On Tenacity

When I saw this picture, I thought of one thing: tenacity.

Tenacity is that "doggonnedness". It's the heart to get things done by any means necessary, even when it gets hard.

It is something that I wish I had more of. I look at myself and my accomplishments, and I have accomplished many things which take much tenacity, but in my heart of hearts, there's so much more I want to do. I spend so much time thinking of my dreams and purposes. I want to harness the tenacity it took to obtain my beloved degrees and put it all towards my imagination and all that I dream to do. All the obstacles in the way be damn. As the caption to the picture says.. "Don't let anything hold you back."

It's interesting that the older I get, the more I think of such things. 

And I think that's a move in the right direction.


  1. pardon my French, you tryin' to keep this site PG-13 but,



    1. Yes sir. And that tire thing above looks like something you would do, because you got to be somewhere. Damn a car boot. LOL

  2. LOL at the picture.

    I look forward to the day when I will be sitting in my office at my non-profit smiling that I had the courage to continue pushing.

    The past year and the various careers within the year (3) taught me to never get complacent and push to achieve your goals and dreams despite people opinions.

  3. I have been having thoughts lately to pursue my masters maybe even PhD in chemistry. In the past when these thoughts creep up, I have always used "the single mother/income" as an excuse. I don't know if it's my recent birthday or just finally realizing that I too have dreams.
    Thanks for this post!!


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
