Wishing your life away?

Do you ever feel that you can't fully enjoy the present because you're too busy waiting on the future? Waiting to graduate, waiting to be engaged, waiting to get married, waiting to start your career, waiting to start having babies, waiting to travel... the list really is never ending. This is something I struggle with all the time. Sometimes it seems like all I ever do is wait and I'm trapped in this four-year-time-trap called "college."

Well, the truth is that if you aren't happy by yourself, you can never be happy with anyone else. If you can't enjoy the present, you won't be ready to enjoy the future. Learning to be happy where you are right now will only make your future better, and waiting will only make whatever it is you're waiting for that much sweeter when it finally happens.

"Your willingness to wait reveals the value you place on the object you're waiting for." (Charles Stanley).
