I need it right now…
Let me start by saying that sometimes in a self-love journey the greatest ingredient is patience. It is like sitting in a car and you desire to push the pedal to see if you can fly in this machine. You want to fly. The temptation is sweet, and the pedal is right there, 10 cm from your big toe. The road is clear, and the moon is your finish line. All you want to do is go as fast as you can without fearing the consequences. You feel out of control, and you need to feel…. Just feel.
Push the pedal and go as fast as you can.
Get out of the car and take a walk.
Just drive and forget your feelings and go home.
Whatever you choose to do, have the patience to decide what you want because whatever you do is important. Everything you do is important. So be patient and think about what you really want. Sometimes your head gets so clouded, your emotions so wild that you just want to feel something else that takes you away from everything. Be patient and show your strength, be patient and hold on. Be patient and breath.
That breathe is what you need. Inhale and feel your chest moving upwards towards the clouds and exhale releasing that energy that is tormenting you. Keep breathing until you feel slightly more composed. Your patience is a skill. Patience is state of endurance under difficult conditions, and the more patient you are, the more you love yourself.
“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.”
– Robert H. Schuller
“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”
– Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Here is a bit about me: Name is Wuisa! I’m a nonconformist nomad, adventurer and seeker of pleasure. A twenty-one-year-old explorer. In search of those petit unforgettable blissful moments in life. Born in Bogotá, Colombia in the Andes Mountains where fall-like weather is eternal. I’m in my last semester of college at Randolph College in vintage Lynchburg, Virginia, taking 20.5 academic credits. An Environmental Studies major with a minor in French. I love to stay busy and go for long distance runs in the forest. If sunbathing naked were a sport, I would have countless gold medals. I find Ayn Rand’s views on objectivism brilliant, and I think Chuck Palahniuk is a creative genius. I am obsessed with Frida Kahlo‘s paintings and Pablo Neruda’s Poems. In my spare time, I write poetry, cook and watch foreign films. I promise you this, one day I’m going to stop whatever I’m doing, buy a ticket to Paris, then buy a ridiculously expensive camera and sleep in a tent near the Eiffel Tower. Never forget inspiration is endless. Pas.
