97. How to… be patient.

It’s been… a rough time lately. Or the last couple years? A long time. Anyway, I think the point is that no matter how much life – the first or the Second one – throws at you, the key is to be patient. As much as life can knock you down, there are so many things and wonderful people that can help you pick yourself back up. And that’s the important part, and the hard part – the realizing that while you may have made some bad choices, while things may have gotten unbearable for a little while, while things may seem dark, there’s always a light somewhere. Sometimes it’s hard to recognize, and sometimes it’s even harder to accept, but it’s the truth.

That’s why I’ve been single so long. That’s why when life kicks me in the face, I say I’m fine and then try to change the subject. That’s why, even on the worst of days, I’m still here, dealing with the things I need to deal with, because I know that this thing – whatever it happens to be at the moment – is temporary, and it will pass, and there will be good things to follow it, or good people, and happy moments, and happiness… which is two different things, of course.

Patience is a virtue that not many people have. Some will look to blame their misfortune on others. Some will never take ownership of the fact that the bad in their lives must coexist with the good. Some will wallow in it, until it becomes them, a singularly defining trait from which they can not escape. But… you don’t have to do that. You have a choice. Every single day, you have a choice to make things new, to be a bigger and better person and not let the sum of all the yesterdays tell you who you are today.

So what do I do? Take a deep breath, close my eyes, count to ten…

Have patience. Because tomorrow is coming, and it will be beautiful.
