I remind myself often of something Abraham-Hicks once said:
If something you want is slow to come to you, it can be for only one reason: You are spending more time focused upon its absence than you are about its presence.
That’s the most clear bit of common sense you can get, and yet it seems we can get things so easily mucked up by focusing (and complaining) about the absence of what we want rather than just focusing on what the presence of it would mean for our lives.
Yes, it sucks when something we want isn’t there yet. But we’ve got to stop focusing on that sucky bit.
If we want something in our lives, the first thing we should do is think about what our life feels like with it being there.
Pretty simple, right? That’s just a little bit of common sense,
