The way I see it, everyone’s playing the waiting game. At the moment I’m surrounded by folk shuffling impatiently in life’s waiting room. Waiting to land that new job, waiting to buy that dream home, waiting for the arrival of a new bub. Or, more simply, waiting for the weekend, waiting for a takeaway coffee or waiting for the traffic lights to change.
Recently, I had my own little lightbulb moment. You see, I too spend a lot of time waiting. Waiting at bus stops and waiting at train stations are pretty much de rigueur for us car-less but there is an upside to the downtime. I’ve forged some really formidable friendships at bus stops. While getting from A to B these great gals took the time to see an opportunity to chew the fat and golly I’m grateful for that.
Likewise, last year I met Renee from Mummy Wife Me while waiting for a lift at a blogging conference. Since then, Renee’s opened many more doors for me by sharing some invaluable online tips.
So here’s my tip for the taking; look up from your clock watching every now and then ’cause you just might discover something that makes the wait worthwhile.
Tell me, what are you waiting for?
