Just a heads up. Those good times you're waiting for, or that easy road, or that long prolonged time of drama free living. It's Never going to happen. Things in this life are never going to be easy. The road is never going to be smooth. Drama will always be there right over the horizon.
What will change is You. The ability to strengthen your tolerance for all the hiccups that life brings on a daily basis. The wisdom to overlook petty bullshit like traffic or a wrong lunch order,or somebody that owes you money, and not let it ruin your day. I personally have never even cared about gas prices. Even when I had No Money, I knew I needed to go places in my car. So I just got what I could afford, and kept rolling for as far as I could go.
So don't get bogged down by this normal life. Don't think everyone and everything is out to get you. It's always going to be You vs the world till the day you die. Build up your armor and battle through it as it comes. Don't ever wait for things to get easier. Get stronger so it makes it easier.
