Would you describe yourself as a "never giver upper"?
You should if you keep trying no matter what.
Perhaps as a child, stuff was not always easy-breezy for you... some school work proved tough, and got a little tougher as you got older. It was better to be moving and doing something than sitting and reading text books. You might have loved to play basketball, and in all sports your best skill was not giving up, practicing endlessly and still having a blast riding the bench in your early years. You kind of needed to put a lot of effort into everything.
Over the years you discover this stick-to-itiveness can amount to more than a hill of beans. You find a way to do whatever it is you need or want to do in the easiest manner possible. Routine, discipline and endurance get you to your goals.
As you age, you discover life sometimes throws unexpected curves at each of us, and you still never give up.
I used to be a lot better at grinning and bearing it than I have been lately.... there is no excuse for that, nor will there ever be. I was still not giving up, but I was taking a road less high than I should have, with my chin hanging low at times. Last night I vowed to be ultra attentive to this and not sink, no matter what circumstances.
Tonight my hubby and I ventured out for some chinese din-din, and we all know what fun the fortune cookies can be. These are what we got. The fortune cookie gods were looking are way.
These cookies said a mouthful before they became a mouthful.
