STOP WAITING FOR FRIDAY…

STOP WAITING FOR FRIDAY

For summer
For the new job
For the smaller waistline
For the bigger bank balance
For the knight in shining armour
For the perfect day, or moment…

There is no such thing as that.

Stop waiting ladies, just stop.
Start living and let the good stuff find you on the road.
It will.

Although you won’t notice it half as much because guess what, you will be busy living.

And loving.
And not waiting.

Those who wait… wait.

Those who live, live.

You may even find, that the thing you were waiting for, oh so very patiently, is no longer even important to you…

Fridays come and go, hardly noticed, when life is full of joy and fun.

Summer is wonderful but winter is too, when your eyes are trained on the positive.

Your waistline means nothing when your priorities settle in the right order and you realise it’s all about health, so that you can live even more loudly than before.

Money? Money is the means to an end, it comes and it goes. Let it come, let it go and find ways to feel joy regardless of its bounty.

The moment you realise you can climb your own way out of the tower that put yourself in – go out and have fun with your friends – is the moment the need for a knight becomes redundant. Princesses can slay dragons too…

And if it’s the perfect moment you are waiting for?
You will wait in vain, like that princess in a tower.
For perfection my friend, is a myth.

Stop waiting….

For summer For the new job For the smaller waistline For the bigger bank balance For the knight in shining armour For the perfect day, or moment...Donna Ashworth
