I don’t know where that phrase comes from – I wait for no man. A movie I am sure, but it suits my revelation and thoughts of the last eve. Why am I waiting on anyone else to make me happy? That’s my job! Not my husband’s, not God’s, not my workplace’s. In my head, I’ve putting too much pressure on my White Knight to be all that I think he can / should be thinking I would only be able to be all that I can be when he does. This is not true. I need to do my best at all times regardless of anyone else’s performance. If I’m not doing what makes me happy, I need to be the one to change it not wait for some external source or grand calling.
If I’m frustrated about the lack of music in my life, I need to make time for worship and maybe learn a new instrument or two (like I’ve been saying for months / years). Not wait until he gets off his butt and learns to play the guitar he bought two years ago.
If I miss church, I need to make time to go even if we work Sunday morning there are options in the evening or early or on weekdays.
If I miss dance, I need to make time for a class or at least alone time with some music and an empty room.
If I am lonely, I need to make some friends instead of relying on him to be my everything.
If I miss making a difference in my community, I need to step out and step up to the plate, not wait for him to have the energy/interest/drive to help a worthy organization.
Stop making excuses Grace!
You are your own person. Take some responsibility for yourself and your own happiness. He’s not holding you back. He’s missing out on life, but so are you! No more. I wait for no man.
