Today I'm linking up to Lisa-Jo aka the gypsy mama, who chooses a topic every Friday and writes for five minutes.
Only five minutes
Ready. Set. Go......
If one word could some up what I think most people rely on in life, it would be waiting. In my own life, I know that is true to the very core. I wonder why that is?
Every where you look, it seems someone is waiting for something or a confirmation about something before moving forward. In thinking about this for only a couple of seconds, in my own life this is true too. I have heard myself say countless of times, "when I lose weight", "when I feel better", "when we have more money",
"waiting on vacation, to enjoy life and rest", "when, when, when....wait, wait, wait".......and in all honesty, the when never happens, but the wait has become a crutch to actually stop an action. True.
Think about it, I know several people, and I have to include myself in this one who have literally "waited" most of their lives for better times, better jobs, better everything to come and it just does not. The reason is not that it was not attainable, or deserved, but the simple act of staying in the waiting mode left them in limbo and nothing ever changed or became different.
I think it is time to stop waiting and start doing. If only a small step in the direction you are wanting to go. I guess I am speaking to myself here the most. There are appropriate times for being patient and waiting on something to change or be different, but if you are feeling like that is all you ever do, is wait.....well.... Think about it......the waiting needs to be over, it should be time to "do" something to set your life in motion once again. "Hear that self?"
Wow....that was a quick 5 minutes this week! Have a great weekend....do something.....don't wait on it!!!
