"Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.

- Chinese Proverb

Never giving up

Do you ever get frustrated because things are moving too slowly in your life? Many people don't realize that building a foundation for success does not happen overnight. It is a slow process in which you are constantly working and learning. After all, that foundation must remain strong, even in times of failure or crisis. This takes time! You may have to remind yourself that "failing" is only failure if you quit; otherwise it's a learning opportunity. So don't worry if your life seems to be moving in slow motion. Concentrate on building a solid foundation and learning from your back steps. "

Brett and I are having setbacks with the engine for the boat. Yesterday I reminded him that we just keep plugging along. We still got a great deal on the engine and we knew we'd have to do some work to it. We're still progressing toward our goal.

I happy to be back on Spark, that I didn't give up. I have wonderful support here and am trying to stay healthier.
