The first word that came to mind when I thought of the letter C for today was Challenges. Then “calendar.” Then “cookies.” Gotta love the flow there. But “challenges” came first, and it’s been weighing pretty heavily on my mind.
I think in life we have so many challenges to face, so many struggles to go through to get to where we’re supposed to be. I think it’s our challenges that help shape who we are. If we didn’t go through the things we did, would we really be the people we are today?
And also, what defines a challenge?
Hubs and I have struggled a great deal since we got together. Mostly because there have been many obstacles to get over so we could get to where we are today. We moved, got married, had a baby, bought a house, lived in hotels why trying to buy said house. There is no challenge that we’ve faced that we haven’t overcome.
But that brings to mind some of my current challenges in life. Keeping the house clean. Teaching the Boy everything. Being more social. All are things I find difficult, but I tackle on a daily basis because I know there is nothing but benefits on the other side. But there are some that are just plain near impossible, and it’s hard to see their benefit until you get to the other side.
What are some challenges you’ve faced today? This week? In life?
