I remember the first day of Kindergarten. The crowded hallways, people I didn’t know and the unfamiliarity of it all – I began to cry, because I knew my mom was going to leave me, and I just couldn’t understand why she would leave me in such a strange place with all of those strangers. I was terrified. But leaving wasn’t an option, so I had to muster up the courage and get on with it. My mom dried my tears and I entered the classroom, scared out of my mind.

Last week was the first in a series of articles about my journey with weight loss and the virtues I am calling upon to help me.
The first was Creativity: finding new and innovative ways to incorporate healthy foods into my lifestyle, regardless of which eating plan I choose, and trying interesting and fun avenues for exercise.
This week I have been traveling and have been outside my structured environment and routine that has thus far kept me on track. With challenges ahead, I focused on the virtue of Perseverance.
Perseverance is about overcoming obstacles and challenges while remaining steadfast and committed. It requires patience, determination and discernment. I have always loved how each virtue builds on and incorporates several others.
