Waiting in Vain?

Life... ah life. We think we have a clue, we think we are on a sure and true path only to have Life say uh uh uh, not so fast little girl. The older I get the more I have to laugh at the fact we actually think we EVER figure anything out. I think we gain a little discernment, a little wisdom, which let's face it, has a lot to do with just keeping our mouths shut and seeing what happens. You can't out think, out plan, out maneuver Life. It just happens, and whether it's part of a greater scheme or a jingle jangle bumbling fumbling mess, we all gotta live it, one day at a time - and we gotta trust it. I don't understand why people are asses or why bad things happen, but I do understand that love gets you through, and friends make ya smile, and there truly is ALWAYS another bend in the road.

So many of us live in fear. Fear of living true, fear of what others will think, fear of not being in control, or what we think is control. So many people hide their hearts, their intentions, their wants, that they get lost and are just swept along by Life. Life doesn't want us to do this, to be fearful. Life doesn't want us to manage our hearts, or manage the nuances of time. Life wants to be lived, and lived well - without fear. Hearts mend, bad times pass - the world will always be a little sideways, and who knows what's in store - but Life is waiting... so what are YOU waiting on?
