And when things start to happen,
Wow, perseverance is so chilled out. Sounds like all your kid has got to do is keep moving those feet and they'll "start happening." Stated as simply as it is so early in the text, it's easy to take this passage for granted. It's not until we overcome all the odds that the "not stewing" part starts to resonate.

Somehow you'll escape
Again, perseverance is presented as simply moving, which just so happens to be the exact opposite of what happens in the Waiting Place. While you might find scary paths, you might find Boom Bands, too. The point is to keep moving forward, even if you're not sure what direction you're headed in.

But on you will go
On and on you will hike.
Ah, the Return of the Jedi! Erhm, we mean, return of the confidence! Which sadly features no ewoks. The thing is, now this confidence has real meaning since your child persevered through all of their problems beforehand. Perseverance is not an abstract concept anymore, one we're not sure will stand up to those monsters popping over the hedge. We know it works. So your kid goes ahead and keeps using it.
