Our own perseverance is a quality we often both discount and take for granted. In so many tasks we persevere seemingly effortlessly, because we perceive that we have no other choice. For instance, no matter how much we worry or complain, bringing a child into this world will always take approximately nine months. We know this going in, so we are willing to persevere through the uncertainty, the discomfort, the fear of the unknown. We take it day-by-day, without even realizing that this is what we are doing, as we patiently wait for the brilliant results we know are coming.
But when it comes to working toward our own recovery, health, and wellbeing, we give up so easily! We don’t know that we have that same ability to work at it day-by-day, to persevere, and to patiently wait for equally brilliant results.
Today’s affirmation: Today I will remember to keep my eye on the prize, be patient, and persevere.
