I was originally going to share a different Peace Perspective. But when I saw this one on the She Reads Truth website, I had to re-write because this quote fit so much better.
I’m currently single, I go on dates occasionally, but none of the dates have resulted in a conversation or decision to date exclusively.
Sometimes I get frustrated. I have plenty of friends who are dating, engaged, married, having babies, etc. And I’m not working through that cycle.
But that doesn’t mean I’m wasting time. I’m not sitting around waiting for someone to choose me. I’m doing what I want. Working towards my own goals.
The things I’m working on aren’t distractions and they aren’t single focused. I want to be a triathlete. I am a marathoner, but that race was tough, and I feel that by spending time on 3 sports instead of one I will have a stronger body with less injuries.
Teaching Yoga Sculpt isn’t only about getting paid (actually it has nothing to do about the money) its a place to share a one hour total body and mind workout. I love sharing the practice.
Wine Club isn’t just about the drinking. Its about learning something new, trying new things, and sitting down with people around the community for a couple hours once a month.
Blogging can be a scary thing. I’m sharing my thoughts with people I know, and people I don’t know. And there very possibly are people reading who don’t even like me.
In all of these actions the good outweighs the bad. The same can be said for waiting, the good outweighs the bad. I’m not wasting time, I’m filling my time, with experiences that help me grow as a person.
What are you waiting for? What actions are you taking to prepare yourself?
