I've spent a great deal of my life waiting.
I waited as a child, not wanting to experience things for myself first, wanting to watch others try before I did.
I waited and held off from being my outgoing, bubbly self in junior
high and high school because I wasn't sure how people would respond.
took me nine years to graduate from college because I didn't know which
major to choose - I waited until the perfect one came along. And it was the perfect one. But I could've found it earlier.
waited to graduate because I didn't know if I'd get married halfway
through. I wasn't sure how much I'd be able to attend after getting
I waited to graduate because I didn't have the money every semester and didn't want to get in debt. (Don't regret that one!)
I waited to start writing because I wasn't sure if I REALLY wanted to do it, or if I'd be good or not.
I waited to fully relax as a single woman because I wasn't sure when I'd meet the right guy and would need to be "impressive."
I waited for HIM to say, "I love you" first. (Another one I don't regret.)
I waited to focus on writing after we decided to have kids because I wasn't sure when they would come. (Took eight months)

And you know what?
I'm through with waiting.
going to be the best wife, the best mother, and the best author I can
be NOW. I'm going to put the most important things first: my hubby, my
baby, and my writing every day and let everything else fall into place.
I know what the Lord wants me to do. And I'm ready to do it NOW.
I'm through with waiting. I really am. It's time NOW to take myself seriously!
What's holding you back? What are you waiting for?
