On Patience

8-14 January 2017


I sometimes would think about how life is one long wait which only leads in the one destination or end – death. Pretty grim, right? But there is truth in that. All of us, in varied possible ways, will cease to exist.

Feeling rather uninspired the past week, I reflected again on where I am in my life. I am in a stable job, able to pay our bills and put food on the table. Everything is fine.That is until I recall what I said before – my wish to be able to leave a mark. I am not sure how I am doing in that part.


Everything seems to slow down to a point where I feel like I’m stagnant. Maybe I am always looking for a more obvious development. And with my limitations, I don’t think I should expect that on a daily or even a weekly basis.

I was never a patient person. knowing that, I seem to be constantly put into a position that is teaching me that. While it is causing me much distress, I am thankful for that.

So I will continue to wait and hope and pray. And that does not mean I’ll just wait idly. The wait is an exercise on perspective. While going through my days, I have to keep mind that is eager for the good things that will come.

The artworks are made using Sakura Koi Watercolors and Unipin Fine Line pens (0.05,0.1, 0.3, and 0.5) on Monologue soft sketchbook.
