Persist is continue firmly or obstinately in an opinion or a course of action in spite of difficulty, opposition, or failure.

An opportunity to be strong.
Word of the Week: Tenacity
The word for this week is tenacity, which is the ability or quality of having a firm grip on something, being very determined, or continuing to exist. I don't really feel like I've got a grip on anything right now, but I am determined that my work should continue to exist, even if it is being completed a little more slowly than I would prefer.
