There are a host of behaviors we can practice. We can practice with perseverance and dedication to learn to play a musical instrument with skill. The more we practice, the better we become.

This is typical when you first begin. However, with practice you come to learn that the part you thought would be so easy may not be. With love, one does not become discouraged. One contemplates what needs to be done and allows it to show you how it chooses to unfold.
