The Strength to Change Slowly

Bit by bit, day by day, things change.

Blowing wind and dripping water can reshape mountains.

The challenge is persisting. It will seem like failure is imminent at every step. It will seem like things are going backwards and nothing is working.

Strength, in tarot cards, is a picture of a girl holding open the mouth of a lion. Strength is in patience, persistence, gently and slowly bending the world to your will.

We idolize sudden, cataclysmic changes. They make cool movies.

But the truly important changes are the ones that happen slowly, like growing babies, shifting seasons, and breaking day.

The challenge is finding the strength.
