Achieving something difficult…

At the moment of writing, the Just Giving page at school has raised Β£3,251 of the Β£4,000 that we hoped to achieve. Last Friday, just one person donated Β£1,000 – which is amazing!!!

Getting to the Β£4,000 mark is not easy, and we are all working hard to achieve it because it is really important to try to succeed when you have set yourself something difficult to do. This weekend, I tried to change an area of garden into a paved area at my house and it was VERY DIFFICULT INDEED :-(. My problem was that the paving stones I was using were massive and very heavy – so moving them was extremely hard, but then getting them into position was very hard as well. By the end of four hours work I had got myself sweaty, tired and covered in dirt but only managed three paving stones (three more to do.) When have you been faced with something difficult and how did you manage to beat it? Let us know and we can encourage others to keep going and not to give up…

  6. Dear mr Brian ,
    It has been difficult these past few weeks because we have been dealing with the tragedy what happened to an amazing girl who is one of my best friends. I couldn’t go to school every day crying so I just had to say to myself she’s in a better place , she will be having fun and she will always be my heart . Luckily , all my friends supported me and made it a lot easier . I have learned how to deal with the news .

  14. I found Sugar Free February a big struggle and I was very very glad after it was over

  15. One of the hardest things I’ve ever had to get the best of is stage fright. And, I still haven’t beat it and I still have a mental breakdown whenever I have to speak or perform in front of people. But I know it’s gotten much better because I used to struggle talking to people who weren’t my best friends and I’ve noticed that whenever I sing in front of people, that mental breakdown is a little less bad than the last. Last year I sang at a wedding and I nearly decided not to last minute because I nearly had a heart attack I was so scared. But I did it. And it felt great (everyone recorded it on their phones and put it on Facebook. Ahhhh- technology).

    That must be the longest blog ever. ANOTHER ACHIEVEMENT!

  20. I achieved walking my St Bernard puppy by myself. She has grown into the size of a Shetland pony. My favourite thing is watching her run free.

  21. My lego friends ski set because it was difficult at first but then I took my time and asked for help and in the end I finished it and it turned out great.

  22. My blog is about ice-skating because when I started I just couldn’t keep my balance and I just fell. It took me about a year so I could ice skate pretty well but even a pro slips a couple of times…

  23. I did a comprehension yesterday – it was really hard but that wouldn’t stop me…

  24. When I was first learning to ride my bike I kept falling into the bushes. The bad thing was I had to ride it but the bushes were spiky. Now I can ride my bike perfectly.

  25. My achievement is learning how to do a front-flip and land it – I’ve achieved it πŸ™‚

    What I am trying to achieve is my ariel – Grace TM is teaching me. The first step is to do a cartwheel, which I can do, but I need to trust myself to take my hands off the floor. Reese Newton is nearly there but I am not. I am sure I can do it.

    At school, I read the question properly, understand and believe – all equals pride in my work and happiness πŸ™‚

  34. I had to come over my fear of doing a back handspring because a few years ago I tried on my mums bed and hurt my back. Now I can do it on my own and do a round off into it. I also had to get over my fear of jumping off of the high diving board at the Metrodome. Although those things were difficult, the hardest was getting over one of my best friends passing away a few weeks ago.
