Discovering yourself is the same as piecing a puzzle together. Because of this, many people never reach the core of who they are. A puzzle takes both time and patience, along with failing to find the right missing pieces. When building a puzzle, you must commit to time and endless searching until the pieces fit just right. A puzzle is created with a specific design on how the pieces are meant to fit together, as the same for our discovering our true being. Our true self is both complex and detailed, with many unique pieces that only fit us. No puzzle is identical to another puzzle, as goes the same for people.
So where do we began to piece our puzzle together? We begin by starting with an outline, as you would a puzzle. You take the basic pieces of what you want the puzzle to look like and begin building the framework. Once you have the framework, you start to flip the other puzzle pieces over and try to place them in your framework. Sometimes the piece fits and other times it may need to be moved to the side, for a later part of the puzzle. Each piece of your puzzle has a significance, even if the significance does not seem relevant at the time. The piece will later show you a significant answer to your puzzle, if you look for it. Each piece matters, and cannot be manufactured or replaced by the wrong piece. If a wrong piece is chosen to your puzzle, then other areas of your life will also begin to not work out. When choosing the right piece of your puzzle, another piece or pieces will show up and snap together shortly after.
A puzzle is the creation of many pieces, and placing the pieces together takes time to master. Sometimes, we get upset when the pieces aren't fitting. When a piece is not fitting we have to back track which wrong piece we snapped in and remove it, then move forward to find the right one. As we move forward, we must hold perseverance through rejection and release fear of failure, to reach the end of the puzzle picture. Building the puzzle of ourselves is difficult and we will always create some failures along the way. But, as we work towards the end of puzzle picture of our true selves, we will feel a major sense of reward as our pieces have been strategical placed together to create a perfect masterpiece.
