Paula Findlay’s When the Going Get’s Rough

Her father is battling cancer.

We all know what kind of year its been for Paula Findlay, recently on her blog though, she revealed yet another challenge that she and her family will face.

“I’ve spent a lot of time over the past few months wallowing in self-pity, which is a completely useless and selfish emotion. It doesn’t make anything better, it doesn’t solve problems, and it doesn’t change the past. Stepping up and making changes is ultimately what makes things better. And having a little perspective, that helps too. Sure, the past year has been rough, but my definition of rough is having a sports-related injury and having low iron and not winning an Olympic medal. In the real world, that’s not rough.”
