Sometimes you start out playing the sweetest melody on your guitar. It flows and reaches a point that’s exciting. You get into it. You’re jamming. It feels so good. But, sometimes you strum so hard that a string breaks. You can’t push through. You can’t keep playing, because that string is needed to keep the harmony, to make the music beautiful. If you keep going with that broken string, you fall flat. And, if you break another string, then it gets even worse.
Take the time to re-string the guitar. Take the time to stop, even though what you had going was so great. Taking a break and fixing what you can immediately, may give you time to start again, maybe slower this time and help you appreciate the piece more than you would have if you had just kept strumming.
There will be times in life and relationships that strings break. Be sure you fix them before you keep strumming. It could be the difference between a disaster and a masterpiece.
