What are you waiting for?
Do you find yourself waiting for the right moment? The ideal relationship? The perfect job? Are you waiting for your “real” life to begin? Do think that the gifts of life are right around the corner? That one day you will arrive and everything will be okay? Do you endlessly search, yet never seem to find?
Through the sharing of authentic personal stories and profound life lessons, Kristen Moeller explores our pervasive human tendency to wait for life and to look outside ourselves for answers. So we don’t try; we give up. We sell out and we forget who we are. We are afraid to succeed, afraid to fail, and afraid to say we are afraid. But as Wayne Gretzky said, “You'll always miss one-hundred percent of the shots you don't take!” Kristen Moeller's mission in life is to inspire you to get on the path, move forward and take the shot.

Kristen Moeller, MS has been in the field of personal development since 1989. As a coach, author, speaker and radio show host her work comes from heart. She relays her compassionate message on a weekly radio show, “What Are You Waiting For?” where she converses with luminaries such as Jack Canfield, Bob Doyle from the movie 'The Secret' and bestselling author Marci Shimoff to name a few.
Kristen's other achievements include founding a non-profit organization, providing 'pay it forward' scholarships to life-enhancing programs. She is an active force, who enjoys hiking, running, skiing, and horse-riding in her free time and whose energy has captivated thousands of people through her work.

I guess most of us find ourselves asking when things will be perfect and when will we be truly happy. We continue waiting for a magical solution, expecting that somehow everything just fall into place and we can be free. Unfortunately, there is no secret formula and life is messy, sad and happy but above all life is our only chance to LIVE.

This book by the lovely Kristen Moeller show us that we are not alone in the endless waiting. Waiting is part of the human nature but we can learn to live without waisting time or expecting something that will never come.

I enjoyed the informal, personal, touching and inspirational writing style the author used in the book. The words flow naturally, the sentences are engaging and you believe every word she says because she is being honest.

Whether or not you enjoy self-help books, this one is something you shouldn't miss. Actually, I'm not a fan of this genre, I believe that each one will find their path somehow and there is not a formula to live a wonderful life. However, this book doesn't try to sell you the five steps to happiness. The author use her personal experiences and other people anecdotes to help us think over our choices and our lives.

I'm glad I read this book. I ended up feeling lighter and a bit more open to what life has to offer. I'm not saying that now I know how to stop waiting but at least I know I'm not the only one and that it's possible to move on and enjoy living.

Another great thing about this book were the quotes at the beginning of the chapters. I love inspirational quotes.

Overall, a great book. Enlightening, powerful and enjoyable.
