It's easy to feel impatient, to fee like we are stagnant or moving backwards, when we recognize that the world doesn't change fast enough to our liking.
Remember that we were never meant to finish the job. This daily work of ours is part of an ever emerging work that is carried forward by more than just us in this lifetime. We do what we can, in the time that we have. We live such that when the day comes to lay down the work, others see what we have done and muster the will to pick it up.
