Strenght, Dance & Determination 💪 Perseverance #APART

in ReggaeJAHMlast month

The saying goes that patience is a virtue, which I don't deny, but if I'm being really honest I know I'm not the most patient person. I get bored very easily. That's why I don't like waiting in lines or having to wait till my number gets called out or having to wait in my doctors' waiting room. In those moments I need my brain cells and/or my eyes to be engaged, like reading a book or a magazine, observing my surroundings, etc.

But there are some instances where I have experienced the value of "patience is a virtue" myself. The good things in my life have come after some time, but I was patient and I work(ed) hard to achieve those goals. I have also learned that some things need to play themselves out first and that you must push through, persevere, before you may reap the benefits.


I wasn't the most flexible when I started my dance training, but as the picture suggests, this isn't the case anymore. Through hard work, putting in the time and effort I became stronger and more flexible than I ever thought I could be.

Keeping with the theme, the fitting song Perseverance of Demarco keeps me in the mindset of determination and not giving up and keeps me on working and fighting for what I want(ed).

So whatever I may go through, whatever hardships or stress I need to endure I will let everything play out as it should, but one thing I know is that I will persevere..... 💪

And to all those reading this post, who may feel the hardships these times have brought, those stressing over work, family, school, etc. do not give up and keep your head high and keep on grinding, because the rewards may exceed your expectations. Even if things don't go accordingly to plan, keep on pushing because in the end it'll all be worth it.

That's why I don't like waiting in lines or having to wait till my number gets called out or having to wait in my doctors' waiting room.

If someone likes that, it should be in some hospitalized institution... lol... Nobody likes that, and when I have to go to the bank, medic, or something similar, my body starts to scream...

But, I don't consider myself impatient because of that, as that's just a trivial and usually unimportant thing... As you said in the continuation, being patient and determinated for things that ARE IMPORTANT is the most important...

Changing your body through physical excersize looks easy from outside, but only you know how it is to train every day and to see results after a couple of months, or years, pushing hard every... single... day...

Thanks for inspirational post!

I know... hahahaha I put out going to the doctors only because of that wasted time. I hope one day that I may be able to experience doctors appointments to be efficient; when my time's up I don't have to wait any minute longer until my turn and that I don't have to see my physician for certain things. Same goes for civil offices in my country.

But indeed, putting in the effort, time and dedication for those things that matter outweighs those sweat and tears. No regrets there. Keep on persevering! 💪

Thank you... 😊
Press on! 💪

You too ;)
My Italian Grandfather used to say...:Avanti,avanti! (Keep on,keep on ;)

Oh nice! I have learned a new word 😁
There's a volleyball team named Avanti in my country; now I know what it could mean, but it's being named after the bird Avanti

Literally it would mean...: Forward,Forward...
It comes from the first line of attack in war from
back in the days 😉

Aha, makes sense

Wow , you jumped and did that ? That’s insane!

Indeed patience and perseverance, it’s easy to quit especially when you see others quitting around you, I felt that way about this community/project but I shall preserve and me things play out.

Thanks for the Sunday inspiration. And the blast from the not too distance past. I like that part where he says “mek it ina liiife!”

Hihihi yeah I am known to be the jumper and twirler in my dance community 😅

I know the feeling though, there were instances where I wanted to just give up and didn't even care. But I made it thus far and because I knew/know what I want(ed) that I didn't give in and kept/keep on pushing through.

Yeah this tune really keeps the mindset straight on your goals:
Work hard fi you goal and you will achieve 💪

Let's make this community thrive! 👊

instances where I wanted to just give up and didn't even care.

Oh yes, I can relate.

For reals, know what you want and keep it moving and don't be affected by the noise.

Let's make this community thrive!

Lets do it, early days yet, let us set the foundation brick by brick. This community may be a savior for many in the days ahead.

Glad to have you around. 👊

Yeah, have felt very welcome from the start and hope it may be that also for others.
