WAIT. That word describes 2012, so far, in my life.

John Maxwell explains the word “WAIT” in today’s minute. Have the lessons caught up with me yet? I could make myself crazy trying to figure it out, which is what my problem-solving brain constantly tries to do.

Dictionary definitions:

“Stay in place in expectation of”…

“To be ready and available”…

“A state or attitude of watchfulness and expectancy”…

These all point to activity in the mind, if not the body. So while we appear to be at rest, motionless, aimless even, we stay ready and expect what is next. Even when we don’t know what ‘next’ will be.
