They say patience is a virtue, only a fool would choose to argue yeah?
They also say patience is not necessarily the ability to wait, but rather the manner in which you wait. But I would say this in addition; Be it the manner or ability to wait, it all boils down to the continual understanding of patience as a man grows into complete adulthood.
Truth be told, life is lived one day at a time. Novels and memoirs are written one word at a time. A house would only fit when the bricklayer uses a brick at a time. Step by step gets the success train running.
We often desire change yeah but we still love to maintain and stay in all the good feels right? Something just has to give folks. When change comes, it should be accepted with two arms.
The distance seems impossibly long but attainable.
Life’s not a sprint. You don’t have to run your lungs out to be succesful. Nah!!
Slightwork and metal upgrading which requires much studying and having an open ear. Patiently wait for the “good days” and always bask in the euphoria of wonders of the past. It gets better 😉
Life is a marathon. slow but steady if you have to. A quick pace here and there but don’t fag yourself out when the race is not finished. While we are never promised tomorrow, we can still hope there will be one and it will be better than today.
Put one foot in front of the others. Do that in the good days, do that in the bad days. It’s not bad when you don’t have all of the answers. That’s when you start asking the right questions.
Consistency and dedication is key my friends.
And that’s how you build your wall. A brick at a time!
…watch out for #TheDissident
