I can’t wait till…..
I recently caught myself saying this WAY to much. “I can’t wait till….” is a happiness killing phrase. It causes you to look over what’s happening now and puts too much power in what may happen in the future.
I realized as I was putting the “15” on my son’s birthday cake that the last 15 years have sped by. I have so many amazing memories, but I also have a lot of “I can’t wait till’s”. It’s like the Adam Sandler movie where he has a remote that allows him to fast forward through the unpleasant parts of life. You miss the good stuff too. And sometimes the annoying stuff actually is the good stuff.
So the next time you catch yourself saying “I can’t wait till…”. Stop. And enjoy what you are dealing with.
