Today I acknowledge that I am not in position to judge what mistakes anyone is making or what lessons anyone needs to learn.

But really what's happening is we are conditioning ourselves to get what we want now, all the time. This mindset robs us of the lessons that waiting can teach us, causing us to miss out on the slow but important stuff of life.
