Both of my girls like to watch this show called Yo Gabba Gabba. At first I thought this is weird. Strange characters and who is this DJ Lance? The more I have watched it the more I understand it. Perhaps I am just as weird as they are. Ha Ha. I really love the songs they play during the episodes. They always teach a lesson. The one that stuck out to me the most is called Keep Trying. Click on the link below to watch the video. I promise you will get the melody stuck in your head.
I think it’s important that our children know to always keep trying and never give up if something seems hard. I sang this with my three year old as we were potty training in October. We still sing it when she gets impatient and frustrated doing something. In fact, I like this motto for myself. I sing it often when I get frustrated about writing. My dream of becoming a published author seems so far away at times but I know this is what I want to be doing. I will keep trying and never give up.
Do you have some words of encouragement that you rely on when your story is not quite going where you thought it would or no ideas are coming?
