I'm in the Waiting Place

"The Waiting Place…for people just waiting.

Waiting for a 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.

Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance. Everyone is just waiting." - Dr. Seuss

No, that's not for me, but somehow that's where I find myself. Wanting so much and not having enough.

So here I am waiting for something I really want and worried that I won't get it. And the worst part about it is that I can't really talk about it until it actually happens because it's work related. If it doesn't happen then I have to continue working on getting what I want.

On a good note I started running again today and I am running again tomorrow. I have to get back in the saddle and it's been a month and a week since my surgery so I should be okay now. I did really well today so I'm pretty optimistic. It was a good start back.

On another note, but maybe not a good one, I turn 41 on Friday. It's time to revise my goals. One thing I haven't worked on is my novel. I just finished reading my first novel on my Kindle and I loved it. I'm ready to get my book edited so I can publish it electronically. That is my goal this week, to edit, edit, edit.

That said, when I start editing I may not blog as much on here. I'll probably only blog over on skirt! for a while since I am going to be swamped. We shall see.

With that I leave you with part of one of my favorite Nike quotes.

"Too often we are scared. Scared of what we might not be able to do. Scared of what people might think if we tried. We let our fears stand in the way of our hopes....You have nothing to lose and everything everything everything to gain. JUST DO IT."- Barry Sanders
