How To Find Power in a Waiting Season of Life

How To Find Power in a Waiting Season of Life

Can we talk about something really hard?? WAITING & PATIENCE!!!
In my 25 years I've waited for a handful of things & it's all been exhausting.⁠ ⁠ Waiting to recover after injuries, waiting in limbo for my next chapter to start, waiting for treatments & diets to help my chronic skin, waiting to build a new family after divorce, waiting for job leads to return emails... I'm sure so many of you have waited for bigger things much longer.⁠ ⁠

Something I waited for that caused the most anxiety for me was waiting to make, produce & ship the journals I created. I had recently lost my job so the pressure to make this thing work was ON & every day of waiting felt like an entire year lost.⁠ ⁠ I waited for production managers, designers, saving enough money (without a job lol) to take the next steps, production time, my own learning curves & overseas shipping. From start to finish it took a little less than a year to create my journal BUT OH MAN, did it feel like eternity.⁠

During this waiting period I tried to work on any project I could that would build momentum for my business once the product arrived. Now looking back... the work I did during that PAINFUL waiting period served me so well & launched me forward.
Once the journals FINALLY did arrive I had everything I needed batched & ready to go for the launch. I was even able to write another journal during this time... Coming soon lol...⁠ ⁠ It's easy to see all this progress & momentum in my business since it's all tracked through goal setting & analytics. It got me thinking that all the "work" I do in my personal life during different "waiting" periods is probably equally as powerful.⁠ ⁠

Let me be clear... I am not saying "everything happens for a reason" because I don't think that's true. Sometimes things we hate happen & it JUST SUCKS. There's no way around it.

However, know that the "life" you're living in-between the highlight moments is powerful. The work you're doing is springing you forward in big ways. ⁠ ⁠ There is power in the waiting. Those are the times that you show up when no one is watching & work towards your goals because you love yourself. That is STRAIGHT POWER!!
