#HAWMC - Keep Calm
I spent one of my "get out of blogging free" cards last night. I think I spent it wisely and fairly. So on to today's challenge! During WWII, the UK Ministry of Information created a series of posters to boost morale during the Blitz by passing on a message from King George VI. Keep Calm and Carry On was the third in a series of World War 2 posters drawn up. The original posters were white block text on a red background. The only image on the poster was the royal crown of George VI. Today's #HAWMC challenge is to make a Keep Calm poster.
When a moment overwhelms us, it's easy to feel small an inadequate. When simple tasks become complicated and burdensome, it's easy to feel incompetent and useless. All the little things gang up together... big things join the group on their own... Soon there's a whole mob of problems surrounding us and it's smack-down time. Then there are those days where there are no choices, it's do what our body demands (which usually means being stuck in the bed or bathroom all day). Oh, those days can be brutal. What do we do when everything, including our own bodies, are conspiring against us?
