Life. It's like a puzzle.
At first, the pieces don't make sense. They have just been taken out of the box, and you can only look at the picture on the front thinking that one day, your puzzle is going to look like that. Sometimes, we are too eager to complete our puzzle, and we rush into it. But what happens when you finish it but still have more spare time?
What do you do with your life when you have finished everything you have ever wanted to do? Most people just wait around for their final moments, but do you want to be like most people? Other times, people don't finish their puzzle. There are always those few pieces that just seem so certain to stop you in your tracks. You get frustrated, and you quit. Right? Many do.
Sometimes, life is like a puzzle. Something that you just have to take a break from. You can't finish it all in one day, and other days, you just can't get finished with something fast enough. You rush and rush into it. At times, we make mistakes. We're human. We misplace those pieces, we lose the box, we get delayed. Love, work, and stress get in the way. They distract you, worry you, or just plain annoy you. And you can only wait for that storm to pass, and then continue with your puzzle.
There are days that we don't find the correct place for the pieces of our puzzles. And that's just fine. But be sure to find the correct spot; whether it be now or later, do it. So, make your puzzle look great. Don't mess it up by drawing on the picture, or quitting, or messing up your progression.
Finish your puzzle. Make it look like the picture on the box.
Make it the way you want.
