Sometimes it's really easy to get discouraged with your own progress. In this mad modern world of instant gratification it's easy to forget that the biggest and most fulfilling of successes are more often the result of a long and steady climb rather than a meteoric burst. In our rush to reach this elusive destination of 'success' or 'accomplishment', it's easy to get frustrated and impatient with yourself in the process and forget to just enjoy the process of learning and being a beginning. Being an instant expert is not realistic, or even really very desirable. Give yourself a break! Enjoy being a beginner. It's in being able to enjoy this process that it can take you farther than you'd even imagined.
