There are days (or even weeks) that can come into one's life that really try to knock you off your "path" sometimes. Not to complain, but I seem to be going through one physical ailment after another these past 2 months. Some of it I readily admit that I am to blame for it. But some of these others, they seem to appear from out of nowhere.

Getting older is not always fun, but the alternative is still less attractive, so I'm grateful for the former.

This series of events kind of steered me in a way to this topic of making the most of the time and resources I've got - while I have it - to maximize my potential and influence in life.

So, without further ado, I present to you my latest wallpaper entitled, "Maximize", making it the fifteenth "wall" for the gallery, and the 174th overall to my site.

As I was beginning to explain, the series of new "challenges" (which is a fancy word for ailments) that seem to keep coming after me made me stop and realize that this is life. Everybody has to deal or put up with something challenging. Life does bring change, some negative and some positive. Sometimes I can spin the circumstance in my brain into a positive, but lately, this ability has eluded me from being able to do so.

Then, when I saw this quote by Clarke, it helped me put things into perspective again. This is all a part of life. Get past the pain, refocus, and live life to the fullest again. It's not easy. It's not even that much fun. But, again, it forces me to focus better to stay on the path to a better life. It is a discipline that brings one closer to fulfillment. It takes more effort, but it leads to more growth.

I hope these thoughts and this wallpaper can encourage you today as this has encouraged me while creating it. We only get stronger by being challenged. The process can be painful, but the result is rewarding.
