A Lesson in Patience

I must first conclude 

I let it go. 

For the first time in my life 

I’ve learnt to let go


“If it won’t matter in 5 years 

Don’t waste 5 minutes getting upset about it.”


Well, it’s been pouring rain for about 90 minutes

I walked and ran in the rain. 

I got wet. 

My shoes are soaked.

I think they’re falling apart. 

I was cold for about 30 minutes.

I ate a patty and exercised the theory of mind. 

I thought about my thoughts. 

No I’m not weird. 

I reasoned with myself.

And concluded that I was wasting time and energy being so consumed in anger. 

Then I remembered this quotation I felt was an enlightened idea. 

Truthfully Imani, will this experience really matter in 5 years?


Yes I laughed at my immature response to getting stuck in the rain 

I laughed at how ridiculous the whole thing was. 

I remembered that I actually loved the rain and right there 

I could sing and dance with relief. 

I am grateful for progress. 

Patiently creating myself…
