I know that patience is a virtue. And I wholeheartedly agree with this. But do you ever get tired of waiting for things to happen? Are you trying to find someone to spend your life with and it hasn't happpened? Are you trying to figure out what to do with your life:jobs/careers/and other activities and yet you are not sure what would be best for you? How about if your married, do you get tired of working at it? If your divorced do you wish you would have worked at it and stayed? Because we don't all know exactly and precisely what will happen in the future these things can be frustrating. We all want decisions we make to turn out good for us. But we can't necessarily tell what will happen. So at times choosing and making certain decisions can be difficult. I personally at times get very tired of waiting for things to happen. I really like to see results. When I see results I feel awhole lot better about myself and my life. I want things to happen but things don't always happen the way we want them to. If we want to get married that may take longer than expected. We may not get the education or career we hoped for. Our marriage may not last like we thought it would, or a divorce we may come to see was a bad decision. How do you deal when you start to feel tired of waiting for your aspirations to come to life, your dreams and goals?

I think that the best way to solve this is to think about cause and effect. Make a decision about something before actually doing it and then think of what will happen if you do this and if you don't like what first comes to mind it is usually not the thing to do. Try different possibilities until you feel that you will get the best outcome. I know this sounds a little too much like a math problem, but it works for me. I feel like I know what is going to happen before it happens. This gives me a great sense of control. Also, never wait for something to happen to you, take the first step and put yourself out there. You have nothing to lose in life, don't live it always worrying, just have fun with it while you can. That is my motto and I am happy in my life 99.9% of the time. Have a great life! (:

Thanks, these are all great suggestions. I agree that we do need to look at things this way. It allows for us to be able to think more logically about things. And it will help us to have greater results that we are looking for. It is a good way to make decisions. And I do think that it's important to take the first step, and not just sit around and wait for things to start happening. All the things that you said were very encouraging. I greatly appreciate it. Yeah and I want to enjoy my life, not worry all the time. That would only lead me to growing old and then looking back and wishing that I had enjoyed that time instead. I will keep all of these points in mind.

I believe in that every thing has on time. I dont waste my time in thinking about future. I work hard today so that my future will be fruitful. I have great amount of patience. Patience will lead to good deeds. If we have to wait means we are not at the time to be happen. God is the who fix things on us for our future benefits.

I try to affirm that what I want will come to pass. I have witnessed the power of affirmations and so I will continue to affirm that what I will materialise. Patience is not my greatest virtue and so it can be frustrating to wait. But I know that what I want in life will eventually become a reality. It's only a matter of time.
