Me Want It but Me Wait

I viewed a seminar today on the development of self-regulation which, in part, is the process of learning to delay gratification. (the Cookie Monster video was part of the presentation) One of the signs of healthy growth and maturity in a child is their ability to learn to wait, to not act upon their impulses.

I couldn’t help but reflect upon the culture we live in and the constant message we receive of “having everything…and having it now!” Patience, stillness, waiting, existing in the present moment without feeding an insatiable desire to have more isn’t learned or desired.

To pause and believe we have enough; freeing our minds, bodies, spirits from the hunger for feasting and instead enjoying the blessing of being alive is vital as we journey the path to wisdom and peace.

blessings,
