Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

Seems simple enough, yet the one thing most of us lack is patience.

https://i2.wp.com/www.netgautam.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/patience_thumb.jpgSource

If god were watching down on me for all these months he would know that my attitude was less than admirable. I cried, I cursed, I gave up. I wallowed in my own despair and told myself I wasn’t smart enough, I wasn’t dedicated enough, I wasn’t good enough. My four years at the University of Miami meant nothing. A waste.

Until today….

This silly email was what I had been waiting for since December of last year. My sleepless nights, anxiety attacks, bouts of emotional tears, all caused because I hadn’t been accepted. Finally my patience has been rewarded. I can look forward to these following months of rest and relaxation because I deserve them, I am allowed to take the time to myself without feeling guilty. I have something to look forward to.

My breakfast tasted 1000x better today then it did yesterday.

Chocolate banana overnight oats with granola, reeses chips, and cinnamon raisin peanut butter

Great way to start off the weekend and I couldn’t be any more happier Smile

Won’t be long until I start wearing these

Have a great weekend!!!

    Oh my gosh- AMAZING!!! PA programs are so hard to get into for the “typical” undergrad. (And by “typical” I mean someone who hasn’t worked in health care for at least 2 years.)
    What did you do to get your hands on experience?

    I love the quote at the beginning of this post…You’re so right–It’s all about attitude. There are many things we can’t control in life, but the one thing that we *always* can control is the way we react to situations! xoxoxo

    I was never one for patience. This has changed A LOT since having a baby. You need lots of patience. I definitely mellowed out a lot from the time I got preggo. Think my hormones were preparing me. I used to be super high strung and impatient. Like seriously impatient..eek!

    This might sound craaayycray, but this post really helped me. I have been overwhelmed with anxiety and fear about school lately. I was put onto an alternate list for the dental hygiene program I applied to, and am trying to tell myself that if I keep at this I will get in next time I apply. It’s nice to know I’m not alone and that good things do come to those who wait! Thank you for sharing! =)
