When is it time to accept what is? In other words, you have made your bid to the Universe. The Universe is taking its time (I really prefer "God" here), but, yet, nothing has manifested yet. So, where do you draw the line?
I know you are supposed to not think about what we have asked for, but we are human, and we do think about what we want and need.
Here is a favorite quote of mine from The Big Book:
"And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation, some fact of my life- unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life's terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and my attitudes."
What do you think? What is the place of acceptance?

The essence of your question is time a recent A-H daily quote
There in lies the acceptance.
