Wishing and Hoping

What are you waiting for?

For me, I’ve been waiting for a free moment to do the artistic things that I’m passionate about because I get so caught up in the day to day details.  I get caught in the stay-above-water game and, when I don’t stop myself ,I think I’m a little bit of a workaholic.  I wait to do all my living on Saturday, except I find myself making choices:  do I relax, or spend time with friends, or go out… and the list goes on and on.  Sunday is pre-Monday, so I have to plan for the week since there often isn’t enough time get everything done once the alarm goes off on Monday and the week’s race is on.  So, the waiting starts again.

So, will good things come if I wait?

The truth in the phrase “good things come to those who wait” really depends on what you think waiting means.  I’ve started to re-evaluate the waiting in my life.

I’ve waited because I thought that maybe time would effortlessly rearrange it self for me sometime in the future and I would suddenly be filled with free time despite still having the same number of obligations.  Now. I see that waiting without action is useless.  It is fear disguising itself because, the truth is, I’ve been unsure about myself and nervous to put my voice out there and let people read what I have to write.

But, I can’t wait without trying and still expect to be a successful writer.  There’s a different kind of waiting that is calling my name – the waiting that comes with persistence and practice.  I believe that there are good things to come if I try.
