Three Gifts of Persistence

That which we persist in doing becomes easier -
not that the nature of the thing has changed,
but that our ability to do has increased.


- Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • I've never actually seen the movie Finding Nemo - but I find encouragement in Dory's advice: "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming."

  • In July 2012 I ran a 5K for the first time. Since then I've run four more, most recently yesterday. My training has ebbed and flowed over the past three years, but I keep reminding myself that persistence is the key - so I keep going.

  • All my life I've taken a perverse sense of pleasure in doing what other people say I can't do. (Yes, I'm one of those people!)
