Dear Diary | Young Hopeful

First off, I just have to say that I love TheDailyLove and I honestly read it EVERY DAY. Mastin Kipp, the site's CEO/Founder as well as the other Editors just seem to always have the words. & though I often find each post to be uplifting and inspiring - sometimes it's just plain ole scary. ..Because you begin to feel as if you're mind's being broken into. ..Like how could you have ever known that I needed this post, these words, right now!? ..I think it's a great thing though - sometimes the people around us aren't able to council us effectively. & it's possible that this site may not be able to do that for you. ..All I know is, it works for me and if you haven't read it before - you should definitely give it a few minutes of your time.

..Now, let's get into what we came here for:
I was on the site today and - as per usual- I came across a paragraph that spoke to me. Only because those are the words that I'd use right now had I been writing this post without an excerpt from another source. 
Mastin's words were: 

I have had more fear clusters show up in the last 90 days than I have in years before that. The more I walk along The Path, I am beginning to see a pattern. The pattern is that RIGHT BEFORE something AWESOME happens, all the sh*t seems to hit the fan. Right before any major shift in my life, things get a little crazy and there seems to be no way out. The reason why I am where I am has more to do with sitting through those moments and letting them pass than it does my writing talent or any other talent. I think my greatest talent is the ability to just sit with things a little longer and not run when things get weird and crazy.

You know what I think? ..I think we share a mutual talent. I don't know if I've always been this way, but at some point in my life I began to notice my way of coping with hardships and it goes much like this: Sit & Deal.     I call myself Young Hopeful ..because I always believe that something greater's in the making. ..Take my current situation for example. - I won't say - I cry, bxtch, and moan but it's only because I'm frustrated. If we were to get really technical, every thing that seems to be unfortunate has turned out to be more fortunate for me than a little bit. I haven't reaped great rewards but I'm witnessing the little ingredients being dropped into this grand pot for the making of a great soup. ..So I'll wait. 'cuz hell, ..I'm hungry! & I believe.
