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…

I am human patiently accepting myself. I am unapologetic about being wild, and untamed. I am always open to new things and I only accept good vibe and positive energies. I love people and life and the world is my playground. I love children, animals and elderly people. I write to express and understand my thoughts, feeling and behaviors. It's self therapy and a visualization tool. I am a selfish loner at times a very sensitive INTJ. I am an aspiring psychological disorders and consumer behavior researcher and practitioner, living with Bipolar 1.
