There are going to be periods where it appears nothing is going on. This is not an excuse for you to remain stagnant. Work fucking harder.

Just because you cant see the whole staircase, doesn’t mean it’s not there. The times that don’t seemingly demand more of you, are the ones that matter the most.

Your actions create results.


Please take time to read this! Please! Quitting is not only option, there’s always a way. If your life is hard, try even harder to achieve your goal. Don’t let you life defeat you. DON’T GIVE UP! May be someone out there desperately seeking for help but unable to say, you can motivate them not to quit! REBLOG and SHARE!!

That passage in the middle was from a part by @fbffitness

That before pic was at the start of my last relationship💑. I met his mother and close family that day. I was the smallest BIG girl he’d ever been with. Smallest BIG girl at 232.5lbs 😦 He loved it all and so did I. Slowly we started to go to the gym, but that became an unhealthy pattern. We’d workout, go to work then he’d pick me up with tons of junk food. He liked my size and I did too, but when I started to see small changes I wanted more and he didn’t {hence the junk food} Anyways…when the relationship ended Nov 22, 12 I took it BADLY😢😩😔😖 in every way, except when it came to my weightloss. I began to work out more, eat way better. Dropped pounds, inches and bra sizes. Even started running🏃. He saw me out running one day, last year and stopped to talk. It was the usual “I see you gettin it in. You are doin it. Looking good.” {Insert ratchet @nickiminaj voice: YEA, I KNOW} 😂😂😂💁 Sometimes, it takes the WORST of things to happen for you to start becoming your BEST SELF. Back then, he was my 🌎 and I couldn’t see nothing else…now, I’m my EVERYTHING and nothing is perfect, but it’s exactly how it’s supposed to be.

Never stop striving for the best that is within you. Never stop hoping for all of the righteous desires of your heart. But don’t close your eyes and hearts to the simple and elegant beauties of each day’s ordinary moments that make up a rich, well-lived life.
—  Dieter F. Uchtdorf

A coach once told me when I was running “Don’t slow down, it’s how you push when you feel you can’t go no more that counts”.

That applies to any activity we want to #succeed in. The times that seem the hardest, impossible, and unexpected are the #moments that build you.

(at Past Tough Times)

don’t quit

when things go wrong, as they sometimes will. when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill. when funds are low and debts are high. and you want to smile, but you have to sigh. when care is pressing you down a bit. rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

life is queer with it’s twists and turns. as everyone of us sometimes learns. and many a failure has turned about. when she might have won had she stuck it out. so don’t give up though the pace seems slow. you might succeed with another blow.

often the goal is nearer than it seems to a faint and faltering woman. often the struggler has given up. when she might have captured the victor’s cup. and she learned too late, as the night slipped down, how close she was to the golden crown.

success is failure turned inside out. the silver tint the clouds of doubt. you never can tell how close you are. it may be near when it seems afar; so stick to the fight when your hardest hit. it’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.

I'd like to take a minute to reach out to my tumblr family...

As many of my friends and family know, my Pop has been fighting stage 4 lung cancer for 10 months now. Recently, he made the decision to discontinue his chemo and treatment to enjoy the rest of his days in peace with his family. My Pops final expenses are soaring and his life insurance will not allow us to collect unless he lives for 2 years (April 2016). At this time, all we can do is ask that you all keep us in your thoughts and prayers. If you aren’t able to help, that’s okay too. We’re just incredibly appreciative of the people in our lives willing to help us through this. Thank you all so much for the love and support!
