Isaiah 40 : 31
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint."
There is joy in waiting.
well, i'm actually talking about the kind of waiting that's different from the one which we classify as one of the wastes that need to be reduced or eliminated through Lean management. waiting that makes you feel unproductive and wasted is not a really good feeling. i'm talking about the waiting where you get the feeling of excitement for something that just keeps mounting up. although there can be a bit of anxiety as well. but that sense of anticipation for the unknown that keeps you on your toes is something that i think is part of life. it's that time when there is actually something to look forward to.
i saw the pic above posted by a friend on FB, and i couldn't agree more. some of my friends often ask me how i can be so patient to wait and there are those who say i should stop 'coz it's stupid to wait for something that one is not sure of. well, it's not just stubborn-ness. but this is me. if i want something so bad, i can wait.
