Where does Tenacity come from?
February 01, 2016
Hello,

When is tenacity a good thing? It is when it is dogged and single minded, yet farsighted and determined. And you know this because your tenacity becomes a part of the story of your life that you tell yourself and which comforts you as this story has progression and development. In other words your tenacity does not leave your mired and stuck.

But when does tenacity slip into stupidity and crassness and bone headedness? I think the answer to that is if your life story does not please you and you have a sneaking suspicion that it never will.



JANUARY POEM
by Sophia Yasmeen

    In the midst of January melancholy, while the night is cold and dark, not a star in sight .... birds don't come to the feeder anymore and their songs no longer greet me in the morning...I allow my inner light continue to shine.
    Drawing wisdom from the past, letting the future to shape itself around me. My mind is a sanctuary where shafts of golden sunlight laze as though resting in the aisles of some great cathedral.
    Everything thing is as it should be....... For the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.

Sophia is a beautiful writer and I am happily sharing her work in my Feelbetter Newsletter.

best wishes
Andrew
