I’m sorry

I’m sorry for a few things. First, I’m sorry that I haven’t been around for you, but I’ve been really focused on my mammoth project.

Which brings me to the second apology.

It seems that some people thought that my writing about the struggles with a big frustrating project was complaining. That was not my intention. I hoped to be leading by example. I thought that if you could see me coming up against hairy obstacles and still pushing on – that maybe you would be motivated to tackle your own wooly mammoth. I’m really sorry if it came off as complaining.

The whole point is – I’m not that smart. Especially when it comes to techy stuff. If I can persist and actually reach my goal – you can too.

I’m really proud of myself. I only broke down in tears twice last week and I have made a lot of progress.

And it seems I’ve finally found out what is wrong with the car after having it looked at 4 times now, having the brakes replaced, tires rotated, and an alignment done. The noise is now on the front of the car. Its the tire.

So, it was a rough week for me, but I survived. A funny thing – that song with the line – “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” came on I don’t know how many times over the last week. I don’t know that I feel any stronger, but it hasn’t killed me yet.

I’m really sorry if the updates came off as complaining.

    Hey, don’t feel bad. We all have off moments and that’s what friends and family are for. We comfort each other in out times of need. How many times have you listened to other people’s complaints??

    You are doing great!! I really enjoy the blog. I look forward to opening up my email and seeing one from you!!

    Thanks a bunch.

    Actually, I have been struggling with some issues, myself, and your posts were right on target. I am still trying to stay focused on my goal, and trying to do a minimum of 5 things a day to get me there.

    I like how you make your posts personal, and I have never seen them as “complaining”. You have always been an inspiration to me. Keep doing what you are doing.

    P.S. My car went in the shop yesterday morning, and yesterday afternoon my washing machine died. Such is life.

    Life is a matter of battles,but quitting is not always be the solution for attaining and making one self productive… Stand and smile in order to touch the word of success…

    My old car had ‘serious problems’ and should only be driven short distances, I was told. I thought, perhaps, it was a tire, but was assured that it wasn’t. I’ve been tethered close to home for over a year because of it.

    Last week while driving to meet friends for lunch, my passenger rear tire began going flat. Uh-oh. Kept with the original plan. Friends didn’t show ~ we were at two different restaurants.

    I look for silver linings and believe that things have a way of working out. The ‘wrong’ restaurant shared a parking lot with a business that sold tires. Me and my old car hobbled and wobbled on over.

    After all four tires were replaced they told me the other, non-flat, rear tire was defective. Driving home, imagine my surprise to discover that the ‘serious problems’ with my car were gone. All of them.

    I believe that the trials in life, like the joys, are meant to be shared. Both can be encouraging. One can obviously be enjoyed by ourselves; but the other reminds us that we are not alone.

    Keep sharing …

    Thank you all for your feed back. That’s more what I was aiming for, all of us holding each other up. Life happens to us all, and its never convenient. I hope that together we all find the strength to keep on growing despite the set-backs.

    Thank you!

    I know tons of motivational songs that I really like, but I don’t have a clear favourite, as that changes every other month. Currently, I am in love with this relatively unknown song from the band ‘The Undeserving’, called ‘Something to hope for’.

    Hi Heidi,

    Isn’t it funny how different songs motivate you depending on the circumstances you’re dealing with?
