I don't know if this is really true or not, but the joke is in the irony.
Thanks for reading and supporting. Busy writing these days, apologies for lower output.
[4-panel borderless comic strip of a cartoon girl with a braid, hugging her knees. The heading reads, "It's totally okay to be still figuring it out at any point in your life." Panel 1, the girl has her head down and says, "I keep making mistakes and getting it all wrong..." Panel 2, she flips her head back and exclaims, "Why am I such a slow learner!?!" In panel 3, a tortoise ambling by says wisely, "Don't worry. Pace is arbitrary." In panel 4, there's a beat, then the tortoise starts walking off and adds, "Come on, I'll race ya."

Someone once asked me why I had to be saturated in something before I learned from it. “Why” is such a paralyzing question. What I took from that question was to try and learn more quickly and, as a result, sidestep misery as a result. The irony is, occasionally, I actually pull it off. But, just as often I don’t. Food for thought. Good work today. I get it, it makes me think, and it’s useful. Thank you, Connie.

Delighted to hear it. I can't wait to see the product of your hard work. Hopefully, I can get an autographed copy.
I was thinking about this sort of thing the other day. Working on a quilt project I suddenly realised no one could do what I wanted to do without an even-feed foot on the sewing machine. That's why all the tutorials you find on line say to use one! But I was trained from a very young age to think that if things went wrong it was my fault, I was just stupid or not bright enough to do it right. Can't fault a worker if they don't have the proper tools!
