According to the famous Aesop fable The Tortoise & The Hare, slow and steady wins the race. This means you should take your time to get to the finish line without rushing so you can catch a breath here. It takes a lot of patience to accomplish your dreams as there are obstacles that can get in the way by persevering those obstacles.
With this pandemic still going on, it's gonna take a lot of time and patience for things to go back to normal. The first half of 2020 has been rough so far that I hope the second half would get better. I also hope 2021 would be a perfect year.
For individuals with autism, slow and steady does win the race as it's supposed to teach them the true meaning of patience when they learn new skills to succeed.
Ever since I stayed home since the pandemic started, I haven't been going to the therapy center for days and I started showing some feelings of regret for not helping these kids that have autism like me get through these tough times. But I shouldn't regret it because I'm not using fear as an excuse, I stay home to do what's right for my health as well as for those individuals by practicing social distancing. Sometimes, staying at home can have its benefits such as learning and practicing new skills.
I've been working on my creative writing at home during this pandemic. Not only am I using the book 642 Things to Write About to help me with my writing, but I'm also using Grammarly as an additional reinforcer. I first heard of Grammarly after seeing an ad on YouTube, and I use Grammarly to help correct me on my writing because I want the final draft to be 100% accurate. Once I complete the final draft on my notebook, I call it a day in creative writing so I can catch a breath and decompress. It's important to take a break if you want to start a new process of something. This is a way for me to take my time without rushing to show that slow and steady wins the race.
