At times we all probably need to hang around, waiting for this or that, him or her. Yet what is to be done when waiting is no longer an option? For whatever reasons we might find ourselves in the situation of not being able to sit patiently by whilst events, or people, fall into line with our plans.
Being clear about our intentions regarding any moment, and also in this case concerning what is to be done when waiting is no longer an option, gives valuable guidance to our eventual actions.
Making a move from a position of clarity, be it connected to objectives or overall values, is a way we maintain our direction even in the face of potentially annoying holdups.
Of course, there will be occasions in which the answer to the nagging question “What is to be done when waiting is no longer an option?” is a resounding “Nothing”. Accepting we just have to wait at times may be a pertinent lesson for us to learn sooner rather than later.
Then again we always have the possibility of finding new perspectives to any question, but that is surely material for another post. For now, thanks for reading this “What is to be done when waiting is no longer an option“.
