There are times when life is at a standstill - the ball not being our your court. Standstill is defined as
a state characterized by absence of motion or of progress. It is truly a time of waiting.and waiting is not always easy.
Practice patience by the day, hour or minute.
Focus on Other Things
By changing our focus we can hold off the waiting item. It no longer holds such a power over our mind.
Do Something Fun.
Make cookies, listen to your favorite music, take a walk around your neighborhood.
While your project or life may be on a standstill, you don't have to be. Make this time a time of opportunities instead of a time of waiting.
