Impatience & Optimism
“I got no patience. And I hate waitin” – Jay-Z
I know, I know. It’s been a minute since I’ve posted. But, between juggling my studies and working with HustleOnRepeat.com, I’ve been a mix of hella busy, frustrated, unfocused and optimistic at the same time.
Frustrated because it seems I only have little pockets of time to work on what I really want to do. Unfocused because of the vortex that is social media and the 990 distractions we have to deal with on the daily. And optimistic because I’m only 6 months away from walking across that stage and being done with group projects, papers and reading that makes my eyes bleed.
You guys really don’t know how much I’m looking forward to the future these days. It’s like I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel after grinding it out for so many years. At the same time, I’m so close to the finish line I’m becoming impatient as the days seem to go by so slow, yet so fast at the same time.
Like I said awhile back, I’ve been working on being more patient these days and it’s starting to pay off. I still have a long way to go. But, at least I’m no longer expecting to build Rome in a day. I recently realized that nothing great I’ve accomplished has come overnight. Even when I was close to 6 figures by the time I was 22, I built it on a strong foundation that took months to develop. And I did it with no rush or frustration.
So, “I’ma take my time with it” and keep going, no matter how long it might be taking. Because time goes by no matter what you do. Might as well spend it wisely by doing something that will put you closer to your dreams…
P.S. Just keeping you in the loop to let you know that I’m still here and haven’t forgot about W.Coast.K. If you really want to know what I’ve been up to follow me on Twitter or Instagram @WestCoastKeish. I’m trying to be more approachable these days, so don’t hesitate to hit me up!
