It’s 2017. You need motivation? No, what you need is discipline. 

Force yourself to do things. Force yourself to get up early, make your bed, go get ready, and go. Force yourself to make plans for the day, and follow through with all those plans.
Force yourself to get to class early so you can look over the material. Force yourself to pay attention in class and turn off your phone or at least put it on silent. Stop texting your friends and going on Instagram in class. You are wasting your time, so why even bother going to class if your are going to be distracted? Be selfish. Stop giving your time to people that do not matter. YOUR TIME IS SO SO PRECIOUS. STOP WASTING IT!

This is the most important thing that you can do right now, take care of you and your education. Stop being distracted by the world and it’s never ending problems. This is the time that you need to put toward yourself because you are the greatest investment of your life.


EVERYDAY is a chance to wake up and give your 150%.
EXHAUST yourself. That is the only way to give your all. At the end of the day, you should be exhausted from working so much, from reading so much, from exercising so much.
Don’t go home because you are tired. Do whatever you need to get done and don’t come home until it’s all done. Stay late at the library. You feel tired? Good. That is how you know you are giving it your best. Go to the gym, and give your work out your all.
When you go home, you should feel like you are drained. You should feel like you have nothing left to give because you gave it your all. Because then, you can be proud of yourself and everything you have achieved.
Giving it your all is what matters. Give your all every single day. Discipline your mind and your body and you will become successful.

You fall back one day? That is O.K., try the next day. You are human, so accept your mistakes. However, love yourself enough to know that you will never give up working on yourself and your dreams.
THIS IS IT. THIS IS YOUR LIFE. Right now, no matter what circumstances we are all in, is what matters. Take advantage of today. Write down your dreams and force yourself to work toward them, one day at a time. 
THIS is your year. This is your life. One day at a time baby. One day at a time. Go ahead and don’t stop.

Imagine Tom being your personal trainer...

Tom had been your personal trainer for about 6 months now. He was so good at motivating you to work hard to reach your goals. He was the thing you was missing.

You always looked forward to your sessions together. First you’d go for a jog around the local park, followed by you both using the equipment at the gym, then you’d both jog to your house and have a smoothie to finish off the session. Tom was now more than your trainer he was one of your close friends - you could tell him anything & he could tell you anything. 

You knew Tom was unattached and recently began to feel more feelings towards him. You didn’t know whether you should get up the courage to tell him or to just ignore your feelings.

Tom was meeting you at the park in half an hour so you went to get ready. You stopped and met your reflection in the mirror. Something felt right - you felt happy and as if your heart was full for once in a very long time.

You arrived at the park with your music playing through your ear phones - then suddenly someone tapped you on your shoulders making you jump a mile. 

“Oh my god, TOM” You shrieked yanking out your earphones.

“Did I get you?” Tom grinned adorably in your face.

“Yes, you got me damn it.” You laughing wiping your head with your sleeve.

“Are you okay, Y/N?” Tom’s face turned concerned.

“Erm, yeah, yeah. I’m fine I just feel a bit funny.” Tom still looked concerned.

“What do you mean by funny?” He asked politely.

“I’m kind of nervous… because I want to say something & I don’t know how.” You look down tangling your fingers together.

“You’re scaring me! Come on.” Tom took your hand & led you to the empty swing set. 

You both sat next to one another and Tom just came out with, “Y/N, tell me what’s wrong?”

“Nothing’s really wrong. I just want to make things right.”

Tom looks at you even more puzzled.

“Y/N, are you thinking what I think you’re thinking?”

“I guess what I’m trying to say is - I’m just a girl, sitting next to a boy, asking him to love her…” You smile after your ridiculous attempt of trying to tell Tom that you like him.

“Did you just ask me to love you with the power of a quote from Notting Hill?” Tom asked with a straight face which turned swiftly into a grin.

He stood up, then pulled you up with him. Gently but passionately he grabbed your cheeks and pulled your lips into his. That feeling came back - your heart was full.

“You don’t have to ask me to love you - I already do & have done since the day I met you.” Tom said after releasing your face from the first kiss of many.

Above: I wanted to get my butt off the couch and out to the gym about that much. But guys, I’m FOREVER grateful to gym friends. I love those health nut bastards so much that I often get motivated to go simply to see them. Today was bodypump day (hence the shirt)…and we may have walked next door and had an encore Margarita Day celebration… (so, I guess they’re not thaaaat much of health nuts)😉

Bottom: These dingbats know who the sucker in this family is…they’re eyeballing me for treats since I brought takeout home for Conner. 🙄 Of course, I caved.
