Permission to Wait

I’m new to this blogging thing.  THANKS, in advance, for your understanding.

For those of you who regularly receive my monthly e.newsletter, you may have noticed one didn’t arrive last month.  Truth is, I was just plain feeling awful.  So I gave myself permission to let some things go.  One was the e.newsletter.  If you missed the WORD for last month, here it is – 

The July word is WAIT.

The next time you feel pressured to choose, act or react – WAIT.
Wait
before speaking

Wait
until the mud settles and your answer is clear.Let THEM wait.

Let’s face it, things happen when they happen.  IT’S not up to US.  So

wait.

While you’re waiting, realize that waiting doesn’t prevent you from being IN the moment.  On the contrary.  Waiting is being where you are as IT IS.  Waiting is not fretting, planning or negotiating. Waiting is what IS.

Wait with patience – avoiding tapping your finger or toes.
Wait with hope – overshadowing you fear.
Wait with breath – not exaggerated sighs.
Wait in calm – knowing All Shall be Well (honest!).

So the next time you hear someone calling for a WAITER – let it be you. 

           WHAT KIND OF A WAITER ARE YOU?
