Rollercoasters are fun, right?
People pay to go on them. They stand in line for sometimes hours to ride them. They buy extra passes to skip the lines (because who likes to wait?).
They are meant to be fun.
What about the rollercoasters involved in daily life? The highs and lows. No one tells you about those. No one wants to wait in line or pay money for that.
However, without the lows we don’t truly know what the highs are like.
What I’ve come to know is that I can only take things one day at a time. Life changes too frequently for me to keep up sometimes. It’s easy to laugh a lot of the heavy things off, but when I no longer can I’m trying to practice patience.
Patience is a virtue, some say. And they are right. It’s a freaking virtue I never learned as a kid because I have zero patience with myself. I’m working on it…
So go easy on yourself today. If you didn’t get shit done that you meant to, laugh it off. Life got in the way of your so-called plans. It’s better to relax and enjoy the minutes of your day rather than stay up all night in bed because you hardly did anything that day.
