What are we waiting for?

For so long I found myself waiting,

waiting for a better life,

waiting for more money,

waiting until I have got this mindfulness thing a bit more,

waiting until I am little older and wiser

waiting for the clouds to clear,

waiting for peace and calm,

waiting for something, anything to happen,

waiting before I can fully live this life.

What a false illusion. In waiting for all the cards to line up perfectly, I missed living.

I missed the fact that I was breathing, awake, alive, vital.

I missed the fact that life isn’t always perfect and that imperfection is ok.

I missed the smell of fresh coffee (my favourite),

I missed the birds singing

I missed so many sunsets.

Words cannot adequately describe it, all that is left is this.

I’ve given up waiting, I hope you will do the same.

    What a blessing it is that you awoke, that I too awoke, and that what was in the past, or is in the future is irrelevant, because those of us that are here have breath in the now.??

      Hi Cate, thank you so much for your comment and for dropping by here to read my ramblings. So true, a blessing to awake and realise there is only this moment, right here right now, we can just let the past and the future be just what it is. Take care, have a lovely evening.
