Perseverance


According to Dictionary.com  Perseverance is:
1. steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., esp. in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.
2. Theology . continuance in a state of grace to the end, leading to eternal salvation.
I guess in a nutshell this means moving forward no matter what! In our move towards reinvention, we will come upon situations that at least momentarily stop us in our tracks. The other day I wrote about inertia and how we literally become stuck and unable to move. There are times when the decisions we are confronted with are astoundingly difficult. No matter where we turn we don’t see a solution.
I have found that the best path to take is the one moving forward. Recently I had a conversation with a co-worker who like me has had some financial/career challenges in the past few years. She said to me that I appeared so calm and wanted to know my secret. “Well” I replied ” there is no secret”.  I came to realize that there many things in life that are out of my control and that I had to practice the faith I said that I had and just put one foot in front of the other.
You’ll be surprised how hard it is to stay where you are when you are constantly moving forward! Let’s get to steppin!

  1. I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
    You get your fill to eat, but always keep that hunger
    May you never take one single breath for granted
    God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
    I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
    Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
    Promise me that you’ll give fate a fighting chance

    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
    I hope you dance, I hope you dance

    I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
    Never settle for the path of least resistance
    Living might mean taking chances, but they’re worth taking
    Loving might be a mistake but it’s worth making
    Don’t let some hell bent heart leave you bitter
    When you come close to selling out, reconsider
    Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance

    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
    I hope you dance (time is a wheel in constant motion always)
    I hope you dance (rolling us along)
    I hope you dance (tell me who wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
    I hope you dance (where those years have gone)

    I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean.
    Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens.
    Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance.
    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

    I hope you dance (time is wheel in constant motion always)
    I hope you dance (rolling us along)
    I hope you dance (tell me who wants to look back on their youthand wonder)
    I hope you dance (where those years have gone)
    repeat 1x
    I hope you dance
