"Patience is not sitting and waiting, it is foreseeing. It is looking at the thorn, and seeing the rose, looking at the night, and seeing the day. Lovers are patient and know that the moon needs time to become full."
~ Shams Tabrizi, philosopher & spiritual instructor of Rumi
This bit of poetic wisdom, written centuries ago, spoke to my writer's soul.
Writing is staring at a blank page and seeing a story, then putting in the hard work and time to make that story appear in reality.
Writing is all about patience. ~ Mina Khan
