Do You Endure in Good Things?

Gevurah of Netzach

Hi everyone, Jordan Drayer, the savvy millennial voice actress whose endurance is disciplined. Today is three weeks and two days of the Omer. If you want to know more about the Omer and how it works, check out the links in the description.

We're looking at Gevurah of Netzach, the discipline of endurance. In some usages, these are synonyms, so what are we actually talking about? We're talking about the things you chose to persist in, being disciplined in how you persist as well. You can do things out of conviction to a cause, or you can do them out of fear, like the kid from The Breakfast Club being forced to play sports because his dad wants him to. He persists in getting better, but only because he's afraid of what his dad would do to him otherwise.

How else can we negatively persist in something? By a stubborn unwillingness to address errors or to change. This is like all the US states that won't move to greener energy, even when it could also bring lots of job, because they're so entrenched in their coal and gas. Or people persisting in believing in dangerous conspiracy theories even when they've been proven false in multiple ways.

So discipline yourself in what you choose to persist in, like a bad habit, as well as how you persist, like if it's out of fear or plain unwillingness to change. Honestly, I'm still getting used to the idea of calling a single person "they." I understand the non-binary thing, but it's the grammatical part that hangs me up. I wish there was another word that wasn't normally a plural word. My choices are to fight this and call them whatever pronoun I want, or to be respectful and change and call them what they're asking for, just as anyone gets upset when their name isn't said correctly.

Spectrum of colors, spectrum of genders

Today's exercise is to break one bad habit. There's the 21/90 rule of 21 days to change or create a habit, 90 to make it a lifestyle, so I'm not saying this will happen right away. But that's where the endurance part comes in!

I want to stop ripping the skin around my nails, so today I'll finally commit to it. Come up with a plan for something to do instead of the habit. For me, I could massage the area or clip the skin off, as long as I don't pull it. Extra good luck today, please like and share, and I'll see you tomorrow.
