What is perseverance?
You know that feeling..The feeling where you just don't want to do something....Or you just want to give up.
That feeling that you just absolutely spend. You can't imagine dragging yourself beyond that moment......
My name is Hana' Fedora. You might know me by reading my journal here. Although I was born in the Capital of Malaysia and had gone to a few of decent school to get my primary education, I never really actually got excellent grades. The least I got was no 11/28 that was when I'm already 16 years old. I never had the chance to know how it felt to get a straight A's.
Lucky I got into the University. Having the opportunity, I've decided to dedicated half of my university life doing volunteering job helping the unfortunate students in the rural area. Being one of the motivators, facilitators by spilling everything that I've learn throughout life, throughout studying and throughout working to them to help them improvise. Seeing them in their lifestyle made me realize how lucky I was to have the chance that they didn't have. I learn from them about life, about gratitude, about surviving.
I think to have perseverance is to know exactly how to overcome that feeling every time it hits you.
Don't look at the people around you who are doing things and think that they are made of something more than you. They'd learn some stuff and they're putting it to use and they probably willing to work really hard for it. But they are not made of anything different than you are. Don't get psych out. So long as you're willing to work past the time where you feel you had nothing left inside of you. That's perseverance.
