Mental Wellness: Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop

Too often, I see people who are waiting for the other shoe to drop. Don’t worry, I fall victim to this syndrome as well. But see myself and others in situations that are, “as soon as x then y”. As soon as, as soon as…It’s a never ending cycle it seems like. Because as soon as x then what really happens. Do you really need x to happen to be successful?

New Year’s Eve resolutions are the perfect example of this. We wait until the New Year to start in on our goals. But why can’t we start right now? Today? This hour? What is keeping us from starting a goal now instead of after the other shoe drops?
