“To climb steep hills requires a slow pace at first” The Life of King Henry VIII by the Shakey Spear(e) man
Hills, like life, require patience (yes a bit of a theme considering Wendesday Wisdom this week) to reach the summit. Whether it’s doing the Five Peaks or trying to get through a co-worker’s melodramatic retelling of something rather dull. It all piles up. You could also liken it to a new skill. Where the patience of having to apply yourself is taken over by the want of it.
Currently, I’m sitting in the swathes of my own attempt of patience. We will see if I have passed the start of my hill or if I need to keep trying some more soon.
