21 Day Challenge ( Persist)

21st day
This day was about being persistent. To me there is no other creature as persistent as a bird. Have you ever seen a barn swallow have its nest knocked down, and they rebuild it immediately in the same place! Or have you ever watched a bird gather materials for their nest? They are not extremely strong, but it is by their persistence that they finish their nest.
I like this quote because so often I am not strong, but I am persistent. I will whittle away at something until I reach my goal. Be it a pound at a time or getting a room in order. I want to encourage anyone out there who may feel like giving up. Don't, just keep this quote in mind. Be persistent. You will make it. ( There are challenges all the way down this page and on the next page, please take a look. ) ~Nita~
