I'm Waiting

Monday, September 12, 2011

We wait for this and we wait for that,
Maybe while I'm waiting, I'll put on a hat.

I wait for my Doctor who's always on the run,
I sit in the waiting room, and that's no fun.

I wait on my Dentist and lots of Doctors too,
This is no fun when I have other things to do.

While I wait on my friends, my kid and my cat,
I hear a faint sound, Mom do you know where my other shoe is at?

I wait for my laundry as it prepares to stop,
No time for anything , not even to shop,

As my dryer is running, I can hardly wait,
I wish it would hurry or I'm going to be late.

As I wait for a cab to come my way,
I stand on the curb and start to sway.

I wait in line because I want some food,
You know this doesn't put me in a very good mood.

I wait for the mailman to bring me good news,
Maybe while I'm waiting I'll take a little snooze.

As I wait for a call from a friend that would make my day,
I am not always sure what I'm going to say.

Waiting makes us humble, that's what they say,
Well, I've been on the top of the humble list from the very first day.

    I too am waiting, but not sure for what ://I, like you, wait for the same things you have posted here. But my waiting has paralyzed me from living life to it's fullest! I'm waiting on my husband to make time for me, waiting on my kids to understand, grow up or simply realize that what I do is for them is out of love. I wait for the time to go to work, the perfect work schedule to allow me to exercise...... I'm waiting! And as I wait I sit in self pitty wishing, hoping that someone, ANYONE would notice me, notice that I am alone in my life and I need for someone to put me first. Days, weeks, months and years have gone by, and still I wait, and as I wait my body is getting bigger, and bigger, and hope is less and less......
    THEN one day I got a letter from God (it's a Face Book App that sends daily encouraging notes to my page) and this is what it said.....
    "...God wants you to know that it's time to STOP going through the motions of living, and START living. Are you willing to do that now? Or are you going to wait until all life energy drains out of you and your loved ones who are trying to support you at this very moment? You were not born to follow rules and regulations. Living starts with dreaming. So dream, dream friend, and let dreams show you the path to your bliss."

    That is the moment I decided to stop waiting on those around me to give me my life! That was the moment I knew that If I wanted to live life then I would have to stop waiting on others to make my dreams come true. I knew at that moment that if it was to be, it had to be up to me!!! That is the day I joined SparkPeople! I stopped waiting on the people around me and decided that I was going to take control of my situation and take care of ME!!! To date I have lost 12.2 lbs! The loss is wonderful, But the hope I have gained is BETTER!
    Thank you for your post, I needed to be reminded today why I'm here in the first place.... Thank You

    You should go into the writing business. I like that article. Waiting is not easy for any of us. If I'm going to be sitting, I take a book. We can't do that in a line.
