What can I do while waiting?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (19441points) September 20th, 2020

I seem to always be waiting for something. Waiting in the doctors office. Waiting for delivery of parcels and food. Waiting for the neighbor to take his laundry out of the wash so that I can do my laundry. Waiting for pills to take affect. Waiting for a television show to start.

What can I do while waiting? Like go on internet, read a book, ect.

Also how much time do you spend waiting?

Humor welcome.

I often just daze out. I don’t spend much time waiting at all. Maybe in a grocery line or doc’s office.

Take up knitting. I knitted an entire rug at Disneyland one year.

I you are waiting in a public place, please don’t follow @ragingloli‘s advice. But it is a great idea if you want to pass the time at home, especially if you want to sleep well afterwards.

Write ideas in a small notebook, also poems, stories,diary..anything that you would like to document.

Observe others and learn about how people behave ( people watching).Become ore observant of your surroundings.

Relax, breathe slowly and take a break from too much going on.

Make a list of things you want to do today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, a few years from now. Anything.

List all the good things about you that hardly no one knows. Positive feedback.

Appreciate yourself and realize that you were born for a reason complete a mission,

leave a mark,discovery,idea, help others, to learn, to teach, to live each day in wonderment

that we are all here to uplift Humanity in some way, small or large .

We All leave a “footprint” that we were here ( an impression for all those that come after you).
What will that impression be?

What form will it take. A story, a diary, a photograph, a new idea, an invention, a message or

hope, a new line of thought ( Philosophy), everything is worthwhile to someone else


Determine what legacy that you wish to leave behind ..tangible or not.
