Persevere

Announcing my One Little Word for 2010- Persevere
Wow, was that easy to choose... with everything going on in my life right now... I need this word more than ever.
Persevere- to persist in anything undertaken, maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or disencouragement; continue steadfastly.
Synonyms- continue, hang on, endure, maintain, pursue, continue, keep on, hang tough
"When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on." Franklin D. Roosevelt
"Perseverence is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did." Newt Gingrich
"With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverence, all things are attainable. " Thomas Foxwell Buxton
I challenge you to join me in choosing a word that you will keep as your word for 2010. Last year, my word was gratitude. You can tell by reading my posts that I have been listing the numerous things that I am grateful for in life.
Read more about OLW here or her newest post here.
Leave me a comment with what word you choose.
