In all you do that you value, in learning what you want to learn, you demonstrate perseverance. Very little can be accomplished unless you persevere. To learn what you must learn to replace illusion with Truth, requires great perseverance.
Remember within every situation, you are either defensively reacting to it or patiently learning from it!
The essential learning is through your inner intention.
Every moment that is truly given to gratitude, kindness, honesty, and humility will become the blessings that you count on through every situation.
Do not worry about what to say or do, because the Grace of God will guide you in every moment.
