Things that are worth having are not always easy to obtain. It could be something financial, material or even spiritual, but they usually do not appear in front of you when you wake up in the morning. Most times it comes with a lot of hard work and quite a few failures. Even in matters of the heart this is true; we do not always find our true love and perfect partner on the first dance.
I am grateful for being granted perseverance from our creator. I have failed many times, but I have not quit! I learn from my mistakes, (most of the time), and I progress forward with my life. I am grateful for having a thirst of knowledge and for being able to quench that thirst through education.
