Waiting for Instructions (Don’t Wait!)

Guilty.

Sometimes I just sit around waiting for someone to tell me what to do. Waiting for a deadline to approach, or for the next big thing to hover over me like Godzilla before I’m forced to jump into action.

Worse, I see people who appear to be waiting their whole lives for a sign. Going through the motions, exerting the least effort possible to get by.

I don’t want to just “get by.” This is our opportunity to seize the moment, relish the experience, taste the chocolate, breathe deeply and live.

Hey, you out there waiting for instructions: it’s time to SHAKE THINGS UP!  Make something happen. Don’t be a bystander in your own story. Take a chance, make a change.

Or as my brother said once, Life. Be there.
