If you do not already see evidence of how perseverance has paid off, then you're about to. But this reassuring development needs you to make a point of stopping to acknowledge it. You could be so used to applying effort in a specific area that you forget to accept when you've done enough. Stopping briefly might also allow well-deserved praise or recognition to find you, too.
An unexpected development could conceal a hidden advantage. But to spot what's positive within whatever occurs, look closely at the change it offers. It might take an existing or a budding bond down a very new and different path. But could this be a breath of fresh air that was needed? Go with this intriguing 'flow.' You're likely to prefer the destination once it becomes clearer.
