What the hell am I waiting for?
Women wait. Men don’t wait.
We wait to buy that new dress, not until we lose five more pounds.
We wait to make plans, just in case he calls.
We wait four years to see if he will ever propose. We wait two more just because we’ve already invested four.
We wait to have babies, to make sure our career is on track.
We wait at the window, wondering when he’ll be home.
We wait to join exercise classes, travel, teach, go back to work…not until the kids are older.
When did we decide it was okay to wait?
How much living do we miss while we are waiting?
It’s time to take life off of hold for him, for them and to start living for me for us.
Life shouldn’t be what happens while you are waiting.
