Perseverance, Do You Have It?

Last Update: January 06, 2022

Hello WA Friends,

I have come to a standstill again. I am struggling with writing headlines. I have no problem with writing the articles but am having difficulty coming up with eye-catching titles.

This got me thinking about Perseverance. Big word. But appropriate for the situation. You see my mom made the best Divinity Candy at Christmas. She didn't use a candy thermometer and she used a hand mixer.

I was determined to make the perfect divinity. Before I got my stand mixer, I would buy a powerful (i was hoping) hand mixer capable of making this delicious candy, every year, hoping that this was the one.

And every year it was a flop. I used a candy thermometer and my stand mixer when I finally got one. But it wasn't the tools, it was me!

You see, to make the perfect divinity you have to do 2 things. Make sure the candy syrup is cooked to the right temperature and that you do not under beat or overbeat the mixture.

I got the candy syrup to the right temperature but for some reason, I always ended up beating it too long. It would just crumble. Not the pillowy, soft, melt-in-your-mouth candy that it was supposed to be.

But with perseverance, I finally achieved my goal. There were so many batches that ended up in the trash. I would pause, rest, and ponder on it but I never gave up.

With Perseverance I did it!

So with Perseverance, I will conquer my current problem. I will do my searching, studying, reading, and asking questions, whatever I have to do. But I will persevere!

To make our dreams come true, we have to have perseverance. Do you have it?

Hi Talanne
Every now and again I take a look through keywords that are being picked up from my articles and showing in GSC. I then take inspiration from those GSC keywords ... especially ones that I had not expected to be found in my article.

So glad you conquered the candy making and now it’s time to conquer your current dilemma. I know you can conquer this too!
