“The best things come to those who wait”

Written by on October 6, 2014 in Attract Your Reality - 15 Comments

Have you ever seen that fantastic TV advert for Heinz ketchup that ran for ages in the US and maybe somewhat abroad too with the best tagline ever: “The best things come to those who wait”? Check it out here.

I have to admit that I’ve found myself quoting that line quite often to men I was dating (you’ll know why if you’re a woman dating these days). I’d like to think that I’m worth waiting for, and, usually at least, the men in my life tend to agree.

But these past several months it’s actually been me quoting that line to myself: “The best things come to those who wait, The best things come to those who wait, The best things come to those who wait…” I chant it like a mantra to myself on the days when it feels like what I’m doing more than anything is waiting for something better: a better job, a better relationship, a better home, a better lifestyle, better, better, better.

In truth, are we ever really satisfied with just having what we have or is everything in life just waiting for something better to come along? So in this month, following some dissatisfying career moments, I’d like to offer a compromise to myself… I will still continue to wait (with action of course) for the “best things” to come along, but I will also be grateful for where I am and for who I’ve become — because, after all, it’s actually pretty good where I am already.

Maybe it’s true that there are even better things to come, but where I am is already miles from where I once was. I have two amazing kids who I am grateful for every day; I have the most fantastic, true friends I’ve ever had; I have a very active and fun personal life and a new relationship which has potential; I have a top education and a network some would pay for; and I’m living the kind of lifestyle that most would dream about. In fact, for some less fortunate, my life would indeed be in line with what they’d think was “the best things”…

So here is the crux of the matter: there will always be something better that can come along, and we should never stop driving for that something, for that is what ambition is made of. But we should also take the time to measure where we’ve come to and be grateful for where we are and what we’ve managed to become — not only because there is surely someone worse off who’d love to be just where we are, but also because being grateful is what satisfaction and happiness is made of. Without gratitude, we will always just be dissatisfied and waiting to be filled (and there is a place for that too). But with gratitude, we will find happiness in where we are while also driving forward to somewhere better. For a fulfilling life, one cannot go without the other. We need both and they need each other: like a perfect couple. Just as I always see the world: in the power of two.

    I do love the manner in which you have presented this challenge and it really does supply me personally a lot of fodder for thought. Nevertheless, because of everything that I have seen, I just simply wish when the actual reviews stack on that people remain on point and not embark upon a soap box involving the news du jour. Yet, thank you for this outstanding point and whilst I can not really concur with this in totality, I respect the perspective.

    The subsequent time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, however I actually thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could repair when you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
