Slogging Away...

I keep waiting for some earth-shattering revelation to occur to me so I can blog about it and inspire you.  This is a bit delusional, I realise, but one of my greatest joys in life is to encourage people, and I really do wish I had something inspiring to share.

Unfortunately, most of life is lived in the "uninspiring" times - the times when we slog through the day and hope we have enough energy to finish it.  Most of our time is spent in the valleys where our (drumroll, please) character is developed.  And yes, it sucks.

Every now and then, however, we catch a glimpse of the triumphant, a glimmer of something beautiful that inspires us to keep going and persevere despite the odds, despite what the naggers and naysayers would tell us, and despite the protests of our tired muscles. Every now and then a spark of courage kindles the fire within us that begs us to dig deeper and find new reserves of strength and resolve. 

So put on your red cape (perfect for saving the world), put on your wellies (perfect for slogging), and keep at it!  Eventually, you're bound to move some mountains.

I've been *there* for the past 3 weeks with a flu-turned-abominable-virus... I felt like life was passing me by - and i had only just [officially] started on a new phase...

Thank you for putting it in such an encouraging light!

I always like to bring along my Lasso of Truth and stylish bullet deflecting wrist cuffs, too. ;)

Wonder woman! You can do it! Praying your flu-turned-virus passes soon. Not fun! Hang in there! For what it's worth, I'm cheering you on...
