"Good things come to those who wait; but only the things left by those who hustle."

-Abraham Lincoln

 

I've always asked myself where should I be at the moment? How should I act in front of everyone? How should I please them? Why am I a failure? Why am I a constant reminder that disappointments are always inevitable? Are my efforts not enough? Are my beliefs out of place? Does my happiness require meeting everybody's expectations? Am I doing right? How do I know that I'm doing the right thing if it doesn't make me happy? How do I live?


 

I learned that through these questions, you get to know what you really want and how you want your life should be. But the most special thing that you can do is to stick with patience. And if you have patience, it only means that you appreciate the things you love most even if it includes waiting. You wait for the right place. You wait for the right time. You wait for the right person. You need patience to serve the people around you. So, when these things and people come, value them; hold them dear like a newly washed glass being held with care and let it not slip through your hands. It's a challenge, you see. There will be people who will not like you even if you have put so much effort just to please them and make them see the good in you; there will be expectations that will fall into disappointments; there will be a time that you'll fail and get depressed; not all people will understand you or your beliefs; life is not perfect.


 

So, I guess, after all, you just have to be yourself. If people can't like you, that's okay, they don't matter. What matters is you love the person that you are. You love the things you do. You love the people around you. Because at the end of the day, what you chose is the outcome of your patience. You don't just wait because you have to; you do it because you know that there is good in waiting and you see happiness at the end of its road. And that's how I live. I live for the positivity of waiting, of patience. I live for my happiness. Will that hurt others? How about you?


 

How do you live?
