Don't Quit

Sometimes a simple conversation can turn into a motivational moment. We all need one. Have you ever had a moment when you felt like quitting.

Last week my live turned into one of those moments. It started us a chat with a group of ladies and turned into a moment of encouragement and motivation that ended in me reciting on of my favorite poems. I memorized this poem in the 6th Grade.

Yes, I was into motivational quotes and poems even at that age.

Don’t Quit

When Things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the Debt is high,

When you want to smile , but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest if you must, but don’t quit.

Life is queer with its twist and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a fellow turns about,

When he might have won had he stuck it out.

Don’t give up through the pace seems slow,

You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than

It seems to a faint and faltering man,

Often the struggler has given up

When he might have captured the victor’s cup,

And he learned too late when the night came down.

How close he was to the golden crown,

Success if Failure turned inside out

The Silver tint in the clouds of doubt,

And you never can tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems afar,

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,

It’s when things seem worst when you mustn’t QUIT

Quitting is so much easier than pushing through. When things get hard, when it seems like everything around you is not cooperating, slow down, take a step back and remember your “WHY”.

Why did you start what you are doing? What put it on your heart? Never get distracted by the negativity and the challenges. Push through and QUIT…DON’T

Keep Reaching for your SWEETEST LIFE,
