Duality

Have you ever woken up in the morning, feeling a strong urge to do what defines you as a person? It was one of those days for me today. I wanted to break out of “being mommy” and being a woman who constantly tries to be someone she isn’t – an understanding wife who is patient. I want to be who I yearn to be; filled with spontaneity, hope and a capacity to be truly happy without factoring in everyone else’s considerations.

It wasn’t a good day to see me in.

Nevertheless, I told myself to learn to wait. And I did, for 2 hours, with no returns.

A lot could have been done in those 2 hours, but the only thing that I got done was the lecture I gave myself on why the heck was I allowing myself to be stupid by being hopeful.

It is an unfortunate truth that if you want to be happy, you will have to be independent and get it yourself.
