I bet if I asked around, I would find out a lot of people are waiting for that 'something' that will make them feel complete, fulfilled, successful, happy... And I wouldn't be surprised if one of such 'somethings' is now on your mind as you read this. For some of these people, much like me, they have let that 'something' consume them so much that they have put the rest of their lives on hold, waiting for that "something" before they can start to live the way they ought to.
Truth is, no matter what 'something' is to you, it is only one aspect of your life. And you cheat yourself out of all that life has to offer when you place so much of your life's worth on 'something' happening. And for some, because of how much they have put that 'something' on a pedestal, when they finally get it, they still don't get the sense of completeness, fulfillment, success or happiness that they thought it would bring.
I have mentioned in a previous post that someone told me 2 years ago to not let my 'something' take over my life so much that I don't enjoy life and be happy because time waits for no one. And a couple of months ago, as I rang in a new birthday, I looked back and saw how right that person was because looking back at the past few years of my life, I saw someone who spent their time waiting... And I decided, as I encourage you now, to stop waiting and start living life to the fullest.
