Patience + Em = Hot Mess

By Patience I mean the virtue, not my adorable 9-year-old niece, Patience (AKA Pae)...just want to clear that up!

Sometimes I think that I am proactive to a fault. This really makes it extremely hard for me to just be patient and wait for things to happen. I've always been of the mindset that God opens doors for me in my life, lines up the timing for me, but I have to actually do the work, put the time in, job-hunt, write, juggle 3 jobs to get out of Indiana, etc...I can't just sit back passively and wait for life to happen to me because I might miss some fantastic opportunities.

On the other hand I'm notice that I wind myself up way too tight "trying" to make things happen and constantly working on the next steps I need to take that I completely miss out on the present...but that's another story...

What I was actually going to blog about was that I feel outrageously frustrated because I have done absolutely everything humanly possible that I can in this whole apartment/home finding situation Aaron and I have found ourselves struggling through. I have scoured classifieds, scary craigslist listings, websites and picked the brains of every real estate broker I even remotely know. Aaron and I think we finally have a plan, a great win-win situation to have a great place to live...but I have to wait. We don't know for sure, I can't force anything else through and I have to wait and see if this will pan out or if we have to start from ground zero again.

So how do I feel about waiting?
