If you read my last blog post or if you have been keeping up with me via social media, you know I have been celebrating my birthday with my close family and friends. (Birthday vlog coming soon y’all 🙂 ) While living in the moment, I was not able to keep up with my normal posting schedule this past Tuesday.
I really enjoy blogging and my goal is to be as consistent as possible. As I was talking to my coworker about this issue, I came to the conclusion that I will not to beat myself up about it. Instead I will use this as an opportunity for growth by encouraging and motivating you to keep moving forward as I remind myself to do the same.
In one of my favorite songs, A Beautiful Day, by India Arie it states:
“Life is a journey, not a destination. There are no mistakes, just chances we’ve taken. Lay down your regrets cause all we have is now.”
No one is perfect. At times when we do not see the results we want, we easily get frustrated and quit. Well today I want to encourage you not to quit! No matter how hard it seems, no matter how long the road seems, no matter how many naysayers you have, if you are working towards something your heart truly desires, whatever you do, do not quit!
If you stop trying to reach the desires of your heart you will end up being spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically dead.
Yes life gets in the way sometimes but it is extremely important that you continue working towards your goals. Even if you end up taking the tiniest step, do not be discouraged. Every single step you take no matter how small it is, will only bring you closer to accomplishing your goal(s).
It does not matter if you are working on a special project, a new business venture, learning a new skill, or trying to achieve your fitness goals, no matter what it is do not give up.
Even if you stray from the track, the most important thing you can do is get back up, dust yourself off, and keep pressing towards your goal!
You can do it
Keep your eyes on the prize
Live in the moment
Always do your best
Hope this post inspired you to keep pressing towards your goals. Remember you only have one life so live it beautifully 🙂
Peace & Love,
