Kristen's story is beyond inspirational, and her advice very honest and applicable to any person's life. This book combats fear, doubt, anxiety, and even laziness to remind you to reconsider what's really important to you and make you think about what it is you're waiting for before jumping in.

My favorite sentence in WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? is “We wait and wait to finally be ourselves, craving to experience freedom of authentic self-expression, yet we never do if we don’t let the messy come out as well.” Kristen Moeller sums up the reason why I wait around and never do anything, but what I have to recognize is that it’s never going to be perfect.

Kristen Moeller’s What Are You Waiting For? is an intimate look into the author’s struggle with addiction and devastating material loss. Moeller emerges from losing her house to the eventual realization that the tense to live in has to be the present. We each hope to become better people, more spiritual, or to amass more wealth, but Moeller points out in her book that, even after some of these goals are achieved, we will still be wanting and unsatisfied without the intention of enjoying ourselves and our successes in the present. This is a humbling and educational book of self-discovery that could benefit everyone: the young adult who just finished their higher education to the stay at home mom to the retired military veteran.

hard-won wisdom- "Stop Waiting, Start Living" I am very moved by the story of how Kristen Moeller lost everything in the terrible fires in Colorado last year - even the laptop with this book on it. How she handled this is simply amazing me and I am moved  and motivated by her example. What a brave author, brave book  and bold lesson and reminder to us all- live is happening NOW!

What Are You Waiting For? is a wonderfully engaging book that discusses the important matters of life--relationships, home, money (yes, even money), fear, and much more. Pulling from her own experiences, Kristen Moeller identifies some enlightening lessons to be learned and poses questions that we should all be asking ourselves. One of my favorite parts in the book is in Chapter 5, which lists several tools to carry in your relationship tool bag. These tools are: to identify expectations, to stop keeping score, to practice acceptance, to give up on being right, not to wait (don't wait), and when you forgive, to be generous. If you want to get further explanations of these tools, you'll have to get the book! I promise, you won't be disappointed.

I’m the type of person who plans and dreams how my life is supposed to go, and then I don’t do it. As a teenager, I wanted to be a musician. I learned the instruments, but never stepped outside my comfort zone. This book let me see the mistakes. Moeller’s excellent life advice is plain to read and easy to understand. Her advice starts imply, and it’s her best advice: ACCEPT YOUR TRUE SELF. How does one do that? I won’t ruin the book for you, but it is the place you start. You really have to learn about yourself: your likes, dislikes; your goals, dreams; your tendencies, habits etc. Only then can you explore how to treat yourself and to improve your life for the better.

This book is awesome. I love Moeller's step-by-step instructions in each chapter, especially "Waiting for Love to Come Along." Even more helpful were the "Gentle Knock" boxes that serve as nudges to do whatever it is Moeller is advising. Her tone is homey like a mother but informational like a college professor. My life is changed.
