Obstacles Happen

I’ve bounced off some obstacles lately.  This post helped me remember that obstacles are a chance to learn and try again.  No one is likely to care more about my dreams than I do, so it’s up to me.  Or not.  That’s my choice too, but so far, I’d rather get back up and keep trying.  So much in life is outside of our control.  We can still adapt, though, and do the best we can.  How do we know it will work?  I don’t think there are any guarantees.  But to strive without guarantee of success is the best that humans can do.  Ulysses has long been a hero of mine.  Why?  Tennyson captures the epic hero with: “To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
