How long that word is, not in the number of letters it has, but in the number of seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years that we have to wait to get where we want to. Sometimes the wait is due to obstacles blocking our way, and some other times, it is due to individuals leading us to dead ends. How can we wait patiently, how can we wait without giving up, how can we wait without loosing hope, and how can we wait while still living?!
They say that everyone has his own journey, his own destiny, and that everyone is fighting a battle somewhere, somehow. So is it all about surrender or fight?
Why would you fight a battle if you believe that your destiny is prewritten for you? Wouldn’t the result be the same? Isn’t the name of the winner of that battle written somewhere, and the end result is inevitable? So why would you waste time and energy fighting, instead of completely surrendering and watching your destiny unfolding in front of your eyes?!
But, what if you don’t believe in prewritten scenarios, and you want to write your own life, using your own words, drawing your own lines, refusing the surrender, would that take you away from God? Would that make you the black sheep in your community?
What if the story that you want to write will not suit your surrounding, would that make you selfish? Would that make you irresponsible?
What if the change that you want to make takes a lot of time, would you be able to give it all you got? Would you be able to wait patiently?
What if you choose patience at its best form, and you decide that every single day will start with a grateful smile, and every single day will be a new start. While waiting, you keep reminding yourself that today is full of hope and tomorrow, you will be one step closer to your dream.
Dreams can come true, miracles do happen, you just have to believe from within you and trust, that you will get to wherever you want to…just be patient!
