G is for Growing pains and Glitches
Well, I sure needed those quotes this morning! (see below and also Inspiration Point for March 18 ) After a week of technical problems with the site, our glitches have yet to be resolved. On top of that, I ran into a website this morning with SO MANY of the features I want for this site — technorati feed, de.licio.us tags preset for each story, multiple tags for each story that lead to related topics, headline links for mobile phones to bookmark… I feel that all this angst is forcing me to be smarter, to rise to the occasion… to be compassionate with myself. . . So I’m learning something, which is good. Try to see the good in your pain.
"Smart, useful pain comes to you because you are taking risks, and acting out of love and adventure. It is trying to make you smarter. In Kabbalah, in tarot, the devil card is the archetype of the Riddler, who presents us with insolvable problems so we can get smarter by rising to the occasion. Pain is demanding that we get more loving and expansive."
– Simone Weil
