“If you are patient enough to take pleasure in your existence’s unfolding, the journey from one pinnacle to the next will seem to take no time at all.”
The key word here is patience. I think patience comes with age and wisdom. The young seem to always be apprehensive about their existence while the older we get the less we care or the more it feels we know who we are.
Life is a journey to be sure, however we choose how to frame that journey into our own existences. If life is hard then perhaps that is what we need at the time to learn the lessons that need to be learned.
The older we get the less we need to learn. However we never stop learning or at least I hope we don’t.
