Words to Digest: Perseverance
The first word in this series was chosen because it is one of my favorite words.
The continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition: the action or condition or an instance of persevering: steadfastness.
When I started this journey I knew that PERSEVERANCE had to be the method that got me to my goal. My perseverance was fueled by a nutritionist at Vanderbilt telling me I couldn’t achieve my goal, which was reversing Diabetes. Her off-hand dismissal of my chosen path to do that not only made me mad at her attitude but also launched my personality’s penchant for finishing what I started no matter how hard, how long, or how disappointing the path would be.
