I've been struggling lately. An injury set me back for some of the week, I've been feeling a little weary and it's been raining and/or cold lately. You know what I think? Here I go again! It seems I get going okay and then I drift back. This time I'm going to push through this and persevere. I looked it up in the dictionary.
per·se·vere [pur-suh-veer] verb, per·se·vered, per·se·ver·ing.
verb (used without object)1.to persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly.
Wow! That says it exactly how it is. There will be obstacles, discouragement, or difficulty along the way. It's just a matter of persisting or continuing. Getting back up and keep going. Persevering.
