So why wait for anything when we have everything so readily available? Consider a time where you received something right away. How long did you feel satisfied? Now think of a time where you had to wait - such as needing to save money for an item or waiting a full week for shipping. Which experience brought more joy?
A person can wait one of two ways: passively or actively. Kaylin Koslosky of the Chastity Project writes "The first (waiting passively) results in resentment of the time that was spent waiting and a feeling of entitlement towards the object desired. The second state of waiting (actively), results in a time of growth."
Whether you are waiting for a spouse, job or the latest smartphone, take time to celebrate the wait!
