Hi there, Journal & Friends,
Yep, time again for... Toon Tuesday!
Continuing the Toon Alphabet, today is brought to you by the letter D.
firmness of purpose, resoluteness...
firm or fixed intention to achieve a desired end...
How determined are you?
Has it increased since you started? Decreased?
Does it waver in the face of adversity?
Or does that just cause you to dig deeper, set your jaw and plow ahead?
To make it to the end of this journey takes a bucket load of Determination. Sometimes my Determination feels weak... and I need to remind myself of WHY I am doing this. I need to throw more wood on the fires of my Determination, to get that bonfire roaring again!
I can't drift, and take my progress for granted, and fall back into a passive attitude. Instead, I need to do whatever it takes to get revved up again, and take an aggressive approach.
It takes effort...
It takes work...
It takes DETERMINATION!

From Dr Phil's book: "No matter what happens, I'll stay the course. If I do what is required, I will succeed."
My verse for today: "Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs."
My quote for today: "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people 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. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." --Calvin Coolidge
Enjoy the Journey,
