Got perseverance?

Our family moved to the Appalachian mountains when our younger daughter was less than a year old. So she spent her preschool years hiking up and down mountains with us. I would carry her when she was small. I decided that it was time for her to hike when she was around two years old. So she did for a while...

...until she would get tired. "Help me, Daddy," she'd say with her arms outstretched. At first, I always picked her up and carried her for a while. I started telling her as she got older, "Just keep walking for a little while longer, and you'll feel better in a few minutes." So she would and in a few minutes she'd say, "I feel better, Daddy."

Our daughter wanted to quit. She persevered long enough, with a little encouragement, to get her second wind.

You might be tired of trying to keep your New Year's resolution. You may want to quit. You could even be worn out with it.

Why did you choose this resolution? What is it about you want to do that helps you make a life worth living? Get back in touch with your "why? Then persevere, get YOUR second wind in this New Year as you Live Positive!
