"Patience is a virtue", "the patient dog eats the fattest bone" these were sayings I used to hear growing up not so much these days. These were all ways to tell us that learning how to be more patient was a good habit to possess especially for us young ones (see 5 Ways to Maintain Good Habits). I remember that my friend, Z once replied to the patient dog quote by saying “because the fastest dogs have already eaten the meat” and everyone burst into laughter. It's funny but it shows the mentality of impatience that floats around. Who can blame us though? When you see that the fast life is very attractive and flashy. Patience usually wins but ironically you
have to be patient to see it happen.
As many of you receive your certificate, dressed up in your best attire, adorned with a gown and a hat (make sure you throw it up) and celebrating with loved ones. The next thing that happens is that you get hit with a reality cheque and it’s time to cash out. Many of you have wondered and pondered what to do with your life, balancing it with making money and having fun, spending time with loved ones and generally just being young. This post was inspired by graduation week in my uni, University of Essex, UK, shout out to all those graduating, congratulations!
