The Waiting Game


I'm a very impatient person. I don't like to wait - AT ALL. I have a tendency to over-think and over-analyze everything, and so the longer the waiting period, the worse it is for me because my mind comes up with all of these crazy scenarios. I just want to know already!

My husband knows this quite well. I think he has finally learned not to even imply that he bought me a present or planned any kind of surprise because I will hound him till the end of time. And then he just gives in and tells me what it is because he can't deal with my intensity. Haha. 

It's something that has always plagued me, even at a young age. One of my first memories is when I was 3 years old and telling my dad that I was actually 4 years old. Because I just couldn't wait to be 4. And no amount of logic would convince me otherwise - I was 4, damn it! 

I am totally the impatient person who will hang up on you if you put me on hold for longer than a minute. Or get up and leave a restaurant if no one comes by to at least take our drink order within 5-10 minutes. 

Being impatient definitely has its downfalls. It usually means that I forget to just breathe and live in the moment. I'm nitpicking every little thing that could go wrong, instead of looking at the big picture of how it's not really life or death. Like not seeing the forest for the trees, or however that saying goes. 

Anyway, after all of that, I can't even share what I'm waiting for yet. I know, such a tease. But I'd greatly appreciate some positive vibes. And any tips that you can share about how to just sit back and relax and let things happen. 

P.S. Shelly and I want to know: What makes you uncomfortable? Write down your answer and share with us for Write or Die Wednesdays, beginning July 15th and lasting for 2 weeks. Happy writing!
