I have a lot if things going on right now in my life. New child almost here, writing career being built, and a one year old marriage. These last few years have been the best time of my life.
There is a lot of hurry up and wait in it though. Hurry up and take the test, yay we're pregnant! Now we have to wait. Hurry up and write something, it's needs to be on paper now. Now I have to edit it to make it sound better, and match more closely to what I want it. Marketing, yea that takes time. Hurry up and get to the wedding, it only lasts for a few hours, that I can scarcely remember, and now we spend the rest of our lives together.
All of it is great but it isn't something that you can prepare for. It something you just do. Reading books, watching videos, and listening to others about parenting, writing, and marriage helps, but it's not the same.
There is lots of built up energy and not everything can be done in a day. Even God took 6 days to create everything. So you need to know that anticipation is good, busting your butt is good, but rest is also needed. Time is also needed. If it takes time that's ok, most things that are important do.
