PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, November 1st, 2011by Daphne Rose Kingma in THE TEN THINGS TO DO WHEN YOUR LIFE FALLS APART

“Persistence is guts. Stick-to-itiveness. Determination. The willingness to repeat and repeat and repeat until you’ve achieved the desired effect. Persistence says: Don’t give up!

In this sense, persistence is visionary. Expectant. A sacred journey resplendent with hope. When you persist you know, on a visceral level, that you are enacting your part in the invisible contract between you and the cosmos. Instead of feeling powerless, you feel alive. Instead of feeling hopeless, you have a sense that you’re on the path to somewhere. Instead of feeling like a victim, you feel like a person of action; in your deep self you know that this choice for action will one day be rewarded with a response.”

Daphne Rose Kingma, in “The Ten Things to Do When Your Life Falls Apart”
