Fear not a long journey.



Theseus says: "I have learnt that it is important to adapt and work well with any given situation, especially when it is not to your expectation or in your favor. This will push you to use the circumstances to find other ways that will not be taken if not for the limitations or changes that have been imposed. This change can be for the better, I discovered. So when we are faced with problems, the question to ask ourselves is not how tough or long the road has become, but do we really possess the ambition to push on or will we simply give up?"
