    Default Waiting

    someone who spends their life waiting; waiting for something to happen or waiting for the axe to fall -
    what are they saying about themselves?

    they are saying that their life is not worth fighting for.
    they are saying that they don't define their own life - they don't even let their life define them.
    waiting is what defines them.
    'the falling axe' is what defines them, because it is the most significant thing in their life.


    you wait long enough and you'll stop living. but you won't be dead either.
    if you spend your life waiting for the axe to fall that is what you are. you are the falling axe.


    so get busy living or get busy dying!
    but don't wait.
    life is waiting for you, it always has been. all you have to do is fucking grab it.

    grab life with me, people!

    This thread makes me want to have sex in a moment like this:



    True though, there is no such thing as the right, perfect, or correct time for anything.

    And as my buddy Walter Matthau said in the movie Out to Sea,

    "There's no such thing as too late, that's why they invented death!"

    Some people die at 25 and aren't buried until 75.

    It is not length of life, but depth of life.

    Life really is what you make of it.
    "I put the fires out."
    "you made them worse."
    "worse...or better?"

    haha, i didn't mean that kind of waiting. i was talking about waiting for your life to happen versus making it happen yourself.
    go wear a hat, man.

    But what about when you make it happen and part of the process is waiting for things to unfold that have already been set in motion?

    yeah, sometimes that is unavoidable. you are right, definitely, it is part of the process.
    always do the most you can do, but at some point sometimes it does fall out of your hands.

    although even then, i am of the mind that you fight it until there's no fight left in you.....and then fight it a little more. haha!

    I got tired of waiting and forced my life into motion, by joining the military. Now I'm waiting for this time period to be over with so I can get on with my life.

    I really want to grab my life! If I just had the opportunity.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."
