Working with my hands

Doing manual labor can be so satisfying and fullfilling.
With some simple tools and materials you can build all sorts of things, whether a bookshelf or a little table. It requires care and attention, but then seeing the end result can make you so happy. Building something, crafting something is what we are supposed to do in life. Sometimes you literally build something, sometimes its more abstract – like building your friendships or your career.
Either way, it is a process which needs practice and dedication. You dont learn it within one or two hours, but you improve with every time.
Becoming a good Friend for somebody requires time and dedication, just like becoming a skilled carpinter.
