“Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier.” – Charles F. Kettering
“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another.” – Walter Elliott
In a day and age where we choose to rush around getting so many things done every day, it’s good to stop and remember that perseverance means that you keep on going, despite hardship, despite distractions and obstacles, we keep moving forward one step at a time.
Some days, like today, it is a great help to remember that all it takes is that one step right after the other.

Take a moment today to be thankful for the blessing in your life. Be thankful for your job, your family and friends, the roof over your head, the ability to read, and learn. There are so many things we take for granted each day. Look around you today and be thankful.
I am thankful for you. No one can ever take your place, you are unique, one of a kind. Only you have the ability to do the things you do the way you do them. Only you know all the people in your life that you can touch with a simple act of kindness. You can make a difference.

Though the path seems dark,
be sure that the sun will shine again.
When things seem to be falling apart,
realize that they are just falling into place.
We don’t always get what we want,
Yet we usually have what we need.
Take a moment to be thankful for yet another day, another opportunity, another breath, for each one is a gift. Take nothing for granted, for nothing is promised, be grateful and show appreciation when you can and above all this, know that you matter and are loved.
