Persistence has been needed with all goals within own life from health improvement to building that family of My own. It has meant just keeping on working towards that goal and getting better and better just like many others have had to do.

When working towards the goal of our own family it took persistence and keeping on going but also keeping on working on health and lifestyle as well as specialist appointments to confirm whether there was anything wrong or needing work. Needing to just keep the faith and keep on going until eventually achieving that goal of getting my wife Jenny pregnant. At times there was fear when is this going to happen.

It took many conversations with friends and working out what worked for us and what we needed to do achieve that goal of getting Jenny pregnant. We were both all in with the goal and kept on being all in that we both wanted a family of our own. It took over 15 months to achieve that goal. It was the same when searching for love that needed to just keep on going even when times were rough and it looked bleak that it just took keeping on going. It became those times that learnt lessons, over the years leading up to meeting Jenny there was a lot of education done on relationships and teaching myself to be that Ben who was seeking in own life.

It took a number of courses ranging from anger management and conflict skills to be able to learn to relate to others and learning those relationships skills. Persistence has been a true main stay of own life now that have been in business in a number of companies for roughly 20 years, with over 14 continued as self employed. The rich that was seeking was that family life, being able to give my own family a better life, working towards giving them a better lifestyle and allowing them to achieve their own goals and dreams.

Thank You to my amazing wonderful friends and family Linda and Michael Dlouhy and Ken Klemm for Your ongoing support love and encouragement over the many years that has helped to become a stronger better Ben than once knew. Thank you to my own wife Jenny for Your own ongoing love and encouragement over the years its greatly appreciated.

Your friend for life,

Big hugs,

P.S. Persistence has even been needed over the course of the pregnancy, yes we’ve wanted to meet the baby although it has been less than 9 months and it means just being patient and persistent with that goal.
