No More Waiting

I have done a lot of waiting in my life.
I have waited to travel.
I have waited to compete.
I have waited to run my next marathon.
I have waited for sublime happiness.
I have waited to have children.
I have waited for someone to love me unconditionally.
I have waited to enjoy life in a new way.

I am too old to wait anymore. I met someone recently who drastically changed my outlook on waiting. Why should I have to wait for someone else in my life in order to do something I want to do? For the first time ever, I’m going to do the things I want to do. I took a small step for mankind and went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, alone on Christmas day. I know it is silly and not a big deal in any way, but half the fun of seeing a movie in the theater is turning to your friend/boyfriend/whatever when something amazing happens and sharing the ‘What the fuck just happened’ face. I missed doing that SO many times, but I loved that I finally saw the movie and didn’t wait to have someone to go with. If I waited, then I may never have seen it in the theater.
And regarding the movie, holy fuck, what the fuck just happened!?!?
That movie was bomb and I can’t wait to see it again.

I have also changed my outlook on my time frame on these things in my life. It isn’t too late.
It isn’t too late to travel.
It isn’t too late to run my next marathon.
It isn’t too late to find sublime happiness.
It isn’t too late to have children.
It isn’t too late for someone to love me unconditionally.
It isn’t too late to enjoy my life in a new way.

No more waiting. It isn’t too late for me anymore.

  1. i can’t tell you how much your posts have been speaking to me lately. I’m so inspired by your words and outlook. I’m not there yet…but you make me think it’s possible.

  2. Yes WTF just happened!! That’s how I was. I feel like I need to sleep a few days to let it sink in. That’s how much I love Star Wars and the new one…
    Life is to short to wait for anything you want to do. You’ll find what you are looking for when you stop waiting.
