I used to always have this feeling like I was waiting on something to happen in my life. I wasn’t exactly sure what was supposed to happen, but I just knew something was supposed to happen.
I started feeling this way early on in life. Maybe around high school. I may have even carried that same feeling partially into college.
I didn’t quite know what it was. I just felt like something wonderful was going to happen. I was going to go places in life or maybe even someone wonderful was going to come into my life.
I didn’t know if what I was waiting for was my career or if I thought someone was just coming in on a white horse to save me. But I was just going through the motions of life waiting for that special something to happen. I anticipated it.
But one day, it finally hit me. I realized what I was waiting for.
I was waiting on myself.
All that time and I was only waiting on me.
It took that long to figure it out unfortunately, but that was it.
I realized that no one was coming in on a white horse to save me. My miracle in life wasn’t on its way.
What I realized was that if I wanted life to happen, it was my responsibility to make it happen. And this was when I realized my purpose in life. And that is all that I was waiting for.
I am the author of my story and no one else can be or ever will be. If I want something in life to happen, I have to go out there and make it happen. I realized that is is absolutely impossible to happen any other way.
Too many times have I heard other people say they are waiting for someone to save them. I hate to break it to you, but no one is coming.
There are 365 days in a year and for some reason, every year seems to pass quicker and quicker. Time isn’t stopping.
My point is that we all procrastinate doing things in life. You may procrastinate a dream that you have or you may think that the things you want in life may just fall into your lap one day and just happen. But unfortunately life doesn’t work that way.
You have to be your own hero and save yourself. They always say, “don’t blink.” And it is true because life passes you by before you know it. Life is happening today and tomorrow and the next day. Every single day is a chance to work towards your goals and create the life that you want to live. So stop waiting for things to happen and start making them happen. You hold the pen to your story. If you want something, go get. Time is ticking.
