|It's good I'm not a waiter. |
I am bad at waiting in both senses of the word. Via.
I mentioned this, fairly flippantly, to an acquaintance today. She responded, also fairly flippantly*, that I had to be careful, that while I waited good things could be passing me by. That you can't spend your life waiting.
She had a point, of course. Life is not a dress rehearsal. Strike while the iron is hot. Just do it. Carpe diem. That said, some things you just have to wait for. You have no choice. No matter how hard you work and how pushy you are and how many lists you write, all you can do is wait.
