Just keep running. Or walking, limping or even crawling along.
Even when you can’t see progress.
Even when you don’t know if you are doing any good.
Even when no one is thanking you.
Even when it all seems hopeless.
Just. Keep. Going.
Long after you have stopped asking “why?”
When your shoes wear out.
When the strength seems to just be gone.
You find a way to dig deep, find inspiration and keep going. Just one foot at a time.
This is perseverance.
And so is this.
