What A Mess

Boy did I make a mess out of that last blog. I cannot even figure out how to clean it up either. I guess I live with it. Not only that but it appears that it shows I have posted several times the same post over and over again. I guess I need to be more careful. Or maybe, this is diffaintly apart of my learning curve. Of course I'm trying to use the linky tool as well. I had been doing pretty good at it. But..... Maybe I should just give that up. But Im really trying hard to learn all these things to make a great blog. Well... I just keep plugging away I know that is a part of learning. It is making the mistakes and learning from them. Growing and taking that knowledge and applying it to the next adventure. Getting up and brushing those knees off and starting again. Defeat isntant apart of this game plan. Success is! Success is what I will have.  I wont expect failure.

Because success is:

A success poem that encourages you to keep on keeping on.
by Edgar A. Guest
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
when the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
when the funds are low and the debts are high,
and you want to smile but you have to sigh,
when care is pressing you down a bit - rest if you must,
but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns.
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a fellow turns about when he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow - you may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than it seems to a faint and faltering man;
often the struggler has given up when he might have captured the victor's cup;
and he learned too late when the night came down,
how close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out - the silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
and when you never can tell how close you are,
it may be near when it seems afar;
so stick to the fight when you're hardest hit - it's when things seem worst,
you must not quit.

Do you have a favorite saying that helps you through learning process or tough times?

I haven't read your last post Belle, so I don't know what the mess is yet!! I will read it in a minute. Good for you for being so positive about it anyway. I think all of us women - and men- of a certain age are doing prett good with our blogging and trying to keep up with all this new technology. Perhaps we deserve a little pat on the back sometimes!! That poem is awesome! Would you mind if I borrowed it for my Blog ?

I love the blog. Don't beat yourself up when you are just beginning. Think of it this way, when a baby is learning to walk, they are constantly falling. If they gave up because they fell, then they would never learn to walk. But if you watch, every time the baby gets up and tries again, they always smile because they are amazed at what they can do.
