201. How to… weather the storm.

The truth of the matter is, if life was mundane and utterly predictable every day, we’d all be bored to actual tears. Luckily it’s not, but… still, sometimes, we wish it was. Sometimes, we want a day where nothing happens and we can simply do our best impression of a potato while watching Jerry Springer re-runs from our couch.

I haven’t had one of those days in quite a while, but I suppose I’ve also learned a thing or two about how not to vomit when the rollercoaster that is life throws me for a loop. And the secret to it is… there is no real secret. Sometimes, the absolute best you can do is hold on tight, take a deep breath, close your eyes, and wait for everything to calm down again. Sometimes, the best you can do is just play a little bit of the waiting game. We play the waiting game with tons of stuff in our lives every day. We wait for that person we’ve been pining over to notice we exist. We wait for the people working in the fast food restaurant to make our food. We wait for promotions at work, for babies to be born, for new releases to come out. We wait for that perfect day to go to the beach just for thirty seconds on the perfect wave.

Life, in so many of its facets, is nothing more than a waiting game. So when you feel it all bogging you down, just remember that it will get better. The waters will calm, and things will be alright. That’s what I tell myself, even when it’s hard… and it’s worked out pretty well for me so far.
