Work in prog·ress
an unfinished project that is still being added to or developed.
(in accounting) the total value of the materials and labor for unfinished projects.
“the board had estimated the value of its work in progress”
How about in real life? Can you still define yourself a “work in progress”? How can you say you are a work in progress?
Is it when you haven’t reached your goal yet?
Is it when you still don’t have the material things that crave for?
Or it’s because you still don’t know where you want to be in life?
Telling you’re a “work in progress” has a lot of meaning. We may or may not disclose the real meaning behind this phrase but it also defines how much we all wanted to better ourselves more.
Not just for ourselves but, also for those people we care for. Family, friends and lover. We want to better ourselves more for them. It’s not for personal gain like when we were young. Not anymore.
We all came from different walks in life and with different struggles. Either we make something of our experiences or dwell on it is up to us.
I’d rather be a work in progress that aims for the better, than sit in the corner and cry and curse the world for being unfair to me. We’re all still in a “dog eats dog” world. It’s up to you if you want to be the alpha of your life or be the grunt that’s being pushed around.
Now. How to end this eloquence (does it count as one? I can’t find a word that’s lesser than this one). I don’t know myself. It’s still a work in progress ?
