Waiting and Hoping

Hoping

She’s got them double crossed!!

Once again I have my fingers crossed hoping something will happen.  It, as it usually is in these cases, is completely 100% out of my control. Nothing I can do about it. It’s not even MY thing. And I wonder….does that seem to almost make it HARDER to take?

My Little One (now 10) had her audition for a local theater company on Tuesday. Callbacks were Wednesday – and yes, she got called. We were thrilled. But as it usually goes, not all kids who audition, or who even get asked to callbacks, will be cast in this production. And so we wait. Wait until they post the cast list Friday evening and see if her name is on it.

I know the routine well. I went through this whole process several times before with my son (different theater, different town, same routine) so in some ways I’m experienced in the waiting game. But this …

Is the Waiting Really the Hardest Part?

Have you ever woken up in morning filled with nervous anticipation – wondering what the day ahead would bring?  Ever had doctor appointments scheduled in the hopes of providing answers – possibly answers you may not want to hear?  You wonder how to brace yourself for potentially bad news.  And you try to think positive, because of course you believe in the power of positive thoughts and all that.  But you wonder, when you crawl back into your bed at the end of the day, will your life have been changed?  Will you have shed tears?  Will you get to continue on down the path you were on?  Or, will you find that you are being forced led down a different one (a path no one chooses to explore)?

“Quick” Visit to the Doctor

Ever been in a doctor’s exam room, half naked, waiting to be seen?  Waiting.  Waiting. Waiting.  You’ve read the magazine you brought in the room with you – twice – and it wasn’t even a good one to begin with.  Tick tock.  You have things to do.  You crammed scheduled this appointment in among the many other things you needed to get done in the few free hours you have before picking your son or daughter up from school.   Tick tock.  What do you do?  Put BACK ON your clothes so you can pop out and see what the deal is?  Perhaps there is some wild emergency going on.  Maybe they have evacuated the building and just forgotten to come and tell you!  Maybe there is a perfectly good reason why you are sitting here waiting as time keeps ticking on by.  Or not.

If my day did not feel so rushed, I think this Zen Mama Wannabe would have …
