Persevere & Good Deeds

Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow may be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine. Jack Ma

English dictionary defined perseverance as continuing in a course of action without regard to discouragement, opposition or previous failure. It is persistently enduring to the end.

First lesson to pick today is that we have to persistently sow good seeds of kindness, love and care to others. Good acts attract good reactions, it is a natural law. Good deeds trigger good reactions. Is it not said, what goes around comes around?

It’s a sunny morning, have a beautiful day! 😊💚💙❤

Determination

Never underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new direction – Germany Kent.

Every mountain becomes a plain when you are determined. Determination is a tonic that keeps achievers/champions going; it’s a key element in enduring temporary setbacks and the achievement of ultimate success. No matter how life and indeed the year has been, be determined to make a difference. Life is like a marathon race, you must push yourself to the finishing line by fighting self-pity, depression, fear of the future and anxiety daily.

Good morning everyone. See you later.

November 1/11/19

November, 2019 is finally here and the year is almost done! There might be setbacks on our way but note that it’s not over yet.

Jackson Brown penned, “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength but by perseverance.” Remember that the greatest Oak was once a little nut.

Remain focused on your dreams and have a blessed month.

Persevere

The fisher who draws in his net too soon
Won’t have any fish to sell
The child who shuts up his book too soon
Won’t learn any lessons well
If you would have your learning stay
Be patient – don’t learn too fast
The man who travels a mile each day
May get round the world at last

***

Take a look at the rhymes from McGuffey’s Reader, what lessons do you draw from this? Be patient, endure and persevere. Good things come to those who wait.

Waiting for the Sun

It may seem the days are dark and blurry

For the lively sun sleeps

Time goes by drawing sheets of boring moments

Faces portray gloom, the firmaments make it even worse

Even the little rabbits, birds and butterflies that glide

About the wonderful landscape hid from the valleys

Sweet flowery scents are stifled in the cold winds

And maybe the environment is very sick

By the hillside, a group of travelers make camp

Their caravans including patches of white in the scenario

Different colors of triangles, of cotton materials pin

To the ground, but the pretty colors will not shine forth

Deep inside the village, the farmers file their gadgets

In their minds and perhaps among their crops in the field

It was a cold day, one without any joy, a lost one

So, within and without, all stay to wait for the sun
