I watched ‘The Snowman’ over Christmas.
I will take this quote from the 40 year old classic with me into 2019:
The snow fell steadily – all through the night.
It will remind me that, sometimes, things simply must take time.
Sometimes, there’s nothing to force.
You just have to be patient for things to work as they should.
I love snow because when it first falls it is a great leveller. Everything is white and clean and bright.
But it takes time to happen. Silently and slowly.
Millions of snowflakes dancing together over hours to create this blanket.
So this David Bowie quote will remind me to be patient.
To sometimes just watch and wonder and let things happen.
Great things take time.
