Like a Cactus

I planted this cactus about 3 years ago it was just like one paddle. I don’t know what it’s really called so I’m gonna call it a paddle. And I never thought it would grow over the course of the last two and a half years it gained 1 then 2 then a couple more and I was so well pleased with it. But in the last 6 months this cactus has so many babies I have lost count. And I feel like that is a metaphor for life… that whatever you truly want. Plant it, know that it will take time, time to germinate, time to acclimate to the conditions, time to find just the right amount of sunlight and nourishment and you will see in time your dreams will come to fruition, just be patient. I’m saying this more so to myself.
Out of patience come everything you ever desired, that is for your greater benefit.
