I will wait

Life is very fragile, very precious. Life is all we have. Our beating hearts are what we should treasure the most.

I look back and I’m ashamed of how many times I did not value my life enough. I wasted my time with worthless people doing worthless things for momentary amusement.

I never knew how to wait but also I never really saw the point in doing that. Now I do.

I want to fill my life with value and people I love and who love me back and I know it’s finally time to leave behind this childish behavior of seeking ephemeral pleasure.

The same way I said I now saw a bigger world, I also see my life from above, a bigger picture, and I see how I must work towards one that is worth living.

I must wait for love and not jump into meaningless relationships. I must work hard and wait for the career I want and not jump into the conclusion I can’t do it without even trying. I must wait and work towards things falling into their right place because if I keep chasing every single apparent opportunity I end up losing what I’ve built so far.

I’ll wait. I’ll be patient. And it will be worth it.

  1. I’m proud to know you, to see your sharp introspection and growth as a person. I’ve said so before, but you only climb higher and higher !
    You’re so far ahead of so many people your age–and much older as well– some people just don’t ‘get it’.
