waiting anxiously

I have a hard time waiting. It’s true. I’m super impatient and want everything done yesterday. Currently there are a few things I’m anxiously waiting for…my updated website to be done (can not wait to share it with you!), my hair to grow (it’s the slowest), the Olympics to start (I mean, it’s the SUMMER Olympics and SUMMER is almost over) and a weekend getaway where I can just lie on a beach and do nothing (so I can get bored in a day and start worrying about what’s not getting done). Ahhhh! When all the thoughts above (and more) start making me crazy, I realize I need to take a moment and breathe. It’s so easy to not be happy where you are and constantly focus on what’s next. I am very guilty of this. But at the risk of sounding “woo woo,” if am constantly waiting for the next thing to happen, will I ever be happy with right now? Deep. What do you do to keep things balanced? Please share…I’ll just sit here and wait for your comments. Hehe.

    So true! I feel the same way often and I am quite anxious as well. I usually try to enjoy the little small things one can achieve during the day or that can help you to achieve your future aims. But really trying to realize what you could achieve. As well as this, positive thoughts! If not, whenever you get to your future projects, you never finish to enjoy them because you keep thinking on what comes next. But obviously I never lose sight of my major long term projects like trips or work objectives, for me, it keeps you active and alive just to think about what you want next!  Even with a couple, boyfriend or girldfriend. Love your blog! Greetings from Argentina! Love, Geraldine
