As I’ve grown older (and hopefully wiser) I have realized that I spend most of my life waiting. Waiting in ques at supermarkets, waiting for my turn to speak, waiting for someone else to finish up so that I can have my moment in the spotlight, waiting for my kids to sleep on their own beds, waiting for others to see my potential… The list is endless. So I have now decided to stop waiting, that it is OK to sometimes step in front and demand attention. And that it is also OK to give up and accept that change is not always inevitable, and that sometimes going with the flow is just easier and healthier.
I will be the first to admit that I don’t always know when to stay my hand and when to dive in headfirst, hopefully it will come soon. Until then I can see that my ego might be bruised and battered:)
