Everything in life takes time.
Success, love, even a silver lining.
Because we can't see the outcome before things happen, our patience can be tested. As well as our learning.
None of us, in our right minds, want to deal with the challenges before the gift that it brings us in the end.
Wouldn't it be nice to get to the end to where the 'Happily Ever After' is, instead of having to turn every single page, before?
Of course! We are only human.
But the results we receive after we have done the grunt work, dealt with the blood, sweat, and tears, is only that much more rewarding.
If we were given everything we only ever hoped for with a golden spoon, how would we revel in the glory of all of our well deserved hard work; if we never had to work hard, at all?
