‘The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.’ ~Moliere
Sometimes it just takes more time. But it will happen.
Or sometimes it’s going at a pace that’s as expected or as usual, but it just requires more patience.
And sometimes it just means going slower to make it as best as possible, or to achieve and produce more.
And sometimes that’s just the way it is, whether it happens or not.
But no matter what, most times you can’t control the outcome and it can either take you a split-second or a whole lifetime to reconcile yourself with that reality.
