What Are You Waiting For?

We spend so much of our lives waiting:

  • We wait to grow up
  • We wait to graduate from college
  • We wait for the bus, train, plane
  • We wait to order food or get a seat at a restaurant
  • We wait on hold
  • We wait in lines for events, auditions, jobs

Some of these waits are unavoidable. But too often, we wait until life is “ideal” enough to do things – to get married or start a family, to quit our job and start that entrepreneurial journey we dream of, to buy something special.

Sometimes, you just have to go for it. It may never feel right until after you do! Sometimes, as the saying in my kitchen goes, you just have to “Enjoy life, this is not  a dress rehearsal.”

You have to stop waiting. You have to jump. You have to stop staring down, wondering – you’ll only get the answer when you take the leap.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s Monday. This week, don’t wait. Do something daring and go for it.
