Courage and Perseverance



Good things come to those who believe. 
Better things come to those who are patient.
But, the best things come to those who persevere.

“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is that quiet voice at the end of the day that says…I will try again tomorrow.” – Mary Anne Radmacher

“I will try again tomorrow,” are words that I have lived by most of my life. I have found that I have the tenacity to keep showing up to my challenges until I complete the task at hand. In doing so, I have been met with one accomplishment after another; but, it takes perseverance. I steadily accepted and assumed the necessary action toward my dreams, which built the momentum that led to success.

We have to believe in ourselves, have patience, and consistently meet our challenges. We need to be true to our ideas and our purpose. Consider the sun, which continues to serve its purpose, to shine. The sun does not worry if it will be too hot or not to burn through the clouds; it simply continues to be true to itself and radiates its energy into our atmosphere.

Dan Zadra says that worry is a misuse of imagination. I feel that worry is in fact a perverse use of our imagination and creative energy. Creativity can be a very liberating experience when utilized in a positive way. Imagination can fuel our dreams and inspire us. Natalie Rogers stated, “Creativity is like freedom: once you taste it, you cannot live without it. It is a transformative force, enhancing self-esteem and self-empowerment.”

Courage is about arriving each day and facing our responsibilities, embracing life and seizing the moments. It is also about giving ourselves permission to be who we are and delight in it! Each of us are a valuable and intricate part of the Universal tapestry, where every one fiber adds strength, beauty and purpose. So, it is important for each of us to believe, be patient and to always try again! Don’t give up!
