 ’Not all sunshine and rainbows…’

At Pownall, as in life, you will come across difficult moments, tricky situations, we face difficult times, tough moments, hard choices.

Often the easy route out of those times is to blame someone else or something else for the difficulty, for our ‘misfortune’; he did this to me, she did that, I didn’t have this, I needed to have that, if only…if only!

We need to take responsibility for the direction of our own lives and not blame others if it is not going the way we want it to. Of course, factors (often in the shape of people) can have an adverse effect on us, on the direction our lives take but in the same vein people, factors can also have a positive effect on our lives if we allow them to.

The point is that if we ensure that we take whatever life throws at us, we are resilient and are determined to stay positive, ’to keep moving forward’ then we will achieve our life goals, we will succeed in life; ’that’s how winning is done!’

Every day isn’t all sunshine and rainbows but if you work hard, are determined and resilient then when it is you can enjoy it!
