Endurance

There’s moments when your legs feel like lead; your lungs tight; your feet wobbly.  
There’s moments when you reach your max; you must slow down; you must stop. 
There’s moments when you know that despite a little pain; despite a little discomfort, you can keep pushing forward.
Endurance is a beautiful thing.  
We all have it.  Sometimes we just have to look a little harder to find it.  Sometimes it comes easy.
Come what may, all bad fortune is to be conquered by endurance. – Virgil
Does anybody really think that they didn’t get what they had because they didn’t have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment? – Nelson Mandela
Endurance is nobler than strength, and patience than beauty. – John Ruskin
Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory. – William Barclay
Endurance is patience concentrated. – Thomas Carlyle
Endurance is the crowning quality, And patience all the passion of great hearts. – James Russell Lowell
Every calamity is to be overcome by endurance. – Virgil

Sometimes we have to remember to use it in life.  Sometimes you need to remind me of this.

**After reading my good friend’s blog the other evening, she decided that for the month of November, she’s posting something she’s grateful for; something as simple as a picture or quote or possibly something lengthy.  In the month that we come together and share what we’re grateful and thankful for, there seems to be no better way.  And it’s with that that I have decided to join her.  Will you join us? #gratefulseason
