I was the type of kid who ate the cake first instead of waiting until after dinner. And now, I'm the adult who wants the cake even before I stir the ingredients.
The world owes me, baby. That's what I tell myself.
I've put all this effort into making my dreams a reality. So why isn't it happening already? The universe is really slow. It needs to follow my script a little more closely.
I have always been attracted to how-to books that tell you that you should live your dreams. Rags-to-riches tales inspire me. I don't even mind a little hard work. I'm not afraid to dig in.
But when it takes forever (at least according to my watch) for something to happen, especially when I'm in the waiting phase, sometimes it makes me want to quit.
Somebody owes me. It's payback time. And when the reward is slow in coming, the cynic in me thinks it will never happen. It's easier to quit while I'm ahead than to face that kind of disappointment.
So I'm hanging in there, waiting for the universe to notice my amazingness. Because when it does, I'm taking the world by storm.
As long as it happens right now.
Do you hate waiting for your dreams to come true? How do you keep yourself from giving up?
