Sparks of Meaning

Sparks, hosted by McGuffy’s Reader has us shining a light on our lives and producing a quote that shares a positive image of what we are searching for.                                                     

 

 

If you were faced with a challenge of walking a mile. As you walked you became so tired you could hardly put one foot in front of the other but your determination said you must finish even if you crawled to the finish line. How good is that person going to feel when he makes it?

Can you really appreciate shoes? How about if you walked a mile without them….do you think you would appreciate them more?  Would your walk without shoes become a challenge and winning that challenge make you feel happy?                                                    

Each challenge we take brings us closer to our fellow men and women because we all face challenges every day.  How we handle these challenges divides the wimps from the winners.

    Overcoming challenges is indeed a wonderful feeling. Not giving up is essential and that’s what Sparks is all about I think. Being positive and making the changes so we are all better and kinder.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

    What a thoughtful post. Thank you for sharing, and making me laugh with the meme about the red dot. Happy early Thanksgiving!

    Oh, love how your revised header looks on the page! 🙂 And so funny to see Carl kitty psyching up to meet his impossible challenge. When I think of impossible challenges, I think about changing another person – like folks marry someone thinking they are going to change them. Better go chase the red dot.

    Carl can only catch that red dot when he believes he can. If you believe, anything is possible ( except for a turkey to turn into a swan right before Thanksgiving day!). Haha. Seriously, the only way to reach your goals is self belief and don’t give up! Then you can make your dreams reality.

    One of my favorite quotes from Thoreau is, “There is one consolation in being sick … the possibility that you may recover to a better state than you were ever in before.” The “sick” part, I’ve always read as “challenge.” We underestimate ourselves in just about every way and we don’t know what we’re capable of until we’re challenged 🙂

    Yes, how we handle life’s challenges really does define who we are at the core of our being. And, we never really know what we’re capable of handling until faced with what seems like an insurmountable challenge. It really makes life very meaningful.
