consumed by what you do not have, but to faithfully live your daily life.

i wish i could say that i always wait well, but that is not the case. slowly, though, i am learning to be a better wait-er.

how are you at this whole waiting thing?
