Waiting patiently for God to express His will. Take this opportunity, then, to practice the virtue of μακροθυμία.

Does your present situation prevent you from cultivating the fruits of the Holy Spirit, does it prevent you from pursuing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and discipline? Against these there is no law.

Wait patiently, then, while God spells out His will for you and accept His will while still cultivating the same fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Do not worry, then, for the fruits will grow in the proper soil in their season: cultivate the garden that the Lord assigned you and accept the wage on offer, and yours will be a soul at peace with itself and with the creation, playing your part in accordance with your talents, in proportion to your faith.
