I'm not waiting on a single thing in this life, just enjoying it.

All my life I've had this feeling of.....waiting. For what? I do not know. I only know that it feels as if something's out there, and I'm at the mercy of its timeline.
I wish I could describe this waiting sensation better, but I don't know that I can.
So I go through my daily routine, waiting for this....something.....and all the while life passes by.
Is it a distraction? Or is my lifestyle distracting me from discovering what I'm waiting for?
I'm 38 years old, I feel like I'm 18, and yet my life is halfway over in all likelihood. And the waiting continues, on and on.
Do you feel it? Have you discovered what you're waiting for? Or, like me, do you still wait?
Any and all replies welcomed.

I think I understand what your going through. There are however many different things that it could be. Perhaps your having an issue with employment, like most people are right now, and as a result are suffering from capitalism. Perhaps your single and never been married, or don't have any kids, it could be your biological clock ticking telling you that you need to get these things in motion.
I read an article that wrote about how there seems to be a part of the human brain that is able to have pre-thoughts about major things that are going to happen, and its the real deal. There is so much we don't know about the brain and I believe the akasha files are very real. You could just be suffering from anxiety as well. The recent changes to the economy and how it affects each and every person is enough to cause anxiety for anyone.
If you give enough thought about it, there is a good chance you can figure it out, if not you might have to go get some anxiety meds. Never feel defeated just because you might have to take meds, this is a messed up world we live in, and medication is a hell of a lot better than the effects you might have to deal with.

Looks like I'm one of the younger ones to reply to this. I'm 25 years old. I feel like I've always been waiting for something to happen. I'm constantly wondering what my purpose is here in this life. I'm waiting to either figure that out and do something with it or for something interesting to happen. I really have no aspirations when it comes to a career. I don't really care about any of that. Nothing of that sort interests me. My interests pertain to most topics covered on sites like this one. I have a degree, but the times we're in having a degree doesn't matter too much. I've learned early that making good money doesn't bring happiness. It seems like everything I do is just to try and distract myself while I'm waiting. It's good to know that I'm not the only one out there with the same feeling. Just wish we knew what we were waiting for!

Everyone feels it at some point or another. It's called general paranoia. Sometimes I am BLOWN AWAY at the types of threads which receive attention. Then I remember where I am...

Like most of the replies I've read, most are at or approaching middle age. I started feeling this "waiting for something" since I graduated from highscool in '87. I believe U2 had just came out with the album "The Joshua Tree" and my favorite song had the line; "and I still havent found what I'm looking for". And 26 years later I am still waiting. (Sorry in advance to those who will not get this tune out of their head all day).
