I bought these flowers last week and a day or two after getting them, I started to think ‘erm, are they broken?’ (I’m impatient remember and currently in rehab).
None of them were opening up, but I left them anyway. Slowly, one by one they began to bloom.
It reminded me that there is a process to everything and how crucial it is to be patient, lest (I feel so fancy using ‘lest’) you miss your time to shine.
Do not prematurely abandon your ship, in hopes of ‘making’ it on someone else’s or resorting to ‘it just isn’t for me’ quips. Without you, it will not reach its destination and neither will you. If you believe in it, deep down in your marrow, then continue to nurture it, no matter what anyone has to say.
Give it time, let your intuition guide you, and exercise patience- a lot of it.
P.s Patience is quiet, steady perseverance; even-tempered care; diligence.
