I had a dream one night. It was vivid, I could taste my thoughts and emotions.
My dream was a hill with millions of people climbing it, as if there was no other way to go but up. Those that even lost their step still fought to get back up that hill. I saw this and was so amazed, but I didn't even know where they were going.

I went up to a man that was right at the bottom. I asked him where he was going. I remember the look in his eye, sad yet egger to climb that hill. He told me he was going to die. I was shocked and asked him what he was dying of. He replied back to me, "I don't know, but I will know when I make it to the top." I asked him to just go the other way and not climb the hill, to save himself from whatever he was talking about. He told me, "in this life you climb" ...amazed by his comment, I stepped back and watched him. I woke up.

Patience obtains all things.

As one is to love another, yet they lose each other, will patience not let them find love again? If you have patience will you not see the problem? Will it not come to you with time as you heal? Or is it truly the end for someone that has lost love? Is it officially over?
I believe if you have patience you give yourself the benefit of the doubt, and you wait and mature through even the worst pain. Like the man who was climbing the hill, why was he so close to the bottom, yet wanted to still climb? Did he have the patience to believe in himself, even if he rather just let the hill consume him? Did he find a value that was indestructible within him?

Everyone has the power to succeed over any struggle, but it's up to them to do so. It took me years of patience to even start understanding my pain, had I been climbing as well? Even if it felt like I was at the bottom? ...I think so, I think that journey uphill is to somewhere even non-believers will give the benefit of the doubt. I've survived many slips upon this hill, and I cannot do magic nor miracles, but I've made it this far for a reason. Keep an open mind, and of course an open heart as you climb through your struggles.
