Persistence ~ I Can Do It!

After spending hours trying to work out some glitches, here on my website, I am now tired, frazzled and frayed around the edges.

My lack of computer expertise is not helping my cause any.

What I think looks right, isn’t; and what I imagine isn’t right, so often is!

Before trying to wind down my mind for the night I decided a few words of inspiration were in order. There’s nothing worse than trying to sleep, with a mind still attempting to fix up website glitches!

High up on one of the top shelves of my book case, I caught sight of the words “You Can Do It”, running down the spine of an old, musty book.

Inside the stale yellowing pages I have found the following anonymously written words, under a very relevant title…


“Nothing in the world can take

the place of persistence.

Talent will not : nothing is more

common than men with talent.

Genius will not : unrewarded

genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not : the world

is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination

alone are omnipotent”.

Okay, so I have persistence and determination. I’ll do it.

Tomorrow…. 🙂

  1. Computer-related things, especially when dealing with websites, can be so frustrating at times. And then one day, the mists clear and the veil lifts and everything suddenly works.

    It’s a mystery to me. lol!


    1. I’ve changed the theme again, Robin! This theme seems so much easier to navigate, so I hope I can do everything I want to, on an ongoing basis. Code is the real mystery to me!


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
