I never thought I was one to wish my life away. I remind myself to “be in this day” and “be present” but lately I see that in bits and bites I do wish my life away. I want this week to be over and I want Friday to come, and I want the big project due Sunday to have happened already. I want the difficult conversation to have happened already and the new person to have learned his job now. I want me to learn my new computer —no process, no timing. I want it to be later today, tonight, Friday, next month. I want the deadline to have come, be met and be gone.
Every time I say “I can’t wait until…” I am wishing my life away.
