Handling the Hurdles
Profound Thought for the Day:
"Life is not supposed to be devoid of disappointments, hassles, frustrations, and the like. It's not a matter of "if" they come, but "what". The "what" is your actions. What will you do when those challenges come your way. If your "why" is big enough, you'll proceed and keep moving forward. "
Someone wrote about a few challenges they were facing and this came to mind. No, this wasn't a quote from a well-known author, I actually thought of these words! I guess reading all those inspirational and motivational books rubbed off on me! I was about to write this in my response, then I thought, "Wait a minute...that's really good! I should create a post!"
I've been away from the platform for most of April. I won't go into he gruesome details other than to say that the issue I had with my laptop earlier in April - which inspired me to write my post,"Lemonade Anyone?" - was not resolved as I had thought. I had already missed half of March due to another mishap, so when this happened, I was just too emotionally frustrated to write about it, which actually worked out perfectly since I didn't have use of my laptop.
So often, it seems as if people almost feel guilty when they hit those roadblocks. Why? Or they speak as if the hurdles shouldn't even exist! But they do exist! Everything is not always going to be smooth sailing, with sunny skies, cute puppies and cake. It was extremely frustrating being without my laptop for almost 2 months, but in the back of m mind, I knew that once everything was fixed, I'd be back! During my absence, I started a 12-week computer program class - FREE!!! - just 4-days a week. So although I was away from the platform, at least I was able to still stimulate my mind.
So...here I am, beginning again, again... Some have their BFF's...just call me the BAA gal.
So whether you have another hurdle to jump over or climb under, just keep moving forward. And always...
Strive to Thrive,
