Beautiful things take time. I might think I have lost my chance to prove myself one year ago, but God always reminds me that I can never be defined by a 'failed' remark and that there will always be a chance and a reason to try again. Losing is winning, they say. It's either you win or you learn. Just because you have lost once, doesn't mean you're a total failure. It is when you give up on dreaming that you have lost.
Best things are worth the long wait and process. During this waiting season, I have learned to appreciate the value of waiting and I think it's beautiful - not rushing things and not looking at the situations but looking at the price. Yes, life may be tough, but I learned to accept that this is what it takes to have what God has prepared for me (not the things that I forced for myself).
