Perseverance –the 48th Good Word in the “good Words Project”

Updated on June 24, 2020

The Good Word Perseverance

Perseverance—the 48th Good Word in this series of Good Words, a project created by Jo "grace" Goldsmith gave us to encourage us to “Persevere” never give up our desire to be the best most creative writers we can be, and to inspire us to live up to our God given potential as human beings, to be what we were put here to be.

I have seen Jo "Grace" persevere through so many setbacks these 3 short years that she has been and is still an inspiration as she stayed positive and upbeat, although sometimes through her tears, but always manages to persevere.

A special thanks to you Jo for inspiring us to keep on writing.

The Persistent ant

The Persistent ant, was sculpted, for my husband for his perseverance through all these years. I never see him give up on whatever he decides to do. Hubby is a retired carpenter--thus the carpenter ant.

Sculpture by a man named Will Hatch and it is called a Whim-ZEE.

What is Perseverance?

Perseverance: Persistence, Determination, Grit, Insistence, Resolution, and Diligence

To me perseverance is the determination to reach my goal no matter what the opposition.

Perseverance is to never ever give-up

No matter what you do

Just be persistent

And you will see your projects through

Let no one hold you back, or tell you

That what you are trying

Is something you can’t do

Dig in your heels and show them

You will see your projects through

Even when things seem to be

Down in the dumps for me

Perseverance is the key

And my projects I will see them through

You will see

Even when you are feeling low

Never let it show

Let your perseverance start anew

And you will see your project through

High Hopes

Once there was a silly old ant

Who thought he could move a rubber tree plant

Everyone knows an ant can't

Move a rubber tree plant, but he had high hopes

— by J. Van Heusen, S. Cahn

Do you have Perseverance?
