If You Are Going Through Hell... Keep Going

If You Are Going Through Hell... Keep Going
— Winston Churchill

I’ve got a lot on my plate.  As I try to juggle all that is going on, it seems I’m destined to have a lot of things go wrong.  Driving back from an event tonight, the traffic was backed up from who knows what, and I just kept thinking of all I had to do and all the things that had gone wrong the last two days.  Nothing earth shattering, but a series of things that I kept having to take care of.  The “I take three steps forward and four steps back” syndrome kept creeping in and it just seemed like it would never end. “I feel like I’m going through hell”, I said to myself in utter frustration!  Locked in the traffic jam without an alternative, I realized as the wise Winston Churchill once said, ” If you are going through hell, keep going.” that I too would just keep going and eventually the traffic would end, the problems would work themselves out, the plate wouldn’t be so full.   As an entrepreneur, we are faced with going through hell often enough. But if we keep plugging along, we will find we can get through just about anything. I had much to be thankful for and would focus on what was going right. Today my good friend Caren helped me (thanks Caren!) make my blog page a little more exciting (I think) with a new banner and hopefully with a bit more tweaking, we can figure out how to remove the surfer dude picture and add something a little more reflective of who and what I stand for. Hope you like the changes!
