A challenge is a good thing. It changes up the routine. It forces emphasis in specific areas while other areas are neglected. In a rosy world, all challenges would be short-lived; self-imposed and only for personal growth. Unfortunately that’s not the kind of challenge a large percentage of the world’s population have the luxury of experiencing. Their challenges are more dire – poverty, hunger, loss, despair, victimization – the kinds of challenges most of us can’t fathom. On that note I laugh at myself as I look back on the daily blogging challenge that is about to come to an end. How grateful I am that this is my only challenge.
