What are we waiting for?

If there is something we are not sure is that tomorrow may or may not exist, unfortunately, life  is like this for all of us, from the richest person in the world to the  poorest human being; from the biggest animal to the tiniest insect and even though we all know all of that we wait, wait for the perfect moment, perfect opportunity, a better time, wait for the things to get better, wait for the next day to arrive even when it’s uncertain.

While a child has more perspectives to live than an older person, life happens for both ages and it will continue to happen until God says so, until destiny determines so, until life says so. A good weather today? You might ask  yourself on a very sunny day, perhaps this day it will make you move, make you make the next thing you should’ve done yesterday when the sky wasn’t so clear and blue.

We were taught to wait, to stay still, to wait for a while until the magnificent glorious day for you arrives and show you what is life is all about. Waiting is good, waiting is here, but it can’t be damaging to us if we wait too much, if we wait for the perfect moment all the time we might end up living or end up dying waiting for a miracle happen in our life which it may happen, but if you move, if you give your 100%, if you try and keep trying.

In my dreams, I still wait for my princess to become real, for the job to be perfect, for the people be gentle, for the food be tasty, for the weather be always good, for the animals to be domesticated, for the lesson to be taught, for the friends to be unforgettable and for life to be endless. Half dream and half real, I share both realities waiting for a better day.

  1. Meu inglês não é lá essas coisas, mas acho que capitei a ideia. O perigo dessa eterna espera é não viver o presente (como creio ter lido de seu texto), o que por consequências torna tudo ilusório, já que nunca se vive o real de fato. Não é de se estranhar que se essa espera finalmente findasse, esse momento tão esperado não duraria mais que segundos, até que um novo desejo surgisse, ocasionando novamente a espera. Afinal, a princesa tão sonhada pode ter mau hálito; o trabalho perfeito pode deixar de ser desafiante; a comida gostosa perde o sabor se não estiver com fome… O problema seria realmente a espera ou o desejo que a provoca? Os desejos são saciáveis ou ilimitados? Em que implicaria uma vida vivida 100% no real, e não em 50% no ilusório? Como viver 100% no real na sociedade em que vivemos? Meu inglês tá muito ruim e fugi totalmente de sua proposta? Rs =)

    1. You’ve got a point and good questions that I believe only each one of us will be able to answer or perhaps make us think about it…. Quite inspiring …thanks for the comment 🙂
