Are You Waiting Around?

People wait around all the time. In fact if you ask the question, “What are you doing?” or “What’s next?” the answer often comes back starting with the words “I’m waiting for …” and what follows next can be any number of things:  An idea. Inspiration. More money. A job offer. Better conditions. A sunny day. The right partner. Retirement. A phone call. Someone else to decide. The list goes on and on.

And all the while we are waiting for something to change or something to happen or an answer to our question, guess what? Life is happening. The waiting you are doing is actually not waiting at all … it’s your life.

Life Doesn’t Wait for Anything or Anybody. Life is Now.

 While you are waiting there is a whole world of opportunity around you. There are things to do, to say, to observe. There are decisions to be made, love to receive, good deeds to be done. And remember all those things you are waiting for? Truth is, some of them will never, ever happen. You might literally be wasting your life away, and missing what’s happening in this very moment, as you are waiting for something that might never, could never, will never be.

Skip the Holding Pattern and Take Flight

So the next time you find yourself waiting for something or somebody, make sure you aren’t putting your life on hold. Instead decide to do something meaningful and purposeful – something that makes you feel alive – even if it’s only for a few minutes. Don’t waste the moments of your precious life. And by the way… a nap, a shared smile, or playing a game with your child are all great uses of your time while you’re ‘waiting’. Wait no more!
