The unique characteristic trait of the human spirit, perseverance. We constantly have the ability to change and evolve to continue life. Defined, perseverance is a continuance in a state of grace leading finally to a state of glory (Google, 2013). There are so many quotes and saying that have the essence of perseverance: "never give up, never surrender", "hold fast", and many more. We as humans, time after time, are living testaments to the power of perseverance. When we consider from where we started and how far we have come, within any spectrum, is fascinating and embodies wonderment. From millennial pasts to even just yesterday; it reminds me of a quote Joyce Meyers has stated "I may not be where I need to be but I thank God I am not where I used to be." Joyce Meyer, Woman To Woman: Candid Conversations From Me To You (Goodreads, 2013). Perseverance is the understanding and practice in which we learn from our past to continue through and grow toward our tomorrows. Until next time or the next... dream ~ K.E.Nowinsky
