Learning that things usually don’t go the way I want them.
Learning that ascents and descents can be overcome if you look for a bigger picture, usually at the end of the journey.
Learning that if you wait long enough, all the pieces of the puzzle will fit together, and the ones missing will show up.
Expect nothing, be grateful, and love your friend(…) as you love yourself.
and be extremely patient.
