Loving Yourself Enough to Persevere & Shine Your Light
When I think of perseverance, I think of having the drive to keep going against all odds. Whatever goals you have set for yourself, you constantly work towards them until they're accomplished because you truly believe in yourself and your abilities. When you have faith in who you are, you can understand that your obstacles are only hurdles, and you're willing to jump over these hurdles because you know that you will come out on top.
You love yourself enough to know that what you have to offer this world is so great and nothing or no one can get in your way. Perseverance, to me, means stopping at no cost to give this world a piece of you that it deserves. Understand that what's meant for you, is yours already. Giving up is not an option. Don't ever speak less, do less, or dim your shining light because life gets discouraging. Challenge yourself to your fullest potential and live out your divine purpose. You owe that to yourself, and to yourself only.
On so many occasions we are overlooked, not taken seriously, thus causing some of us women to work twice as hard in order to prove our worthiness. Many times we are only seen as valuable when it comes to domestic work or when sexualized and objectified. If we just limit ourselves to these expectations placed on us, we settle; and settling quite frankly, is for the weak.
