Giving Up?

Life's problems wouldn't be called "hurdles" if there wasn't a way to get over them. ~Author Unknown

Have you been working on a goal and now thinking about giving up? 

Do you know why you’re giving up? 

Don’t you deserve to win too?

  1. I remember when I first took an interest in photography and how often I would get discouraged and felt like giving up on my dream of taking photography further. I am so glad that I pressed on! It was def. worth it to win and to earn that for myself. I love the quote that the night is often darkest just before the dawn. OFten times I think this is true with the hurdles we face just as we are about to finish a goal..we might encounter a lot of challenges but, if we press on the light of dawn will break through!

  2. Love Casey's commment. I've got 7 lbs to lose to get back to my pre-prego weight...It's been 2 1/2 years, and I just can't shake it. I feel like giving up and saying "this is just me now" but I know I can do it...I just have to work harder.

  3. I'm always working towards my life goals, always. Sometimes I stray from them, but I have to keep going. Right now, I just am trying to cross things off my 24 Before 24 list, and I'm always afraid I won't complete them...What's the worst that can happen though? I do them after I turn 24 :)

  4. love your posts...always keep me thinking and putting things into perspective!

    I have a HUGE goal of the Houston half marathon this year and daily, I think about giving up but I know the feeling I will have when I cross that finish line, knowing I completed something so challenging, so I dust myself off and prepare to train!!

  5. My goal is to lose this twenty pounds that I have carried around for the past couple of years. I start to and I do great, but then things get in the way and my motivation to move fizzles. I used to be an athlete and I am wondering where that energy went. I know I will get back there. I hope you are doing well. Have a great day!

  6. Such quick and simple words, but a nice kick in the butt. Thank you.

  7. Love Casey's comment. Love your questions. My goals need to be more specific and direct- I think I've been dancing around them a bit too long.

  8. Hi TV, It sounds like you have a goal too. I hope you're not giving up! Sometimes it's easier to let fear win and to give up, but there's no reward in giving up. I'm still plugging away on my book; it's one of my many New Year's Resolutions I made this year...I'm still working on being the best mom to my little guy too. I suppose completing the book will have an ending, but my second goal is here to stay for as long as I'm a mom to my son.
