    As I mentioned in last week’s blog post, participating in the Personal Art Challenge with a Reflection theme, I also did some reflecting about life.

    One of the images that I created was a reflection of a tulip bloom.  My desire was to create a water reflection of that bloom using photo software.

    Well, that didn’t work out.  Hours later I had not been successful in learning how to make a water reflection out of a non-water photograph. I did, however, learn how to create the illusion of that tulip bloom being reflected as if it was lying on a mirror.

    How many times in life have we planned to do something in a certain way, or we planned to take a specific route and things just did not work out the way we had planned.

    With a combination of hope and perseverance I was able to create a reflection image.  It wasn’t the image that I had set out to create, but it was an acceptable image and I learned  a few new software settings while trying to create my original planned image.

    Wouldn’t you agree that we could compare that to other life challenges?

    Often things don’t work out as we had planned but if we approach our challenges in life hoping for success (however success may look) and we persevere until we get an acceptable result, we may discover that we are successful even when success is defined differently than we thought it would be!  

    Here’s hoping that each of you reading this will tackle any challenge that appears on your path in life, with the most positive attitude to persevere and eventually find yourselves successful in whatever way matters most!

    Comments and shared experiences are always welcome and encouraged.
