The Success of Perseverance
Without going into detail, let's just say the past few months for your humble blogger has been a lesson in perseverance. The New Lexicon Webster's Dictionary defines it thus: The quality of being persistent and persevering Persevering in turn, is defined in the dictionary as present participle of persevere, defined as "to try hard and continuously in spite of obstacles and difficulties". What stands out about this definition is the implication that the process of persevering isn't an easy one and the agency of the person performing the action. That there will be road blocks and detours in life is inevitable. As the aforementioned definition of persevere suggests, it's up to us to try hard and continuously despite this. The proverbial light at the end of the tunnel may not be in immediate sight, but there is a fruit to persevering. In fact, the dictionary describes that fruit best : "a state of glory" It is the wish of yours truly for anyone reading this that you may know the fruits of persevering, no matter what the situation may be.
