"Tenacity is the ability to hang on when letting go appears most attractive."  unknown

Yes, sometimes you've gotta' just grab the big cup and finish the task at hand!  That's one thing about being tenacious, I usually finish the job no matter how problematic, daunting, or laborious!  If you missed my first post about this character trait, you can see it HERE!  

In addition to my being tenacious, I'm a committed coffee drinker and always...and I do mean always...have a mug in my hand!  So, adding this page to my journal is perfect for me!  I love this blank coffee cup from Scribbles!  You can find it HERE.  Since it has no verbiage on it, I could add exactly what I wanted to say!

Here's a YouTube video on the page!  Grab your 'Big Cup' and join me!
