Hurry Up and Wait!

“Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite. Or waiting around for Friday night or waiting perhaps for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil or a better break or a string of pearls or a pair of pants or a wig with curls or another chance. Everyone is just waiting.” ~Dr. Seuss

We wait ‘for our ship to come in’, to meet our soul mate, for things to calm down, for our children to grow up, for our yearly bonus, for the returned phone call or email, for the bus, or for someone else to make a decision so we can make ours. We wait for the economy to get better, or to find the better job or for our vacation days.  Funny thing about all this waiting is that we’re all in a hurry yet find ourselves waiting!

Waiting is an interesting concept to explore. In terms of your energy, it implies your energy is in the future or dependant on something (or someone) that’s outside of you before you can move forward. While you are waiting, for whatever reason, your energy, creativity and that part of your awareness is not  available to you in the present.  In fact, while you are waiting it is possible that your creativity stops altogether!

Take a moment to consider how much of your energy and creativity is caught up in waiting for something else to happen. It may only be in one area of your life you are waiting but it still takes away from how much energy you have to create in other areas as well. Becoming conscious of how much of your energy is not here and now in the present is great information because then you can call it back thus having MORE energy to create with! 🙂

There is great value to having your energy and ability to create. Think of it in terms of having monetary value. How much of your money is out there that you don’t have access to in the present? Wouldn’t you like to use it now for something? Your energy and creativity are so valuable that there is no monetary comparison. YOU are PRICELESS! There is  no need to spend your time, attention and energy waiting when all creating happens in the present.

Having conscious awareness of those areas in your life where your energy is tied up and waiting allows you to shift where it is and bring it back to you. So… What are you waiting for? Call back your energy! No time like the present to get that juicy creativity flowing again!~Shine Your Light Debbie

One thought on “Hurry Up and Wait!

  1. Excellent post, Debbie! So many of us think we have to wait until everything fits in the perfect scenario that we envision before we DO what we want to do. Or need to do. And for some, they are stuck waiting all their lives…

    Let’s keep moving!! No waiting! 🙂
