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…
