I'm waiting for the bright green of newly budding leaves. I'm waiting for the first signs of flowers. Oh and before I get too carried away into the future, I'm even waiting for the energy to take down my Christmas tree! Yes people it's still in my living room and I just need to get hubby to haul all of the storage buckets up from the basement for me.
I'm waiting for other things too. Like my hair to go silvery white, just like my Mom's was. I'm 2 years away from being 60 years old, haven't I earned the right for beautiful white hair?? But noooooo, I take after my Dad's side. I have only a few strands of it here and there mixed in with my brunette. I want silver! I'm WAITING!
I'm waiting for the sun to pop back out from behind a solid bank of cloud that we've had for 2 days. Unless it's hotter than heck summertime weather (when I hate the sun and refer to it as "that f*cking fireball in the sky"), I want the sunshine! It makes me feel energized and centered. When it's cloudy for too long I feel sleepy, groggy, devoid of energy, and almost "closed in" if that makes sense. I do love a good summer storm, but hey it's winter and I want my sunshine back.
So I wait.......
And where is my morning coffee? The coffee pot is in the dishwasher. So naturally I'm waiting for the dishwasher cycle to finish too.
But I have to admit, amidst all of this waiting I'm doing so fairly patiently if I do say so myself. I've been known for being impatient at times (just you shut your cake hole sister Pammie) but even she would most likely admit that I AM getting the hang of some of that patience stuff with a lot of things in this lifetime full of lesson learning. Maybe I'm even waiting for more of that too, but that's footwork that needs to be done, rather than just w.a.i.t.i.n.g. for it to happen.
This could go on forever if you really think about it. I'm waiting for my 3 weeks vacation in September. (I start the countdown for that every year on the day I go back to work) And I'm waiting for that big lottery win. I'm waiting for my oh-so-far-off retirement!!
But it isn't doom and gloom you know. I'm happy enough. And my next post will be of a more "in the now" and "living in the present" theme, promise.
You'll see, just you wait.
