I am Cranky today! I don’t know why, but I surely surely am.
The lyrics to this song struck me the other day.
“And you say,”Be still, my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in”
Don’t you understand?
I already have a plan
I’m waiting for my real life to begin”
So many people (including myself) do this, or have done this (me!) I wasted so many years just sort of treading water, and waiting for something to change. Waiting to see what my life would be. Then one day it was the proverbial light bulb and I realized this IS my life. I started to notice what I had, instead of waiting to see what was coming next. What I have right now is so much more important than what might be coming along next week or next year. I also stopped saying things like, I’ll wait until the kids are older, or I’ll wait until I have more money, or I’ll wait until …whatever! It’s not that I did the things, but I stopped making them things on my to do list. That probably doesn’t make any sense. I just didn’t want any more things that I was waiting for. I have what I have, and I am accepting of it. I have more than I will ever need.
