Always Waiting Patiently

Patience is such a complex word and even more difficult to obtain. Kids today have very little understanding of this word with all the instant gratification they receive. There are so many Internet and social media sites that can provide us with information at the click of our fingertips.
Every generation will have their stories about waiting to hear results of something that interested them. When I watched wrestling matches with Warrior, my impatience got the better of me. I would be on edge like any real fan waiting to see what would happen.
I can still vividly recall April 2, 1990 and how hard that day or even the whole week was for me. Being at an all girls high school was impossible hearing about a topic like WrestleMania. My brain felt like it would explode! 😳😬
True fans had to wait until the weekend to see results of any big significant match. They would only show the last minute or so of a match, maybe some still photo shots but that was all. I was almost sure Warrior won since it was called the Ultimate Challenge after all! It was about time to dethrone Hulk Hogan. If you wanted a keepsake, you’d have to wait until the latest issue of the magazine came out. There was no texting your friends or googling to find out anything.
This also relates to lots of other programming back in my years growing up. Some cartoons came in after school but most of the good ones were saved until Saturday morning which was also WWF time. Cartoons are on all the time now or kids can watch them online.
It is amazing to me how different things are in our culture today and yet everything becomes relative. People who were fans of WWE years ago can’t wait to watch with their kids and share stories of their experiences. I am certain patience comes up in one way or another regarding how we were constantly on pins and needles waiting to hear anything. I know that’s how it was for me.
Despite the many changes of today, kids still need to be taught patience despite the situation. Adults struggle with this too since it is our whole life. Even though it seemed more difficult being a fan of WWE back then in regards to waiting, I wouldn’t change a thing.
My emotions were always a wreck but it taught me how patience takes endurance. Being fans of Warrior’s means we endured through it all and continue today. I was shown by the Universe how to be patient with my writing and they sent me someone whom I couldn’t refuse. After all, us warriors have waited far too patiently!!!

I'm a wife, mom of 2 and have always been a huge fan of Ultimate Warrior despite his passing. I created this blog to share my stories relating to him that happened years ago and some are continuing today with his Spirit alive and well! I hope some fans out there relate and enjoy my blog!!! Check out my book Spirit and Belief on how Warrior influenced me in spirit. It is filled with humor, family stories, psychic terms, following my intuition, and how anyone has natural abilities we can tap into or get discovered.
