Are you standing in “the waiting place”?

‘…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.’ – Dr Suess, Oh the Place’s You’ll Go.

Don’t wait around. Waiting just leads you unproductively closer to death and there is no point in dying without a life lived fully. I am convincing myself that I would rather struggle with something exciting than sit on the couch and be comfortable and coast smoothly to the grave. Morbid? Yea… but we all gunna kick it some day!

Read this book. Read it twice. Go and buy a cool poster, or make one with a quote. This book is golden and helping me through some real “moments”.

“Out there things can happen, and frequently do,
To people as brainy and footsy as you.
And when things start to happen, don’t worry, don’t stew.
Just go right along, you’ll start happening too!”
― Dr Suess, Oh the Places You’ll Go

This is the face of someone who is tired of things being ‘so damned hard’ and who is relying on a Dr Suess book to ‘un-slump’ her. “When you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.” -Dr Suess, Oh The Places You’ll Go.
