I never understood what perseverance really was until I started working for myself. It is without a doubt driven by passion and purpose, usually toward the desrived outcome. Or somewhere close. Whether the goal is money (for those working for themselves), career growth, the need to create and express – it doesn’t matter. We get up and persevere. Could it be loyalty to our own art and heart? Responsibility? Is perseverance forced or does feel like that strong shoulder we can lean on at times of need? I think the latter. Feel the fear, weakness, boredom, frustration and do it anyway. I’m far from scared, bored of frustrated by the way. I tried to take a week off work while in Gran Canaria 2 weeks ago but couldn’t. I kept on working. Came back to some huge changes (more on that soon) and I’m exhausted with one eye shut as I write this, but I persevere. Yes it’s dedication, but at the same time, why stop creativity and inspiration when they want to flow through you?
