Most of the mistakes I have made in life is as a result of reckless haste and being impatient.
I do not know about you, for me waiting has never been my strong point. I think in life we as humans are created to wait for things to happen, but patience is something most of us struggle with.
Impatience most of the time does not yield positive fruit, the fruit would either be unripe or no fruit at all. Waiting for answers has a way of growing and strengthening our character and preparing us for the future, it surely grows our patience.

When a child is born he or she is fed milk, as they grow older they are served pureed food, then they learn to eat solid food. What new food do you need to learn how to eat to be able to move on from baby milk?
We have to grow and be ready for the new things set aside for us, so we
