Keep trying. Don’t give up. Never give up.

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.

Yo Gabba Gabba- Keep Trying Video

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?

    These are the words I keep repeating to myself when I feel the urge to give up! My problem is that I’m still having an internal battle over what I should pursue as a career. I know what I reeeeeeeeeeeallllly want to be doing (art/painting), but I also can’t seem to give up on the idea of engineering either. But, engineering seems near impossible at this point in my life with my job and lack of sleep. I feel like the classes that wouldn’t/shouldn’t even be a challenge for me under normal circumstances, are very challenging due to everything else I have going on. Painting, on the other hand, I can learn without pursuing a degree and without the stress of school. I guess it’s hard to give up on a dream/idea that you’ve had since you were 8 years old. ;o) (I drew a picture in my journal when I was 8 and wrote that I was going to be an artist when I grew up…. that thought/desire has never left me.)

    I am happy to see that you’re pursuing your dream of writing and that you’re taking some steps to make it easier to accomplish that! I know you can and will do it! No time like the present, right? Time will just keep flying by whether we’re pursuing our interests or not. Good luck and I’ll keep watching your progress. :o)

    Love, Wendy
