Friday

don’t worry, be happy

(B. McFerrin)

 

Anxiety always seems to strike at the worst and most random moments.

I’ve spent this week, or the past two weeks, getting back into the swing of things. Traveling from borough to borough, I’ve either worked physically or mentally — both being equally demanding.

 

I was inspired by a conversation that I had the other day.

 

Would you consider yourself patiently waiting, or awaiting patiently,” a gentleman asked me.

Prior to this he quizzed, “Are you patient?

 

I can always appreciate unexpected intellectual discourse.

 

I’d like to think that I’m pretty patient,” I mused smiling casually. And it was true.

 

We engaged in banter over the differentiation between waiting and awaiting. Which brought me to the evening I wrote this.

 

Patience is a virtue.

 

I’m at the point in my development where I’m focused on growth. Evolution.

 

I’ve tried to bypass any emerging feelings of jealousy — one emotion that I’ve practiced controlling. Lately I’ve been seeking out the benefits in situations — even if I’m not positively affected.

Maturity.

Self-lessness.

Acceptance.

Self-love.

Still working on it though!

.

As a people of the 21st century, we’ve grown accustomed to instant gratification. This insatiable hunger for quick and continuous delivery can cause an immense amount of pressure.
