VJWC: Driven to Succeed

Children understand the mechanics of accomplishment:  take a risk, try and try again, and bask in the accolades that follow.


As I grow older, I wonder at what point in life I lost that simple understanding.  Now, as I watch my granddaughters, I feel compelled to regain some of that old spunk:  tackle the new, and be more forgiving of mistakes, in favour of rewards that follow.  I want to be new again – to view life through the lens of accomplishment.


I always thought that age brings wisdom, and with wisdom I could succeed.  Now I see that all I needed was a little inspiration, sprinkled with a modicum of free-spiritedness.

Hope you are all having an inspired week!

(V.J.’s Weekly Challenge starts every Monday.  This week we considering the concept of accomplishment.  Feel free to jump in at any time.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. I love this V.J.! Like you, I’m at that point where I want to regain my spunk. I’ve started taking baby steps in that direction. I guess when you get to our young age, you realize you need to take some risks and really enjoy the time you have left on this earth.😊
