It appears that the term CHALLENGES is the word of the day (or more appropriately – word of the week).
I’ve been working on a new project at work, which has brought my total computer illiteracy to the shining forefront for all to see! I couldn’t be more embarrassed, but at least I have a Hubby who is a total computer geek and can talk me through most issues as long as the cell phone bill is paid up (but that’s a whole other challenge…).
The biggest challenge so far has come from a girlfriend who called in need to vent. Her challenges are much more in depth and complicated and involve many people. Futures lie in the balance of her choices. My challenges are nowhere even near the same ballpark of this person’s (at least not in many, many years).
My challenge was to share stories, experiences and options without forcing my opinion – no judgments. After all, I’ve been there and done most of that. But you can’t tell people what to do. From my experience, demanding orders makes people do just the opposite. Number one Rebel without a cause, right here.
However, I hope I was helpful. I hope she felt a bit of camaraderie. She is not alone in her challenges. Good vibes, Good vibes my Friend!
