I onced supervised a house project in the village and I noticed how tedious it was to build the foundation.
In fact it is one of the most painstaking aspect of building a house.
Despite all the effort put in to build it, it's later covered with concrete when done, no one sees it or talk about it.
The only time you'll hear people talk about it is when the building falls or have cracks. At that time everyone seems to fault the foundation of the building.
Because a foundation has to be built strong enough so it can carry the weight of anything it was designed for.
Maybe you are presently at that stage of building your own life's foundation.
It will definitely be tough, painstaking, tasking and hard to build, but it is necessary because it will be the very foundation that will hold you up for the rest of your life.
So, I'll urge you to make yours stronger.
When we marvel at beautiful edifice note that their foundations were even deeper to hold what you and I admire.
It all depends on how you want it.
Make it stronger.
In the course of building yours, you'll feel the pain or the nudge to give up, when you feel such, path yourself on the back and say, "My future self will thank me. I need to go through these necessary process in order to enjoy my success."
When you start seeing the pain, stress and hard work you put in this way, they won't look burdensome or overwhelming to you rather something you need to do to get to where you have always dream of.
It has to be hard so it can support the weight of whatever you could dream of for yourself.
So, whatever challenge or struggle you're been going through are there to prepare you for what's coming especially your dreams.
I know you dream of a beautiful and magnificent edifice.
So, embrace it wholeheartedly because you can and you'll be glad you did.
