Perseverance-steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success-Source: Oxford Dictionary
Hello blog land!
At the rate I am posting it seems like I am posting once a month. Haha! That’s not intentional but its more due to the ebb and flow of life.
This month’s topic is on perseverance. If you remember, I blogged about the events that occurred on my 25th birthday and how the events of my life allowed me to persevere onto the new events happening in my life. I overcame that area in my life. This year, I have taken on new ventures that I’ll believe I have persevere though.
There are so many things I’ll like to achieve. I am big on goal setting for myself. In fact, I ran into this problem before I graduated from nursing school. I didn’t know where my life would be like after nursing school. It took up so much of my time that I felt like I had to replace it with something. That something turned into someone. That someone turned into a relationship I really didn’t have any business being in. However, I can’t say I regretted it. After all, I learned from it my self-worth and took those bricks my ex tried to hurl at me and build a better, stronger, foundation for myself.
Romans 8:28 in the bible, paraphrased, talks about ALL things working together for the good for those who love God. I believe that everything that intended to hurt me worked out for my greater good. I saythat to conclude that I know I’ll have some preserving to do in order to achieve the next goals for my life. I look forward to using those bricks that were thrown at me to take me out to work and build a foundation that won’t sink in sand.
I would love to hear from you all! What things did you persevere over? What bricks are you looking forward to use to build a better foundation?
- 1. Seeing and spending time with loved ones on my birthday.
- 2. Doing the things I love on my birthday.
- 3. Taking the time to reflect on a year and looking forward to what lies ahead of me.
