If I could name one character trait that I am desperate to acquire it has to be perseverance. I value it in others and wish to cultivate it in my own life. Perseverance in spite of all odds is what brings victory.
I have persevered so far in one thing, failing to persevere!!! Hence I am here. So many times I have started and quit, lost the battle before I even started it, let myself be defeated without even a smidgin of an effort.
I have a lot of weight to lose, a lot of stuff on my bucket list, and a lot of self-esteem to reclaim. Perseverance is my Achiles' heel. I love that SP is the place to once and for all pick myself up, dust off, and PERSEVERE. This time around, with faith in God, the help of friends and resources in SP and elsewhere, I claim 2012 as my opportunity to finally do something consistently for ONE YEAR! I am ready to put up a fight!
2012 is the year when for 365 days I will persevere in staying close to God, just staying around, losing a bunch of weight, regaing my self-esteem, loving my family and friends, and LIVING!
