If there were no dust on the mirror, there would be no driving need for it to be.

Something reminded me of that eventful year in class 4 when I went away to hostel, cajoled wheedled pleaded, but in a sense ran away. In the years after I’ve learnt that other skill- taking it, not answering back and staying quiet and staying the course. Both have their uses. Trick is to know when to use which particular trait. Half my life done and I still haven’t figured that out

Benefits to both qualities. I often walk with heavy paws even when I don't intend too. Sometimes smushing the pretty flowers, the ones that I like. I don't mean too. :<
