Patience, My Friend.


Today I had a moment.

I haven't had a moment in so long. When I felt it coming and I fixed my mouth to say something, I cut myself short. I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, said thank you, and left. I proceeded to walk outside, sat on the nearest bench, put my phone on airplane mode, and just closed my eyes. I left the sun shine on me, the wind breeze by my face.

I just took in nature for the moment. For that brief moment, I surrendered myself to the nice day.

When I opened my eyes, the sun seemed a little brighter, the wind felt a little bit cooler, and the day didn't seem bad at all. That's the biggest thing that I've learned in the past year, when things aren't going your way, just take some time to yourself and just calm down & realize that life isn't bad at all. Sitting outside in the nice weather is what calms me down, because I love being outside in sunshine and cool weather. Soon as I did that, my thoughts became clear.

I know this is a short post, but that's pretty much the gist of it, when you're feeling that overwhelming feeling that something or nothing is going your way, just take some time to yourself, do something that makes you calm, whether it be playing video games, talking to someone, or drinking your favorite drink. Take that little time to reload, trust me, nothing that you have to do during the day is more important than your personal sanity and well being.

Not too much more to say on this beyond that.
