At times, things just suck. It happens, especially getting into new territory or learning something new. It can be frustrating, so just let it be frustrating, embrace the suck. Eventually, it will settle in and you will have acquired a new skill. So work on a new skill, embrace that it may be hard, laugh, and keep working at it.
The Quote I am thinking of today:
“Everything is hard before it is easy”-Goethe
The work: 100-200 crunches
