Omigosh, what a day.
With the exception of my beloved p90x, I worked straight for hours and hours. I’m currently building a community site that’s written in PHP (I know nothing about PHP) and I had to integrate PHP modules in specific formats.
In other words, I had to:
- Configure the site
- Figure out what needed to be done
- Research how to do it
- Research how to program the how-to-do-it
- Implement the idea
- Research why it didn’t work
The above steps were rinsed and repeated for…. gosh, I have not a clue, how many times.
BUT! I didn’t give up!
I found forums where experts resided, asked for help, received it, tried it, DIDN’T GIVE UP, tried other things, DIDN’T GIVE UP, and finally….right before beginners karate arrived, I solved the problem.
Drained I was, utterly drained. So much so I didn’t have the energy to do my beloved adult self-defense either. Wah.
But! I’m rather humbled by the fact…no matter what life hands me, I don’t give up. I choose to succeed and when I do fail, I learn from it….and use that as a stepping stone to the future success.
My gosh, I have to teach this to the kids.
When things don’t work out, don’t wait for others to rescue you – make it happen yourself.
I think I will call it a night now, I’ve earned it.
ps – want some great Mama Bear goodies?
