    Finding the self-motivation to focus on my priorities and to work on them through pain is the greatest challenge I face in this moment.

      Laura, I know very little about pain (physical pain) but I know there are many who live with chronic pain, and I admire them for going forward with their lives in spite of the pain.  I wish for you strength and stamina.

      Thanks, E.P. and debbiepinkston! Strength and stamina are indeed important--it's a mental game as much as anything, and some days I'm stronger than others. Today is a very good day for me, as I hope it is for both of you, also.

      Pick just a few priorities and be sure you can easily get them done in a day. Then, pick something fun to do. Then, if there is time left, do more work. One little bite at a time... The tortoise and the hare both finished the race, you will, too.

    Hmmmm....the greatest challenge I face at this moment is knowing how to relate to certain people.  I tend to assume that people are open, warm, honest and forthright in their dealings with me, and when I find it to be otherwise, I'm knocked off balance and don't know how to proceed from there.  Still learning.

      Emanate Presenceposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I like the way you expressed it. Though you did not ask for suggestions and it may not apply, I will say that by being more true to myself, relating to others has become more natural. It is an ongoing learning, isn't it.

    My greatest challenge is avoiding burnout.  I have so many things going on in my life.  I am passionate about them all and don't want to let anything go.  However, I don't want to get to the point where I no longer enjoy them.

    2. Laura Schneider profile image91
      Laura Schneiderposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      My $0.02 is that if you're truly "passionate" about them, then even if you set some things aside for awhile you'll still enjoy them when you pick them up again--they won't gather dust or mold while you work on other passions, in my experience anyway.

    The biggest challenge I am experiencing in the moment is finding out how to add the question button to my profile page!  I have been researching this for the past half hour and, though I have asked numerous questions in the past, I do not seem to be able to discover how to ask a question in the present moment.  This is so very frustrating!

    I want to ask a burning question about politics, i.e., what are other's thoughts on how to transform our dysfunctional Congress, considering both Parties appear dug in, like WW1 trench warfare or worse, willing to throw out the baby with polluted bath water.

    Regaining my health - I injured my back and can barely walk on my own now. I've received treatment and physical therapy and this has to continue for awhile. For all you freelance writers out there, please make sure you are using an ergonomic chair if you work for hours each day. I'm sure this was a major cause of my problem  (spinal stenosis which kept getting worse). The onset of pain was unbelievable - it felt like I was hit in the back with concrete. Argh!!!!

    The greatest challenge at the moment is dealing with my own impatience.

    Late in the Fall of 2012 I decided to apply for a guide dog, because I am legally blind, and very active I think it would be of great benefit.

    The application involves lots of people doing their part, doctors supplying information, background checks etc. All of these steps are for a good reason, to protect the dog.

    My problem is my own desire to have everything scheduled, all bases covered and wanting to know if I can move to the next step or have been rejected before I have completed this current step.

    So my own impatience is my greatest challenge at the moment.

    The thought of my 92 year old mother in a hospital bed suffering from a chest infection and consequent breathlessness. After a very long life dear old ma is facing her greatest challenge yet and she's fighting every inch of the way. We're right behind her as she lies there, eyes closed, mouth firmly shut, frail body shaking from time to time.
    Phyllis has been through and survived a house fire, a world war, a poverty stricken post war Britain - living and working in the same town!! Bringing up six kids in a loving, creative way!!!

    I don't usually mention family on HubPages but she deserves this moment of what? Glory? Yes you could call it that.

    It's always difficult to express deep seated emotion in writing - I guess the challenge is to celebrate our mother's achievements whilst bearing mind her present suffering.

    The challenge for me is, again and again, how to be centred in Spirit instead of Personality; in Self instead of Ego. All I want to do is "just be", yet I fall into the trap of "doing" because that's what the world of ego personalities demands. I look forward to the moment when all things that's not the Self fall away and when that moment becomes the new reality.

    Always making sure that I have some type of prospect lined up. With the way the economy and the job market, among other things, is going, it can be extremely hard to keep your hopes up and make sure there is a purpose for you to get out of bed. There's little else in my opinion that's worse than feeling helpless; having no control over situations that almost seem hopeless. Always have to find ways to continuously make sure I am keeping busy, motivated, working, and have something to look forward to down the road whether it's a new job, getting together with my friends, going out with a girl, or simply engaging in an activity that horns my mind and body. As long as I don't feel helpless and have something to look forward to, I am content, but it's getting more difficult in this day and age with the competitive job market and failing economy.

      I 'second the motion' on Moesky's comment. May not be as easy as the book title suggests, "Do what you love and the money will follow," or money may follow a looong way behind. Starting by asking yourself what you really love to do is sound advice.

    I am currently trying to find a job. It has become a huge challenge for my husband and I. We are a family of four... Two beautiful cats (Maya and Dali), my husband and I. We are a military family and it's my first big move. We moved to Washinngton state last May three weeks after our wedding. Even though I have a college degree, I have had a very hard time finding a stable job. I worked as a photographer for three months and the job ended. It's hard to live check to check and not being employed has affected my self esteem quite a bit. I am on the search for a job right now but it's no easy task. But I feel optimistic that that will change soon.

      Finding out what we want to do is secondary to knowing who we really are...and are not. Discover that first, and all the rest will follow easily!

    Having patience! 

    We have been trying to sell our previous home since last summer but haven't had any offers to date.  We moved to our new home in September and are carrying two mortgages right now which has been a bit of a fiscal burden for us.  Have no pity--we knew this was a risky deal when we took it on!  However, we were assured by many that our home would 'sell quickly' but it unfortunately hasn't.  We live in PA and the real estate market here is better than most places but still a little on the slow side. We are hoping spring brings an offer....praying for patience until the house is SOLD!!

    Being officially diagnosed with cancer, for the third time.  That, and having two young babies to worry about and take care of while I am fighting.

      It is hard to imagine. You will find the inner resources to meet your challenge, I know.

      I am so very sorry to hear this. Have faith. This, too, you will have the strength to survive--if only for the "two young babies" who depend on you.

    My mother cutting myself and my brother out of her life because she is mentally ill.  That's all I have to say about that, because there is nothing else to say.
