A few years back, I went to see a Broadway play. Afterwards, I hung around outside the stage door and wound up talking to the director.
“Be patient,” he said when I asked for advice.
This is something at which I’ve never excelled. Be it waiting for a break, waiting for things to change, or waiting for the love of my life, I’m not good at waiting. But we wait for a reason.
My roommate is always fond of saying, “You wouldn’t pick a peach before it’s ripe.”
Let yourself get good and ripe while you wait.
On a separate note: Jimmy Eat World is doing a series of live streamed concerts over the next few weeks. I tuned in and watched them perform Surviving front to back this afternoon. Definitely worth a watch.
