To that, I say, AMEN.
It seems very few things in life happen in the time frame we want, plan or hope for. We make plans, the universe laughs. Each experience we have - the good, the bad, the ugly - prepares us for all of the adventures awaiting us.
The word YET is such a powerful word; equally powerful is NOT YET. For me, this week (fine, year) has really been about living in the moment. But isn't there a part of us that always wonders what's coming next? It's the "yet" moments. For example, I want TGHR to have it's own building, but I don't have enough money saved, yet.
How many people want to move forward with parts of their lives, but they can't until:
- they have enough money (and will we ever?)
- they have the time to do so
- the kids are headed to college (that's a HUGE yet)
- this or that bill is paid off
- they lose 10 pounds
It's the ever popular carrot, dangling in front of our faces. I get all the yets. I've used them myself. Sometimes in life, we really DO have to just deal with our circumstances and when the time is right for something to happen, according to all the reading I've done, it will happen.
I love my friends attitude. Go forth with a smile and make what you can make happen while anticipating the yet to come.
Here's to all our YETs. xo
But, I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday
An' I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time
Here I go again
