Have you ever watched a little one get all caught up in the excitement of learning and mastering a task--taking that first step, putting the puzzle piece in the right place, realizing that letters make a familiar word?
When the world is new, challenge is just part of the landscape, and working at mastering everyday challenges provides enormous satisfaction.
How sad that we sometimes grow to resent our challenges, the very sparks that used to add excitement and passion to our lives! I see this every day in those who resent the trying aspects of their jobs or their relationships.
Today I will work on creating a culture that embraces the challenges that life presents. We all have the opportunity to experience each moment as the one that teaches us something valuable about ourselves and helps us become the best we can be!
