It's Week 3 at
and although late I thought I'd join in
having been inspired by my sister-in-law,
(Pop over and see what she's done
this week by clicking HERE).
However, I did find this week's prompts tricky.
There are 3 prompts from which one or more can be used;
Headline Prompt; Triumphs and Defeats: What do you see as your greatest triumphs and defeats? What have they taught you? Which have you learned more from?
Color Prompt: Black and White
Quote Prompt: Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
|(The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow)|
I decided to choose the Black and White
and Triumphs and Defeats prompts.
The stylized sunburst stamp is hand carved.
I have had a few challenging situations to
deal with in my lifetime (like most people)
but as difficult as those periods of time might
have been, I always held on to the belief that
things would get better.
Just like the song 'Tomorrow' in the film Annie.
I think we learn so much about ourselves when
dealing with both triumph (when earned) and
defeat and I agree with the line,
"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

I enjoyed taking part in this challenge and it's helped to kickstart my recent dearth of creativity,
but I'm not overly happy with this piece
so I'm now working on another one......
Thanks for dropping by!
