Determination is the only thing that will get you where you want to be. Motivation will not, as it is temporary, people will not, as they do not have the same mind as you. You must be determined. If you can picture the life you want to lead, you have every capability of making it a reality, don’t let small things get in your way. Use the people around you as guidance and use motivation on those tough days, but remember, your determination will carry you through.

alec had to admit, when magnus casually mentioned that alec should show him a few things about archery on a sunny tuesday morning in the target range of the institute, alec had felt a kind of smug pride burn in his chest. the sunlight had been filtering through the windows, catching bits of dust and catching at the tips of magnus’s spiked up hair and he looked… breathtaking. but more than that there was this amused kind of darkness around his eyes as he said it so casually, while alec still had an arrow nocked.

“what do you say?” magnus had finished with, tipping his head to the side slightly, leaning against one of the pillars. and alec was pretty sure his grin was blinding as he eagerly responded.

“i’d love to.”

maybe if he hadn’t been so smug he would have seen the mirth twinkling in magnus’s eyes but instead his pride eclipsed him and he turned back to the target, letting his arrow fly. it hit dead center and at that moment he felt entirely invincible if he was honest with himself.

It is easy to love running on good days. It is much harder to love it when you pant after first kilometres. When your sports bra won’t stay in the place. Your legs still hurt from the previous run. It is too cold/hot/windy/rainy. You feel like shit. Or you just had a really bad day and running is the last thing you feel like doing. But those days are the most important because that’s when you are growing stronger.

Two years difference 💙 There is no easy way, there is no secret 💙 It’s gonna take hard work and sacrifice 💙 You will want to give up, you will cry, you will probably think you can’t do it 💙 But you can 💙 Never give up on yourself because you are capable of so much more than you think 💙 DO NOT GIVE UP 💙

Sometimes I look at old pictures and I think- who was that girl? That girl on the left was sad. I used to lay in bed and cry.. I wanted so much more out of my life and my weight was truly holding me back from being happy. I never imagined being where I am today. I used to make every excuse as to why I was over weight- you know the “I’m big boned” or “my body was meant to be this size” all of which is total bullshit- but at the time I totally believed it! I had no idea what my body really looked like under all those pounds- 130 to be exact! Now it’s hard for me to look I the mirror and see what the rest of the world sees. Obviously I know I’m no longer “fat” but I also don’t see myself as “thin.” Sometimes I feel like a whale- how is that even possible? Extreme weight loss is a total mind fuck. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I just hope you know- if you’re that girl on the left- you are brave, you are capable, you are significant- and you can accomplish anything 💕

¿Por qué? 

¿Por qué a pesar de todo este tiempo te sigo queriendo? 

¿Por qué no puedo dejar de pensar en ti? 

¿Por qué si ya no hablamos sigo extrañando tu voz? 

¿Por qué añoro tus palabras? 

¿Por qué no puedo aceptar que ahora eres de alguien más? 

¿Por qué sigo escribiendo sobre ti?

¿Por qué aún sonrío al escuchar tu nombre?

¿Por qué sigo soñando contigo?

¿Por qué te sigo dedicando canciones?

¿Por qué sigues siendo la protagonista de mis historias?

¿Por qué siento todo esto por ti?

¿Por qué no puedo simplemente rendirme?

¿Por qué sigo manteniendo esperanzas falsas?

¿Por qué nos alejamos?

¿Por qué sigo esperando tu mensaje?

¿POR QUÉ?…
