Oh boy, that beautiful smudge… it means you tried! What a great thing to leave behind. When you put your blood, sweat and tears (or other peoples’) into something it’s always better that it leave a little stain, a permanent mark lest people forget you fought hard. All the clean-cut success can’t hide from all those tracks and traces and trails. Anyone that’s a real somebody has left their little ambition stains smeared along the way on the walls that saw them cut their teeth. Getting to the top means you sometimes have to drag yourself through certain bottlenecks of unavoidable distress. Next time you see an ambition stain make sure you take a good long look. Understand that you’ll have your chance to leave one some day if you haven’t already.
