  5. A recent challenge in my life was when I needed to save money to buy mom a proper house. No one helped me in it, only mom spiritually encouraged me. I worked hard myself to earn the money.

  6. My recent challenge was feeling that I made the wrong choice. My mom helped me see through the positive outcomes that occurred due to that choice.

  7. Oh, Kristin, where do I start? Earlier this year I had to have a major operation that has left me in a wheelchair (temporarily), a month later Dad died (unexpectedly) in his sleep, 2 weeks after the funeral Mum was diagnosed with colon cancer, then Tommy the cat died and Mum had her op. and went through a really bad patch. If we hadn't pulled together as a family (Mum, my sister & her daughter) and had the support of some old family friends, we'd have given up by now. But now things are on the up: Mum is gaining strength every day & we have a rescue kitten who brings laughter to our lives every day.

    The challenges in my life have been bittersweet. I was laid off recently but I'm set for some interviews in the following week. For a long time I became complacent, not anymore. Even when cost of living is more cost than actual living, with my positive demeanor I feel like I can take on the world.

  16. I overcame depression & I know it's never going to just go away - but I've come to know that it takes myself to be happy and I'm the only one who can do it. I've become content and at peace with myself thanks to the support from my best friends and family. -ebenz1006@gmail.com

  28. I've been challenged so many times that I don't know how to pick one! I need to lose weight, I want to be around for my kids and grandkids someday (my grandma died at 49, my aunt at 51) , as the oldest of my cousins, I've stepped up to help guide them in their lives after their mom died (their dad died 10 years earlier). I've encouraged my cousin to go to college & get a good lifetime job, I've encouraged my other cousin to buy a home, & found a good school for her to enroll her children is, I've encouraged their other sibling to get off of drugs.

    I myself was challenged almost a year ago to quit smoking, and be healthyer.
    My 4 kids are a daily challenge, along with our 4 pets!

    I've been challenged to help my mom find strength, her sister died, her motherinlaw lost her mind, her husband went to jail & now a 2nd divorce, & her job cut her hours.

    I'm challenged every day to set an example for someone, in addition to the challenges I give myself-such as being healthy, losing weight, and finding more time for making memories.

  31. Moving to another country was definitely a huge challenge for me. I had to, because my mom was getting married to a man she loves here, even though i do not approve it ( both the marriage and moving out). 18 years i lived without a father, almost always i was alone at my house, enjoying my hobbies and from time to time going for a walk with my 2 best-friends. Now i have to live in a huge family, in another country thousands kilometers away from my hometown, forced to get accustomed to their language, traditions and way of doing things. It's hard, so very hard, especially when both of my best-friends are attending universities in different countries. I'm afraid to lose them.I know that eventually i'll have to let them go. But also I'm afraid to lose myself here. Still I believe that I have the power to stay true to myself, not to "play" under their rules but to find happieness.
    Books and films are a huge inspiration, really. Because in every each of then you can find people who had to overcome what you are dealing with and it is truly wonderful. It is like having a huge circle of friends who are always in your heart , guiding and healping you out :)

  35. I've been enrolled to a degree program which is not my passion, I've been struggling with this challenge ever since I'm in first year. My friends help me cope up & my family is my source of motivation. Things won't come easy but I believe, it would be worth it.

  42. My schizophrenic/alcoholic brother had a stroke, heart attack, seizures and broke a hip within a 2 week period @ the age of 59. I am his only family member left so I make all decisions regarding his medical care, his chaotic finances and am trying to repair the house of mine that he lived in. During all this I found out I have severe osteoporosis and I'm 60. How have I overcome it? I've survived breast cancer on 3 different occurrences and well as a very difficult life. Faith and a loving husband and sons helped me survive Rosanne.

  45. I've given up sugar. I was a candy junkie and it showed. I quit cold turkey and am feeling great. My family is supportive in being okay with not so much junk and baked goods around the house.

  46. My recent challenge is dealing with my father who has been going down hill in his health rapidly. To help dealing with it, I am trying to remember the person he used to be and trying to not take things personally, a little bit of mindfulness goes a long way.

  53. I was rappelling down a 40 foot wall as practice for my upcoming 400 foot (30 stories) rappel for charity. I had a mishap as I was coming down for a landing and I got a concussion. I was totally freaked out about falling and smacking my head on the ground. The staff asked if I wanted to do it again to get the jitters out of my system before I did the 400 foot rappel Oct. 3rd. I 'm so glad I got back up on that wall and did it because if I hadn't I don't know if I could do the 30 story rappel this coming Saturday!
