12 things to stop waiting for in life
1 His first move.
2 The ginger martini and chocolate chip cookie diet—ain’t gonna happen.
3 A decent raise. Earn it, ask for it, get it.
4 That gorgeous gay guy to change his mind.
5 A sign to tell you what to do next.
6 A cellulite cure. Let’s worry about AIDS and cancer first.
7 Your ex to say he’s really sorry. Don’t worry—karma will get him in the end.
8 The bathroom to clean itself.
9 Monogamy to be easy (same goes for flossing).
10 New Year’s. Make the resolution today.
11 Your mother’s approval. If you’re happy, she will be too (eventually).
12 A man to change everything in your life. Change it yourself now—he’ll catch up with you later.
