Patience, Grasshopper

Waiting for midnight.
Waiting for a new year.
Waiting for grand baby.
Waiting for the wedding.
Waiting for graduation.
Waiting for relationships to happen and mature.
Waiting for happiness.

Midnight comes every twenty four hours. This one will too.

A new year will come, as it always does.

Babies tend to be born after forty weeks, give or take. The body just seems to know when it’s time to bring the new life into the world, and it’s not usually on our schedule.

Anticipate the date. Don’t rush it.
You’re going to miss the college years.

Strong, solid, wonderful attachments seem to happen when you least expect them. You can’t force them, you can’t script them, and you can’t deny them when they hit you right between the eyes.

If you are constantly waiting for happiness, the little things that can make you happy will pass you by.

Don’t be caught up in the waiting game.

Live life now, even if it’s ten more hours until midnight.

Reflect on all the blessings of the year that is passing. You can never live it again.

Relish the immortality that grandchildren bring you.

Know that weddings and graduations happen on a specific date, but the benefits they bring can last a lifetime.

Think less. Feel more.

Experience. Make things happen.

Choose to give love. (It will come back to you ten-fold.)

When you click with someone, embrace it. There is no feeling quite like it.

Choose to be happy this year, and every year from now on.

Have a safe and happy new year, dear readers.

See you right here in 2014.

  1. “Don’t be caught in the waiting game. Think less. Feel more.”

    Yes! Great advice!

    Wishing a very blessed new year for you, Greg!!



  2. How often do we hear “I can’t wait for this day / week / year to be over”? How often do we say it ourselves (guilty…). And someone once responded to me “Why are you wishing your life away? The day will end – when it is supposed to, and hopefully no sooner”. I was struck by his comments and wisdom, especially as he was so young. I think of that every time I “can’t wait” for something. Patience, live life now, enjoy the present. Happy New Year to you.


  3. My partner and I stumbled over here coming from a different web
    address and thought I should check things out.
    I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to exploring
    your web page again.
