Persevere means to persist in anything undertaken, maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly. Wow, that is a lot to do if we want to persevere! We all have had difficulties, obstacles, or discouragements some time in our lives. Some of these obstacles may be huge, some may be small, but we still need to be strong and persevere.
Have you ever thought about the fact that the day we are born is also the day we start to age? Our early nutrition and activity can determine how healthy we age.

September is also National Skin Care Awareness month so my posts this month will be related to skin, some way or another. Our skin is an awesome organ and it protects all our other organs, so we really do need to take care of it.
