I was just leaving a comment on Christopher's blog, he who writes the most poignant poetry, and what I said struck me a bit so I thought I would share it.
We all need reminding sometimes.
"The days when I am most at peace are those when I know I am exactly where I am supposed to be, regardless of the 'rung' I have achieved.
The days I am in despair are the days I have forgotten this."
Even though I had in mind a spiritual path when I wrote this, it applies to everything does it not. Everything takes the time it takes, and we all get there in our own ways.
The trick, for me, is to remember occasionally that I am but a human being and I learn by my mistakes.
Have a nice day!
