Figuring it out

I was sent a meme

I, in turn, forwarded it to a friend with other stresses (same, same but different). She replied she was not quite figuring it out. But this is the beauty of life. You are either figuring it out (active verb) or have figured it out (completed action). There is no in between. You haven't failed if you are figuring it out. You just haven't found the solution. You haven't figured it out just yet.

It's daunting and at times distressing and feeling insurmountable, but just remember, you're still figuring it out.

And probably doing a beautiful job doing it.

  3. A great sentiment. Because you can guarantee that when you finally think you have figured it all out, along can come a gigantic spanner thrown into the works and you have to start again. #KCACOLS

  4. I'm usually figuring it out... but isn't it a beautiful feeling when you finally do figure it out!

  6. I'm permanently figuring it out but jeez, I do get some heavy sh*t to deal with and the fact that I'm still here and breathing is enough to show the job is being done. Great sentiment.

  7. It's a journey seems contrite at times, but it is no less accurate for it. #kcacols

  10. So true - I've been doing a LOT of figuring out over the last few months - part way there and still with a little bit more to go before I can rest on my laurels.
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I've shared on my SM :)

    1. I do try not to use them in writing but I didn't creat the meme so there was no way round it....

  15. Does one ever figure it out? I figure if you've worked out that something needs figuring out and are doing it, it's better than not. At least you're on the path, and with every step comes some sort of learning and enlightenment. #openslather

  16. A great way of thinking! Love this. Things can sometimes take a lot longer to figure out than expected can't they. Thanks for sharing this quote with the #dreamteam

  17. The good thing is we don't always have to know the answers. We always get our answers when we truly need them. #KCACOLS
