Are you Waiting for the Rest of Your Life? Photo and poem from Joan Ellen Gage

Waitint for the rest of your life quote JEG framed

Waiting for the Rest of Your Life

 

Are you content in your comfort zone,

keeping within familiar parameters?

Do you wear blinders to keep your

focus fixed in front of you?

Intent on trudging the well-worn path,

are you afraid of taking that first step

toward the rest of your life?

People have a choice these days.

We don’t have to continue in the

career rut that we created, or

the temporary situation that

became our existence. Our other life, a

parallel universe, if you will, where we

wait, and deny ourselves our lives.

Have you considered a change?

Will you continue to struggle

against the potential current of your own will?

Have you encased your true self in a

web of denial so tight, that your

soul has given up hope of escape

into the realm of life’s possibilities?

How long have you pondered

doing something radical, or

potentially magical, empowering?

Are you afraid of the consequences of your

action, or inaction?

How long will it take?  How long will you

wait for the rest of your life?

How long?  How long?  . . .
