You see the fog? Yes. Can you feel it? No. But you can feel what it does to you. It blurs your vision, it makes it hard for you to reach the destination;Sometimes you just collide into something. Colliding is an accident, obviously. It has to happen someday, even if there is no fog. But when you collide, it is up to you to decide whether you break down or discover your strengths.
Fog isn't always bad. By going into the wrong places, you discover what to avoid and where not to go ahead. Fog might make everything blurry, but it also makes so many things clearer-or maybe just clear. You don't see a stone in the path and you trip; You're learning to be careful. Every hurdle, every thorn that pricks your foot, every step that you stumble upon, enables you to step wisely.
Wisdom is over-rated. You see, if you want to be wise you must learn to make mistakes. You must not be afraid to fall. And patience is necessary for that. Winning is knowing what you are capable of and knowing you tried your best to discover who you are. Who you are is a gift of God. It is up to you to discover it. And in the process you will fall and rise and start over a million times. Don't be afraid and don't give up.
For soon you will win, yourself, and then be wise!
