" Kab Banega? "
(When will the mud house be ready?)
A question we hear from every villager, relative, friend, Tom, Dick, and Harry.
Building the hand-sculpted mud house has been an extraordinary journey in patience— a life's masterclass that redefined its true meaning for us.
Patience is not just about waiting; It is about adopting the right attitude and temperament while navigating delays and challenges.
We realized that patience is not only a virtue but a meta-skill essential for our health, relationships, and entrepreneurial journey.
There's a famous quote—unclear who said it—
" Most people overestimate what they can achieve in a year and underestimate what they can achieve in ten years."
It resonates with our experience. Despite our heartfelt efforts, we overestimated our achievements. We've learned that good things take time, effort, and nurturing.
Patience should not be confused with procrastination or complacency.
What matters is progress.
The renowned podcaster and author of "The 4-Hour Workweek," Tim Ferris, often cites the quote by Jenny Sauer-Klein, co-creator of acro yoga —
"No hurry, no pause."
It reminds us to be patient and relentless, continuously moving forward, one step at a time.
Living in the countryside has made nature our teacher.
Each day, we're reminded that nature operates at its own pace— the trees don't rush to bloom, and the river doesn't fret about reaching its destination.
Nature doesn't hurry and yet gets everything done.
We humbly share this valuable lesson from our life in the countryside —embrace patience. Trust the process, whether you're constructing a mud house, nurturing relationships, or pursuing your dreams.
Be patient with results and impatient with your actions.
Witness the magic that unfolds gradually, then suddenly.
With heartfelt gratitude,
