When the going gets tough...


School gets tougher and tougher. When I'm faced with my own failures, I come home and work on tasks that I can accomplish successfully. And... I blog. I write, I read, I comment, I create. And I borrow.

I read Chris Guillebeau's Art of Non-Conformity. I get his updates by email because I don't want to miss a single one. His latest had a comment that struck me as appropriate for my situation and perhaps even beyond. He stated:

When faced with a choice between hope and fear, choose hope.

I searched for an appropriate picture to illustrate the statement and found this one. It's a photo taken during an Australian dust storm, of kookaburras calmly waiting for the storm to settle.

I hope I can continue to choose hope while I wait for my own dust to settle.

That's great advice--especially in election time!
