After reading Daiana’s blogpost on loving your process, it is also part the result, I realize sometimes that I wish I could skip the bad parts of my life and be left with the good and best times. I know, the bad parts/moments is where the growth happens and those don’t last forever but they sure take a long time to past!
There are some things that I can wait for and others that get me extremely impatient, for example I can wait a whole year for season 3 of Derry Girls to return on Netflix (it’s been 1 year and a half maybe, yet I’m still here calm, cool and collected) while waiting for a better job opportunity frustrates me.
Here is another example, my friend has been crushing on a guy for months now, we buy from his mini-mart twice a week just so she can see him but never talk to him, I told her I couldn’t do it I would have told him how I felt the moment I was sure I wanted to know more about him and not wait months, see what I mean? My level of patience depends on the situation.

This week all I wanted was to fast forward the bad bits when I should have experienced them for what they were, the obstacles before the breakthrough. I remedied the situation by having my night owl 2:00 A.M. moment this morning, I allowed myself to breathe and I just wrote about how I was feeling and let my thoughts take over! It’s been a while since I’ve been able to do that and I woke up this morning feeling more like myself.
I’ve paused a few good moments (I didn’t want to see them end) and I’m allowing myself to endure the bad ones. I won’t say I’m not complaining because I do it mentally but I find the lessons in those unbearable experiences to balance it all out.
How was your week? Rant about it in the comment section.
