Arduous are all journeys. Hardship and suffering are tools and banes to our existence. They’re tools for betterment and examples of what we wish to change. They are banes while experienced and while we let them reside as such in our hearts. We all wish for comfort. At times we must be content to comfort ourselves with the thought that power is ours if we choose to wield it. As the saying goes, “Rome was not built in a day,” so we may not acquire all we seek in so short a time span. The greatness we seek we cannot feel unaccomplished about until we do nothing to go after it. Futile is the complaint without effort in the opposite direction. Fruitless also, is the ability without the practice and discipline to hone it into greatness. For all those who feel powerless they doom themselves. For those who are determined to seek out power in whatever form they can, they have courage true. One may say to exert power over another one or many is difficult but to overcome oneself and exert power there is by far the most difficult of all tasks we face in this life. To transform the self into what is sought after is not only courageous, but also inspirational to all those willing to see it. Hope will come with this courage. Each pattern is not set, only allowed to continue. My askance of you and pledge to myself to try for courage every day.
