I know that was a lot of information but does anyone else identify with what I said?
And does any of it have anything to do with this feeling...no, this KNOWLEDGE...that something is coming and will happen that is far bigger than me or you or any of us?
I just...want to know. I want some sort of explanation or at least to be able to have someone identify with what I said or say, "Hey, I've felt the same way, I've been through some of the same stuff and it made me feel this way even more" or whatever someone would say.
I've been living my life to the fullest every day, I'm not waiting for anything to change my life because only God and I can do that. But I know that no matter how much I try to block it out or ignore it, the feeling of waiting and knowing it's coming has been growing stronger every day since I was a child. So what the Hell are we all waiting for? What's coming???

In this thread: A lot of people waiting for "something" to change their lives.
I will probably catch a lot of crap for this, and maybe it has been brought up already, but I didn't want to read through 10 pages of people explaining their waiting situation.
Why are you waiting for outside influences to dictate a change in your life? That is EXACTLY why the "system" people are complaining about exists.
If you don't like your life, change it. Get out of your comfort zone, try something new. Travel the world.
Waiting gets boring, and in the meantime you get distracted from truly enjoying this life.
... I used to feel the same sentiments as many of you, years ago

Thank you for the kind words, and who knows, maybe *I'm* the special one ;-)

Of course I always like that line from the Incredibles when everyone is special then no one is.

We all want to be unique and special and in the grand scheme of things we all truly are, but that isn't enough. Granted this thread has drawn out the introverts in force and have felt safe because of shared thoughts and feelings that we all once thought was unique to ourselves or at least as compared to the people that surround us. We are dreamers. We fantasize about being a crew member on Star Trek or how cool it would be to be a part of the Star Gate crew. We want and feel like we should be a part of something greater. The safest place to be most of the time these days are in our day dreams or for me lost in a day of RPG's or 15 episodes in a row of X-Files on Netflix. There is a psychological, rooted in science explanation for our commonality....but that doesn't mean that it has to exclude any other reason....not to mention the benefit so many people have gotten from this thread...that is real human connection good stuff.

I also feel at this point that time does seem to be accellerating, I find myself with less and less time somehow and it's making me anxious. Weeks pass in what used to be a day and hours are like minutes.

I feel the same although this feeling is an illusion, time waits for no man, and life is too short to sit around and wait.
I don't think any one of us are sitting around waiting.
Im living life to the fullest!
The waiting game is a feeling as if we are expecting something grand to take place within and abroad.
