Redefining Perseverance

Normally, I would define perseverance from the dictionary:

a  steady persistence in adhering to a course of action, a belief, or a purpose;
or steadfast singleness of purpose, as in the pursuit of a goal,
despite difficulties or obstacles

My son nudges a porcupine toward the camera on a family bike ride

This week,  perseverance may be better defined from experience:

Continuing to go on, even if no one is nudging you forward.

    Good quote! Love the picture. No one messes with that little guy and he keeps on going. Good parallel to life.
