Waiting is Temporary

 

As you know, waiting is temporary. You wait ten minutes to use a restroom, you wait nine months for a baby to grow, you wait years for that perfect job, you wait and wait for that wonderful companion to come along, you wait to see your name in print … life is all about waiting.

Yes, waiting is temporary but that doesn’t make it any easier! For instance, I know I can barely wait until November 14 when this book is out in the hands of women all over the world who are waiting to learn from others and to be even better leaders.  So the photo you see here in this post is beautiful and I love it, but it’s only temporary because I’ll have a brand new one after the launch becomes a reality.

Stay tuned!

Wake, pray, slay, sigh …

 

The Goal: to live my life like it’s golden aka wake, pray, slay (and be awesome) all day

The Challenge: dealing with people living their lives like it’s bronze

The solution: sighing … while re-calibrating

 

NB: Maybe I’m the only one who can relate??? I hope not! Leave a note; let me know I’m not alone … please 🙂

And you thought you had one up on this Granny … definitely not!

You get a news feed from www.bbcnews.com on your instagram account with the following headline:

Hairdryer gran Jean Brooks is ‘national hero’ say fans

You wonder how many hairstyles Jean could be doing every day to make her a national hero. Sounds as though she must be something special so you click on the link to see this introduction:

“A hairdryer-wielding grandmother who became an internet sensation says schoolchildren in her area now consider her a “national hero. Jean Brooks uses the hairdryer as a pretend speed gun outside her home in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire.”

Of course you want to read more! I also wanted to see how well this worked because it was just so far fetched.  The report went on to say this:

“A video of her has been viewed more than 33 million times on the BBC Radio Nottingham Facebook page.  Since her new-found fame, she said she is asked for selfies and fans visit her home.”

Click on the link above to see the hilarious video but guess what? Success was achieved.  It was a serious situation that called for desperate measures and I could totally relate to this as something possibly affecting many of us in other parts of the world.  Here on my little rock for sure, we have stunt bike riders performing wheelies in the middle of thick bumper-to-bumper traffic and in neighborhoods every single day but especially on weekends aka super dangerous but the riders just do not care.

Jean’s streets are much safer for residents now, including young vulnerable children; she is a great granny and an excellent role model. She did what she had to do to restore order, stability and safety from out of the chaos because as they say, ‘necessity is the mother of invention’ and this invention was most definitely necessary.

But what’s your take? Would you have gone to these lengths? And on a scale of 1 – 10 what’s your rating for ingenuity? Let’s start a conversation; share your thoughts in the comments box 🙂
