ALL ABOUT WAITING

“She was still waiting for him to come back to her, even though he wasn't going to. She was still holding out for something that wasn't going to happen. She was good at waiting. That seemed like a sad thing to be good at.” 

 When you chose to follow the way of purity, did you expect it to be easy? When you decided to wait for the best, did you think that waiting would be fun? Did you think that your faith would not be tested? When you decided to take the narrow path, did no one warn you that difficulties, hardship, and tears would be part of the journey, and that you would often face rejection from others and be forced to walk alone?

“...sitting and waiting is one of the most miserable occupations known to man - not that it usually is known to men; women do it much more often.”  

Maybe you think you’ll be entitled to more happiness later by forgoing all of it now, but it doesn’t work that way. Happiness takes as much practice as unhappiness does. It’s by living that you live more. By waiting you wait more. Every waiting day makes your life a little less. Every lonely day makes you a little smaller. Every day you put off your life makes you less capable of living it.” 

“Waiting hurts. Forgetting hurts. But not knowing which decision to take can sometimes be the most painful...”  

“Waiting's exhausting.” 

 “Go if you want to know what's behind those hills, Run if you want to catch
what's waiting there for you, Walk through another door...on another floor.
Learn how to get across, if you want to come through”
