I Had Given Up…

I never want to write anything that isn’t sincere. I never want to give advice that I wouldn’t listen to nor am I currently acting upon. I always want to promote others to be a better version of themselves & if I can make someone’s day by a simple sweet gesture, I do so.

There came a time when I felt I couldn’t do what is listed above. I had given up on myself and even doing anything at all. It was much easier to be complacent and do nothing but yet it became painful. This is because when you know there are great gifts placed inside of you, to help others, it can be frustrating not to share it. I had given up…anything that was a part of my plans, I stopped doing.  However, the mind-set that was meant to harm me was actually used for my good. In stopping, I was able to reflect and reconsider. I examined what was going on around me and why exactly I felt giving up was my only option.  The first question I asked myself was “why’d I begin half of the things I was doing in the first place?”

Before even answering that question it became apparent to me, that I was making my decision based on my circumstances rather than what I know to be true about myself… I start all my endeavors primarily out of love and also excitement. The thought of succeeding makes me happy. I just had to remember the beginning and everything was placed back into perspective…

Moral of the story is:  Now, whenever I feel like giving up because of my circumstances and the fear of non-favorable outcomes, I think of the beginning and why I started to begin with. Those thoughts and feelings allow me the momentum I need to keep going.

So when you feel like giving up on a situation, a person, and/or yourself, just remember the love and excitement; why you started in the first place. We’re all human every day isn’t going to be easy but I’m glad to say “I had given up”, (past tense) because now I can continue, (future tense) as if I just started, stronger and better than ever!!
