Perseverance


If you really want something, and really work hard, and take advantage of opportunities, and never give up, you will find a way.. Follow your Dreams.

~ Jane Goodall
Sometimes we all just need a gentle reminder to stay the course, push on and never give up. When the road ahead seems to high to climb, look back and see how far you have come....and then carry on....
It's easy to give up, but don't. Keep going....
move on and stay strong!

Press on! A better fate awaits thee.
Victor Hugo

According to the Chinese Zodiac, this is the year of the Rabbit.
We can expect a calm after the storm...
Good taste and refinement will shine on everything....
hmm? I like the way that sounds.

Have a great day!

"Perseverance" is such a great strong word.
I have a photo of the word that I found on a bench, carved in stone.
Skiing, carving our craft does take skill and lots of patience to persevere.
