Perseverance. (1 min read)

It is in the 4am alarm that rouses you from your cozy warm bed in the darkness. It is in the quiet of the morning when you are staring at a blank computer screen. You walk away for a cup of something hot. You return. Still blank.

It is in your morning run, on this day in the rain. Where your idea comes from the woods on the trail because your mind was silent and you were listening.

It is in the way you show up, every day, writing down your goals for the week and ticking them all off your list, one by one. Undeterred by the fact that your readership numbers are up or down or nowhere.

It is in these very days that blur by with equal parts fear and joy; doubt and confidence. You remain relentless, driven and focused.

Do the work you came here to do.

It is in you.

(And how awesome is that?)

I choose perseverance. Every time. It’s in me.

Early on in my personal spiritual journey, I went through a phase of watching and reading stories of NDE’s or near death experiences. It was an integral part of shedding my ingrained catholic beliefs of heaven and hell and life ending at death. 

This led me to the work of Dr. Michael Newton (Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives), which quite literally blew my mind and made me eager to experience my own past life regression; which I later did with the fabulous Nancy Hajek right here in Nashville.

In the forward to Frank Ostaskeski’s beautiful book, The Five Invitations* is this quote by Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.: 

“For many people, authentic life starts at the time of death — not our own, but someone else’s.”

Chances are until you have experienced that one great loss, this will read to you as more ominous than catalytic. Like grief itself, these types of statements can’t fully be absorbed and understood until you experience them yourself.
