Remember those commercials for Heinz ketchup back in the --I think-- 1980s that featured the red stuff oozing ever so slowly out of the bottle as "At Last" or "Anticipation" or some such song played over the visual?
They were clever and all ended with the tagline that Heinz is "Worth the Wait".
Some things in life certainly are:
That car you've been dying to drive.
That house you've been scrimping and saving for for years.
That perfect significant other ... after having had to have kissed so many frogs, yo. #HeOrSheIsOutThere
That beautiful baby boy after such a long, rough road to meet him. #MiracleOfLife
Shoot, even Punxsutawney Phil was worth waiting for this year, since he's declared an early spring and all. #GobblersKnobIsWhack #PoorLittleGroundhog
Just know, before you invest your precious, fragile gifts of time and commitment, whether what's finally revealed to you will be worth it at wait's end. Patience is a virtue, but so is knowing when to change lanes that just aren't moving, you dig?
When in doubt, seek counsel from your mentors, your closest confidantes, your Peeps...and that Big Guy. Suddenly, you'll know whether or not to keep sitting there, smack the bottle, or just open a new one, Capisce? #ChooseWisely #PrayForClarity #TrustYourMom
