    If You Wait Long Enough.....

    Some people give up too soon. Sometimes if we wait long enough, bad things will go away (often, bad things may be people). Not all bad things will vanish, but that's the core of living, that we too must be aware of what battle is worth fighting.

    Conversely, if we wait long enough, good things can happen.

    Take for example if someone you work with or share classes with, or is part of a team you are on, is really not a person you care for. Not often, but in time these folks move on down the road. A "For Sale" sign goes up, and so long, farewell. That is why it does little good to waste a lot of good energy on them. Try not to let them get to you. They are not worthy, and with some luck, they will disappear from your life, even if that means just a little further away.

    Similarly I have often realized that by putting in the work, and being patient, sooner or later something positive comes from it. Surprisingly,.even unexpected good things can arrive at your doorstep.

    There are no guarantees. But the message I send is that, even though we can not expect all negative things to go away, or big rewards always await us......let time and patience work their wonders. And in so doing, do not let others mess with your plans. Either ignore them, or wait it out. And yes, sometimes things actually work out between folks over time. I have good allies in people I did not care for at first. But if we can't make it work, have hope.....

    .........That "For Sale" sign might just be ready to be planted.
