Rivers are a valuable and treasured source of life for many people all around the world. Every river has a starting point and an endpoint just like our lives do. A river usually starts small and gets bigger, just like us growing as we move along, avoiding obstacles that try to block our path. So try to stay patient and let the river run its course.
