Lost in Limbo

I am so tired of waiting. It seems like I am consistently lost in limbo, waiting for someone or something to happen so that I can take the next steps that I need to take.

I'm sure some of you are thinking, "Well then, don't wait. make things happen on your own. Take action."

I'd love to, but sometimes the next step, the next action is dictated by something outside yourself. So, here I am stuck waiting.

And the clock ticks slowly . . . tic tic tic tic.

There is no speeding up time. There is no making days move faster either, and sometimes the waiting depends on days rather than minutes.

Waiting for bureaucracy. Waiting for returned phone calls. Waiting for the next step of creation. Waiting for inspiration. Waiting for dinner.

All I seem to be doing right now is waiting, and I don't want to wait anymore.

How do I make my time in limbo seem a little less like waiting, and a little more like progress?
