July 2015 Editor's Note: The Waiting Game
I will wait until everything changes. I will wait until my appearance gets better. I will wait until I am smarter. I will wait until I am the most popular. I will wait until I have more experience. I will wait until I lose more weight. I will wait until I have more money. I will wait to have children. Any of these thoughts sound familiar? Excuses, excuses, excuses--trust me, you are not alone! I have talked to so many people, and I have come to realize that so many of us play this slow as molasses waiting game. Now having patience is one thing, but waiting on working toward your dreams due to your "current" circumstances may be where you need to throw a flag on the play, come to a draw, shake on it, and walk away. Never remain stagnant on making decisions with that awful f-bomb, "fear," in front of you. Fear can cripple you in that it will keep you from fully reaching your highest potential. You know yourself better than anyone else, and you know what you are capable of so why not replace that f-bomb and allow "faith" to lead you on your journey toward success. Sometimes taking a big jump allows you to open up your parachute and take you to places you never imagined you would be. As cliché as it sounds, it is true, "If you believe, you can achieve." Stop waiting around letting life pass you by. There is never going to be a perfect time for anything, so why not go for your own gold right here and right now? Don't you think you deserve the best? You have nothing to lose, but everything to gain. Now I am not saying "now or never," but I do know for a fact that forever is unfortunately not promised to any of us. Everything that is supposed to happen will happen. All you have to do is just start. Ready. Set. Go!
Cheering You On,
