teapots two

Has this ever happened to you? You bite off more than you can chew? Or you get into something and then think you’ll never figure it out?
   I decided to buy  a program called Lightroom and take a course learning how to use it. After a few weeks I was totally lost. I think I’m fairly good at computers but I reached a point where I was totally ready to give it up completely. I was so frustrated and discouraged that I couldn’t learn to do what I was supposed to. It was so muddled in my mind and each time I would go over the lesson I became more and more confused.
   I am not a quitter and didn’t want that course to get the best of me, but I was finding myself just not wanting to even go there anymore.
  But today I decided to give it one more try and guess what? Things started clearing up. I discovered what I was doing wrong and it started to make more sense to me. Now I feel I can continue. 
   This frustration about learning was something new for me. I was the one that hardly had to study in high school because things came easy. I worked hard, but I always felt that I was blessed to be able to do things without a great deal of effort or struggle. This frustration with Lightroom made me want to bang my head against the wall. Now I understand what some of my students used to go through trying to learn math in my classroom. We all have different challenges when it comes to learning. When I taught I was able to patiently explain and demonstrate things over and over until a student had the light bulb go off over their head.  And that is what happened to me today.  The light bulb went off.
  Hopefully now I will be able to continue. I did the above picture using Lightroom.


  1. Better you than me, dear friend! But I will envy the results you get from all this effort.
