Editorial Reviews

Review

"If we are waiting to be 'fully cooked' we’ll never do those amazing, fun, and creative projects we’re longing to do."
—NPR's New Dimensions

"A self-confessed 'self-help junkie,' Moeller shares how she got past the persistent feeling of falling short and started living."
Publishers Weekly

—The Broke Mom's Guide to Everything

"This is a great book to help you realize to stop waiting and to start living!"
—Howling Horn

"My favorite: the 'gentle knock' segments throughout this book. Throughout What Are You Waiting For? Kristen Moeller offers these life-searching, self-reflective questions. If you read nothing else of this book and just take these questions to your daily meditation, you’ll become a better person—perhaps, the person you’ve been longing to become."
—The Avid Reader

—My Little House of Treasures

"Kristen does so much more than just ask - she guides a reader to connect
to the WHY behind all the waiting. It's a compelling invitation to move forward...
at one or all levels."
–Mary Anne Radmacher, author of Lean Forward Into Your Life

"Does it feel like you have been waiting your whole life? Are you tired of waiting but terrified of going forward, wondering which road to look to or turn from in order to find the feeling you most want in this world? Wait no longer. What Are You Waiting For by Kristen Moeller is enlightening, instructive, and the perfect balance of coaxing you into realizing your dreams while honoring that you might have a little more considering to do before you can make the leap. You’ll love Moeller’s story, her keen and direct insight, and the powerful way she reminds you, page after page, that relishing life requires not just casual journey but calculated risk, how there can be a balance between fear and rest, and that the opportunity for growth is inevitably a blend of both terrifying choice and ultimately breathtaking reward."
–Rosie Molinary, author of Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self-Acceptance

—Kirsty Spraggon, Television Personality, International Speaker & Author

“By the end of this book and your personal exploration, you will see where you wait for life to begin. You will see that all the answers you need come from within. You will learn to stop hiding your magnificence. You will become, as Kristen proclaims, “a fierce disruption of the ordinary".

She expresses with exquisite clarity not only the richness that is available to each of us if we only choose to consciously create our own life each day, but offers a clear recipe for achieving extraordinary meaning and fulfillment. Be prepared to feel inspired, engage with your true passions, and find new ways to live your humanity beginning today.”
—Gary Goldstein, movie producer (Pretty Woman), author, speaker and coach

Rather than waiting for the perfect moment Kristen teaches us how to create them. What Are You Waiting For? will give you the tools to live an inspired, empowered and fulfilling life now!”
—Laura Duksta, author of the New York Times Bestseller I Love You More

“In What Are You Waiting For?, Kristen eloquently demonstrates how to become responsible for all areas of our life, including our relationship to money. So often, people don't get that wealth is a spiritual concept and that money is a byproduct of value creation. It's crucial to learn how to take responsibility for your life and do it in a way that is consistent with who you are from a spiritual perspective.”
—Garrett B. Gunderson, Author of Killing Sacred Cows

What Are You Waiting For? is a refreshing take on personal development where you can let go of the constant need for ‘development’ and find peace in knowing that where you are is exactly where you need to be.

Reading this book, you will feel normal, connected, loved and empowered to live an extraordinary life.”

What I am waiting for?

It is a question we have all undoubtedly asked ourselves at some point.

Maybe it has to do with going after something that we say we want or moving to a new level in pursuing our passion. For Kristen Moeller the question forced her to do a self-examination of the good, the bad and the unknown, and what she has learned is now being shared with us in the book WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

I approached this book with some nervous excitement, mainly because I like others want to know the answer but then realize this will force upon me the need to do the work necessary to get what I want. Kristen went through degrees of loss in her life and afterwards found herself wondering what was really important. Sometimes we have to go through the fire (literally for some) in order to realize what is left behind, what have we chosen to carry with us and more importantly what are we going to do with ourselves now. Kristen helps us to understand the importance of not just being in the moment but embracing all the little things that it brings because those times and experiences will never come again.

This doesn't mean that we should live life in wait of the 'other shoe to drop', but we should always be mindful that what we have right now---this very moment---is unique and special, and so is what we choose to do with it.

Kristen encourages the reader to stop looking for the "perfect" time and instead focus on making the most of the time and moment we have right now. Using her own experiences and "Gentle Knocks" through the book for us to do self-reflections, she gives us everything we will need to move forward, making the leap that can result in our being present every day of our life.

Poignant and powerful, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? prepares us for the work necessary to rise to the occasion of our lives.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By O. Halabieh on June 20, 2014
Format: Paperback
This book is about taking charge of your life - but contrary to many self-help book - the author does not present any silver bullets because as we all know there are none. Instead, Kristen shares with her readership authentic and genuine personal stories and uses the power of inquisitive questions (gentle knocks) to lead her readers on a journey of self exploration. Below are key excerpts from the book that strongly resonated with me:

1- "This is the tragic fate of the human condition. We have what might be called "spiritual narcolepsy." We forget who we are, what we are capable of, and what it is like to feel deeply, intensely, and joyously alive. We forget what it means to be free."

2- "Life doesn't come wrapped in a neat little package—yet so many of us seek just that. And, when it doesn't turn out that way, we are back where we started, wondering how we got here again."

3- "Here are some tools from the relationship tool bag that David and I have gathered over our two decades together. I don't claim to always use them, but I do claim that when I do use them, they work!...IDENTIFY EXPECTATIONS...STOP KEEPING SCORE...PRACTICE ACCEPTANCE...GIVE UP BEING RIGHT ...DON'T WAIT ...WHEN YOU FORGIVE, BE GENEROUS"

4- "If we believe we are not lovable, we will never find the real love or satisfaction we seek. If we do believe it, we can find fulfillment for ourselves and stop demanding that others fulfill us."

5- "One of humanity's greatest strengths is resiliency—the ability to adapt to varied conditions, overcome setbacks, and continue to grow. Even when we doubt this, each of us has this ability; it is our resilience that gets us through the muck time and time and time again.

Format: Paperback
I can't understand why we as human beings need to constantly be reminded to LIVE IN THIS MOMENT! So many things, reasons, and excuses cloud our ability to JUST LIVE! I am in love with this book and this author! I heard Kristen Moeller speak at a Women's gathering and I couldn't wait to read her book. My first thought was that her writing reminded me of one of the tenets I live by: from "Emmanuel's Book" The choice for Love: Fear tells you, "I want to make you safe." Love says, "You ARE safe." Kristen's story is a subtle reminder that we are all safe and her book nudges us with "gentle knocks" in the form of questions and tools for more authentic living. My wish for everyone, take the time to thoroughly engross yourself in this book...you will not for one minute be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Kristen’s first book, Waiting for Jack: Confessions of a Self-Help Junkie: How to Stop Waiting and Start Living Your Life, explored her personal story of surviving addictions while waiting for that special “something” outside herself before her life could finally begin. This book takes that message a step further as she weaves the tragedy of losing her home and all her possessions in a wildfire in 2012 into her message. Using humor, wisdom and practical life lessons, she continues her mission to encourage readers to live their life now, to create their circumstances from the inside out, instead of the other way round. It’s a wise and compassionate read, by someone who’s been there.

Every once in a while, you come across a book at just the right time for the circumstances you are in at the time. When your heart is hurting- fiction just seems unnecessary. I love the way the author is so real with her pain and angst and- in the face of all that- the way she knows that everything is okay, that the world is not coming to an end- it's just the human condition. This book is letting me know that it's okay to be with the pain and that nothing needs to be fixed. It is one of those books that you'll want to keep and go back to when you need to be reminded to "Live Your Life Now"!
