Don’t let your impatience mess with your life decisions. Always make sure to remember these five most ignored reminders.
Most of our decisions are based on the understanding that things need to be done ASAP. We want that job right away after graduation, buy our first car and move to our first home.
We even become impatient with the smallest of choices, such as where to eat, when we buy our new gadgets, or when will the bank approve our credit card application.
These are just some of the examples I encounter every day in my life. I realized that the more impatient I become, the more irresponsible my decisions are. Society tells us that we’re living in a world where ‘speed is the name of the game.’ People have forgotten the saying, “slowly but surely”.
Imagine the terror of being in debt for ten years just cause you can’t wait to save up. It’s okay to want things, but don’t stress yourself too much. Dream in moderation, set realistic goals and never doubt your capacity to improve.
As we all move forward, everything gets more disorganized, people are afraid to run out of things and it is really dissapointing to witness. More and more people are getting mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted every day.
I know that sometimes, life can be difficult. But I believe that God has plans for everyone, even for those who don’t believe in Him.
1. Let’s not let the world force us to believe that it’s first come, first serve. Rather, let’s teach ourselves to be kind to those who have been waiting, offer a helping hand to those who are hoping, and pray for ourselves that we may have the patience and the perseverance to be content with what we have.
2. Let’s all be vigilant especially when everything doesn’t seem to be working according to how we planned it. Don’t rush things especially if it sounds too good to be true.
3. Whenever we make a decision, regardless of how significant, we should always think about the lifelong impact it will have in our life.
Remember, a fruitful tree doesn’t grow overnight even if you feed it with the most expensive fertilizer. It needs the right amount of water to bloom. Sometimes, even the tallest trees rot if they’re overwatered.
4. Never let your impatience mess up your life decisions. Establish a set of plans for each setback. Even if you think it’ll fail, at least you tried.
5. And finally, quit looking at social media if you think it’s affecting your every day choice, or else you might end up living regretting a decision you’ve made just cause Facebook thinks you need it.
