"Grow Yourself Complete"


I am here waiting on a delivery of a new range; stovetop and oven.  It is 23 minutes past the said arrival time and I do not know when they will show.

We did call them and they said another hour and a half.  What?!?!?!   oh my!   (deep sigh)

Life is a lot about waiting.  Like the one Dr. Seuss’ book, “Oh, The Places You’ll Go

“Waiting for the train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No or waiting for their hair to grow.  Everyone is just waiting.”

That certainly was my very favorite book that I first bought when I found out I was pregnant almost 22 years ago.  I read it to my ‘belly’ and thereafter.  I gave my beautiful, fabulous daughter a limited special edition of it for her high school graduation.  This book really excites me!  lol   I’m not really sure how she feels about it!?!

So, I wait.

I have learned waiting can be a beautiful thing.  As I choose to use the time doing something I wouldn’t normally do, the time can be used very effectively and efficiently.

I am typing this blog that I would not have done.  I can choose to just bring awareness within myself and to my breath.  I can take a scan of my body and see where things stand.  I can pay attention to my thoughts and see where things stand (hoot).  I can stretch.  I can listen to music. I can reach out to a loved one.  I can get something done that was on my ‘dread to do’ list.  No, I don’t really have one of them but it sounds like a good idea just now.

Or, I can choose to get angry, disappointed, frustrated and worked up.

We always have a choice on how we respond to any given situation.

May you choose your best and most self-loving choice as often as possible when you find yourself waiting….  And, you will find yourself waiting!
