Waiting around for something that’s not going to happen.

Clinging on to hope

Not facing up to reality nor going out to meet it

It’s this nowhere place

Like purgatory

The maybe zone

The I’ll let you know zone

The not sure zone

Like waiting around at an airport after clearing customs, but before boarding

No going forward and no going back.

Counting on someone or something else

For something around you to change

For someone to make a decision for you

To force you into action,

For someone to come and save you

Not realizing that, no one is coming. That it’s all on you.

You either will it, or you don’t.

You either move, or get left behind

You open your hand, or keep a clenched fist

You either live proactive, or remain reactive.

There’s no point waiting around for something to change, if you yourself are not willing to change

If you yourself are not willing to do anything different.

Waiting in vain, is allowing your life to slip away

And the harder you try and hold on, the more it gets away from you – 

like a fistful of sand.

So sometimes it makes sense to take a leap of faith

To let go

To take it upon yourself to make things happen,

The alternative is that you look down in a year or two and find yourself in exactly the same spot.

That might be OK for some, but is it OK for you?

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.
  • Symphony of Sadness
    There’s a great symphony in sadnessA million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt. Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason.But incomprehensible in...
  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
