    How would you describe the meaning of this English Idiom?
    Good things come to those who wait.

    Re: wait until things are getting better

    What do you mean by "describe" it? Do you mean that you want us to explain/define it?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Was your title your attempt to reword the idiom?
