You know what. Braces hurt. Their bond on teeth that slowly inch their position north, south, east and west move the immovable. 

The trick behind a successful season of braces is pace. Slowly slowly slowly. Inching forever slowly towards the goaled jaw line.  

Bit by bit, the end game gets positioned. It dosent happen overnight but it does happen.  

 Don't lose sight of the power of the incremental or the slow to come to fruition.

What takes a bigger investment of time, energy and space reaps a much higher return when all things are said and done.
