Patience is a virtue, laziness, a sin. We all harbor each within.
It is said that those who work hard will be rewarded, and the efforts of the lazy will be thwarted.
Myself? I am trying to find that fine line, where strength and patience align.
I work for things I love, at times patiently seeking guidance from above.
Other times, however, I tend to think I am more clever and end up doing whatever.
At this point, I tend to wonder, why is it that I fail? For my coffin, is it just one more nail?
It could be, but what if that’s not the case? What if all of my inpatient decisions are just a waste, to be filed in the garbage and erased.
Where would that leave me, though? Isn’t there something from my mistakes I can show?
Maybe not, but from them, I can learn a lot! So that is what I will try to do, after all, no one is perfect, even you!
