It doesn’t matter how far you have to walk, how hard you have to work, or the obstacles you must overcome; as far as you have peace with your mind and heart, keep going and do not stop.

Last year I bought a book titled “We Want to do More than Survive” by Bettina L. Love. It is an interesting educational peace about Abolitionist Teaching and the pursuit of Educational Freedom. Due to school assignments, work, and lack of time, I haven’t finished the book yet. However, my desire, determination, and persistence are helping me to build daily reading habits to reach my gold of finishing Love’s book.

My point here is that determination and persistence will take you wherever you need to go, whether professionally, academically, or personally. Never give up.

Dear marlen,

I am satisfied with your document “persisting”, it is interesting to me since you tell us how it is that no matter how hard you work or how you do with your degrees, you never stop. One of the sentences that caught my attention was never give up. I feel that it really is an incredible motivation. Well I’m happy with your post.

Dear Marlene:
I am touched by your post, “persistent,” because if you always stick to something and never give up you will consistently achieve your goals. So if you can master them you can go far no matter the obstacles because you have the determination to accomplish it.
A phrase that stands out to me is “determination and persistence will get you where you need to go.” I think this is very important because if you want to be able to achieve something you have to be aware of what you need to have or learn.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I would like to know how your book is going and I would like to learn more about it. I want to know more because I give up very quickly when I can’t do something. I hope that with your publications I can learn more.

Dear Marlen,

I am inspired by your post “Persistance” because of the way you describe persistence and how far you can get if you just push through it and how you feel really motivated to do good things because of good habits in your life. The reason why it is really inspiring is that sometimes I feel unmotivated and lazy and I lack the persistence and determination to finish the homework I have or land a trick when I use my skateboard. One sentence that stood out to me is “My point here is that determination and persistence will take you wherever you need to go, whether professionally, academically, or personally.” I think this is powerful because in life persistence can help you in a very major way and be successful in any of the categories then you have listed in that sentence. Thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because you helped me get back up on my feet.

Dear Marlen, 

I am very intrigued by your post about “Persisting” because you incorporated persistence into your daily life. You described that no matter what you do, you should never give up. This also contributes to small tasks, like taking out the trash, cleaning, and walking 30 minutes a day.

One sentence that stands out is that “determination and persistence will take you wherever you need to go.” I think this is important because life is full of obstacles, ups, and downs, so to get past those struggles, you have to be determined to conquer them. Not just be determined, but also never give up, and continue growing and adapting.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I can see how encouraged you are to continue pushing yourself through tough times. You are a strong person and have probably faced a tough time in some part of your life, but you got through it. Continue working hard, and it will pay off. I believe in you.

Dear Marlen,

I am very inspired by your post, “Persisting,” because you talk about so many encouraging things in a short manner. I agree with the fact that in order to achieve some things, you need to be determined and have a positive mindset.

One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is, “Never give up.” Although these may just be three words, they hold a lot of power and meaning. This phrase can be used to get you through many mountains and hurdles that you may face in life. By never giving up, you can push through and achieve what you want to do. Whether it be school or other things, by persisting, you can make it to your goal.

Thank you for your writing. I am looking forward to what you write about next, because I like the way that you delivered a positive message in a few words. Hope to see that you accomplish many other things.

Dear Marlen,

I am happy by your post “Persisting” because it encourages me and others to not give up. Everyone at one point in their life has faced struggle but like you said they have to continue on. I have just started school I will definitely have to remember to not give up.

One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “My point here is that determination and persistence will take you wherever you need to go, whether professionally, academically, or personally”. I think this is encouraging because these are great values to live by.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I liked this post very much. Your post and attitude are what more people in this world need. Your determination is very inspiring and I would like to see more of what you think.

Dear Marlen
I am moved by your post “Persisting,” because I think that with being persistent anything is achievable. Everyone faces hardships and obstacles but the thing that separates the great from the average is that the great fight and continue while others quit.

One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “as far as you have peace with your mind and heart, keep going and do not stop.” I think this is powerful because I believe that you have to be at peace with yourself before anyone else. Being mentally strong and available for yourself, allows you to be there for others and ready to help.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I feel that we have similar thoughts and you have powerful writing abilities. I hope you get to finish that book and share any information that could possibly relate to this.

Dear Marlen, 
I am very interested in your post about persistence because I agree that having the mindset to continue and be determined to complete something will help you push through setbacks and obstacles and finish what you started.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “Never give up.” This is because I think this is a great motto to live by because it will help you push through and persist. I feel like having a determined mindset will help you achieve your end goals because even if you fail you will continue to try and not give up because you have failed once already. Not only this but I also believe that perseverance and determination will motivate you to continue anything you have started that you may have put off.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I really think  we share the same concept when it comes to being determined and having perseverance in life. I really enjoyed your post and would love to continue to see more to which I have similar thoughts about in the future.
