Done Waiting

I’ve been waiting a while to write. Waiting to get thinner, have more to say, to eat better, be a better persons. The thing is: I’m DONE WAITING.


I’m done waiting, and I’m LIVING.  There is NO PERFECT TIME- it’s all perfect moments.

Look up. At my header.  I’m making changes.  I’m changing things up a bit here and write about all parts of my life, not just  healthy living.  I’m still going to be healthy, but  I’m not waiting until I lose 100, 20 pound to live.  It’s WYCWYC.

It’s time to just embrace life and LIVE.

I’ll be writing about how we will be starting the adventure of homeschooling. I’ll write about our Connecticut Bucket List of fabulous things to do in the Nutmeg State.I’ll be talking about how I’m lonely, and what I’m doing to combat that.  I’ll talk about how I feel about things, and oh, yes, Zombies. There will be Zombie Talk, and The Walking Dead. Because DARYL.

I’m going to be writing about my life, and how I’m committing to living  I’ll start with this photo of my son, Aedan, and I dancing in the middle of Dinosaur State Park with Radio Disney.  Me, with a Maleficent hat on. Getting down!

dont wait

I so smoked those 3 year olds with my awesome dance moves. I was MOVING, people. The Criss-cross thing messed me up a bit, but I had the arm thing down pat.  I ignored the bat wings flapping and just loving dancing with my son in the sunshine at a park. I lived that PERFECT moment.

I’m done waiting. I’m living. NOW. In the moment. There are SO many of THOSE PERFECT MOMENTS waiting. I’m having fun. Join me.

And if you have one, share YOUR #perfectmoment!

    I love your positive outlook! You’re absolutely right, too! Now is the time – why wait?

  2. LOVE IT and SHUT UP that you are homeschooling!? Both kids? How did I miss this?

  3. I LOVE this! We all need to just let go sometimes- although caution is a key to life- so is LIVING the darn thing!

  4. Word!! Why wait? You’re never guaranteed tomorrow. Today is the day! :)

  5. This is the second time this week I’ve seen the message to just do it now. It’s so true there is never perfect timing we should all just be doing what we want now! Great post!

  6. Good for you! I waited until I was painfully uncomfortable in my full-time before I quit to start my own business – better a little late than never, right? And yay for DARYL!! ;)

    With a wonderful husband 2 kids 1 cat and 1 baby on the way my life is full of perfect moments of course there are some clouds in way but nothing I cannot live with.

  8. Wendy. I think we are totally on the same path right now. I’m trying to jump into those awesome moments more often myself. And I’m moving so much more because of this… and I am losing weight. I want to take the kids hiking. It’s good exercise for us all but what a fun way to bond and take in nature too! Going to make sure I do it this summer, because it was on my summer bucket list last year and it didn’t happen.

    Have fun living!

  9. Time to live life is a good thing. Excellent choice.

  10. This is so true! There is no time like the present to start doing what you need to.

  11. I love this post! I have been waiting for a long time to take photos with myself and the kids for a new blog design, but it never gets done. I am never thin enough, never have the money for a design, never anything, well I am done waiting too.

  12. You are totally right about now being the perfect time! It’s all we’ve got! Way to seize the moment!

  13. Angela S says:

    I love this post! I am so glad you are embracing life and living for all it’s wonderful moments. Thanks for the inspiration.

  14. Love this quote! I keep putting off being serious about eating better and exercising, saying I will do it when XYZ happens or with ABC is over. The truth is, I need to go to doing it NOW!

  15. Yay! Great post! I call it my “effit” moment – but perfect moment is probably a little more politically correct LOL

  16. Yes! Yes! Yes! If we wait for the perfect moment… it will never come!

  17. I hope the homeschooling works out well. We thought about doing that with our son.

  18. Love this! Totally agree that it’s time to stop waiting and start doing!

  19. Great post. That’s exactly why I started running…

  20. Great post and great reminder!! Congrats on homeschooling. I did it for a year and loved it! :)

  21. What a great post! I am guilty of waiting, I need to take your inspiration and start doing!

  22. I love your reminder to live for now and not wait around!

  23. You’ll never regret living in the moment like that! I love that you are!

  24. Hey, hey! Awesome! Loving this outlook and I am hoping you can rub some of that off on me! I tend to live in “tomorrow” land where things are just so much better than they are now *uh*.

    Also wanted to wave hi, I’m your neighbor in RI and live about 1/2 mile from CT ;)

  25. I love this! It took me a long time to get to this mindset, and I slip some days, but for the most part I feel like I’m really grabbing life by the..well, you know. Good for you!

  26. carpe diem!! great outlook. our days are numbered and it’s so important to live to the fullest this day.

  27. Thank you for this post. This is just what I needed to read at this moment. I’m tired of waiting for the right moment. The time for me to take control of my life is now. It feels like the signs are being presented everywhere.

  28. A-freaking-men! Seize the day! Carpe diem! Or, as I like to join, Carpe DAY-em. LOL ;)

  29. cute post, I need to get moving, moving into a healthy exercise regiment.

  30. I agree. You only live once– so don’t waste it nor just sit there waiting. Live! Great motivation, thanks!

  31. We should always live in the moment!

  32. Completely agree. We get so caught up on making it to the next step in life we sometimes forget to slow and enjoy where we are at.

  33. You are so right, time waits for no one

  34. I absolutely love this. This is so encouraging.

  35. This is brilliant. Tomorrow never comes and the more you live in the future, the more of the present passes you by.

  36. I really love the changes you made to your header and what you are doing in your life. We all need to stop waiting and start living – great inspiration!

  37. I try to remember to live life to its fullest and live for the moment! Great post!

  38. My perfect moment was when I was 16 in my kitchen in Ohio…knowing what I did NOT want to be and how I wanted to live my life. That was over 50 years ago. I have ever since. Why in this day and age with everything available to women that they have to stop and think twice about doing what they want to do? So many are.

  39. This post was really inspiring to me! I have been wanting to share more of myself on my site and you’ve reaffirmed my decision. Can’t wait to read more!
