You see, all things in life take their time to come into being or change. This applies to the growth of plants, muscle groups, internal developments, mental health, and the creation of food, so why wouldn't this apply to magic too? As above, so below....right?
If you find yourself in a situation where it seems like things are starting to turn your way, but you really want to speed things up, consider how you might go about doing this by changing your behaviors. If you find yourself in this hurry-up-and-wait pattern, stop over-focusing on your goal and instead turn that gaze inward. Stop tapping your foot with endless impatience and worry instead about how you might rise to greet the challenge instead of asking the challenge to stoop to your level.
Nature abhors a vacuum, so create one and use it to your advantage instead of worrying about the Universe doing it for you. ;)
