Are you playing the waiting game? Waiting for something to happen or change before you can move your life forwards?
Waiting for an ex to get out of your hair? For money to come in? Divorce to be finalised? Move house? Find a job? Someone else to have an epiphany and change? Your soul mate to magically appear in your life? Win the lottery (wouldn’t that be nice!)?
Something, anything but whatever it is you are just waiting.You can see where you want to be but you simply can’t do anything about it.
I get it. I’ve been there and quite frankly it wasn’t a comfortable place to be. It feels like being stuck between a rock and a hard place. I was pissed off more than I was happy. I was frustrated and I couldn’t understand why all the things I wanted were happening to people around me and yet not to me.
Life seemed so unfair.
And yes, I will admit I got jealous too. Jealous of the friend who separated, divorced, found the love of her life and had a baby whilst I was still kissing a few random toads and trying to get my divorce finalised. Jealous of someone whose business took off whilst I was still working my backside off yet still counting every penny. Angry with my ex for all the crappy things he said and did. And a whole lot more.
And the only place it got me was more pissed off and even more of the sense that I was a failure. I JUST WANTED TO MOVE ON – why was it so darned hard?
I felt like I was constantly living in a murky fog. Wading through treacle every day. And I did not feel good.
And then one day, after much soul searching, reading, learning and training I finally got it. The reality is that change begins with you. Deep on the inside. Not just on the surface. A new hairdo might make you feel good but it’s not going to do the inner work.
The only person you can change is you. Love comes from within you. Happiness starts with you.
Time doesn’t stand still, your life isn’t standing still. Life is happening all around you and the longer you wait for it to get better, the more you are missing out on the now. So even if you are waiting for something to happen which is out of your control, you can still start working on you.
And that’s when the magic starts to happen.
The way that the energy of the universe works is in response to what is going on inside of you. Just like when you throw a stone into a pool and you watch the ripples move outwards, that is how your energy vibrates into the world.
And what we give out we usually get back.
So if your head, your heart and your main focus is based on fear, anger, bitterness, blame, hate, why has all this happened to me and all the other stuff that I went through too, then sadly the universe tends to deliver you more of that crap.
But that makes the flip side incredibly exciting. Think of all the changes you can start creating while you are still waiting for the practical things to get sorted. Imagine what shifts could happen if you could start thinking differently. It’s mind boggling!! And it’s SO powerful.
So get out of your own way. Stop making excuses and don’t wait for it just to happen, do something positive today.
Life is about the dance itself, not about the moment when the music stops.
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi
