Wait and See

Admittedly, I am a seasoned waiter.

I've been waiting to be inspired to write another blog (therefore the 2 month delay)- a flaw that shows up all too much in my life; waiting to buy til its better, waiting to open up when its easier, waiting to decide til there's a sign....

We all spend time waiting- a lot of it explainable- waiting for our name to be called, waiting on our food to cook;) , waiting on the plane to land. There are times though when we dance between waiting and avoiding; we wait for it to get better or worse, we wait for a better job, for the weather to get better, for prices to go down and I wonder how many months and years accumulate in this time of inaction...As it has been said, waiting is an action- its choosing to do nothing.

Today I was not inspired but I thought I would simply choose to do more...and stop waiting so much. Patience still dances around somewhere between the waiting and I'm not sure exactly how to know when I'm being inactive and when I'm learning patience ...guess I'll just have to wait to find out. ;)

The opposite of talking isn't listening. The opposite of talking is waiting. Fran Lebowitz

For a nation which has an almost evil reputation for bustle, bustle, bustle, and rush, rush, rush, we spend an enormous amount of time standing around in line in front of windows, just waiting. Robert Benchley
