Laughing at challenges

I know, weird, right? Laughing at a challenge, me. I used to run or hide in a corner, complain and whine. Not anymore. I realize challenge is learning. I obviously learn slowly because many of you are probably saying, duh, we do this already. Hey, give me some credit here sometimes my brain is thick and stubborn. It's been a long road to this point, and as I look down the road ahead, it's longer, but I know (how, I don't know) that one day it can will happen. I just have to take the good with the bad and tackle those challenges head on with a smile. Oh and lots of chocolate helps.

Faces any challenges?

How do you tackle them?

Keepin' it short today. Go check out Joanne Fritz's giveaway's. A.S. King's EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS and Richard Peck's SECRETS AT SEA. Both are hardback and signed. Ends November 9th.

Have a great day!

  1. The trick is figuring out which challenges are worth pursing and how to approach them. I love challenging myself. It makes things more interesting.

  2. I think I'm hard headed too, so this is one I'm realizing over and over again, right there with you! I'm getting better and better about seeing the good in what at first seems like bad, but laughing? Not sure I'm there yet...LOL. Learning? OH YEAH! Always.

    Now faith that this WILL happen one day if I do the hard work and survive, I have that. Otherwise I would've given up long ago. :)

  3. I never thought I could learn about formatting, but I did. More than I ever thought. It's a challenge, and a nightmare at times, but it was worth the effort. Keep on keeping on. You WILL get there.

  4. If I laughed at challenges, I'd be laughing all day and out of breath! Seriously though, this is a wonderful way to look at things.

  6. I think laughing at challenges is a great method! I tend to drag my feet - just one step at a time. I try not to eat the whole elephant at once, because if I do that, the challenge overwhelms me and I never overcome that.

  11. Wow, Christine! Thanks for mentioning my giveaways!

    You think YOUR brain is thick and stubborn...

    Chocolate helps with everything. And tea. And a good read.
