Your December Monthly Forecast: We all tend to think that ‘doing nothing’ is not an option. But at times it can be the very best option. Far too often we meddle and fiddle with processes that are best left to run their natural course. At best, our intrepid activity makes no difference. At worst, it gets in the way. It holds back positive forces that might otherwise be released. Perhaps, eventually, you’ll have to take action. First, though, it may prove wise to leave everything much as it is. Give the dust a chance to settle in December. Wait till you see what’s truly needed before worrying about anything. That’s holding place for now. Back Later.  Cainer.

 

I have waited often and a lot in Decembers.

THE YAAN.

eBENCH time at last. Its also the new weekly photo theme. WAITING. My December Astrological Forecast a la Cainer came in at the same time and reinforced the WAITING.   The prospect of spending December in the manner that Cainer describes is very appealing. I do believe I shall concentrate on just WAITING.

Decembers have often been like that for me. And for others what with Christmas and Holidays on their way. I have a daughter born on Boxing Day and a Granddaughter born early January so the inbreath of the Waiter comes naturally to me at this time of the year. Its Summertime here in Australia and I am WAITING for the days to warm up and the swimming and boating to come back.

Altucher’s tip for this day is RELATE TO OTHERS. I’m sitting here on the eBENCH and I am pretty sure there’s a good few of you doing something similar. I am willing to bet that a good few of you are waiting for at least one of the things I am waiting for this early December Saturday Night.

Give me a moment and I’ll bring to mind 10 things I am waiting for.

10 THINGS I AM WAITING FOR.

Christmas My girl’s medical results
a call from my son and his family warm weather
swimming days bedtime
Izzy to get some gigs he likes inspiration
the processes to run their natural course the next development in the OCCUPY movements

AND NOW THE INITIAL LOOK AROUND AT OTHER BLOGGERS 

“WAITING” SEEMS TO ME TO BE A TOPIC WITH WIDTH AND DEPTH AND POTENTIAL.

Here is my Altucherian chance to relate to the work of others.

Mike’s post just reminded me of waiting for the 2009 floods to come and then to go down so we could get out of our house. 7-8 days it took.

FLOODS3 033 flooding 004
flooding and boats 040 FLOODS MORE 046
FLOODS 6 041 izzy on truck
FIRST DAY OUT 001 032

FLOODS RECEDE 015

It was a tense business, that flood. Waiting to see whether it broke the levee. Waiting for evacuation  and S.E.S which didn’t come. Getting our cars out and hearing the call that the COLDSTREAM WAS FLOWING BACKWARDS and then the eerie silent Waterworld as paddocks filled up and the cattle were taken to higher ground. Not knowing how high it would come. The fridge underneath the house, banging against the pylons. That was quite a Waiting, that one of May 2009 in Ulmarra.
