    When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going

     Quitting is not an option for me,  I will keep on trying till I get the results in whatever I want even if it means falling hard sometimes.  After the fall I will stand up.  It doesn’t matter how many times you fall all that matters is if you stand up after the fall. I...

    Despite Wanting To A Lot

    I reached that mark where I have invested so much in this life that to quit now and just ice myself would be such a waste. I hate waste.

    I will not quit. Not this time.

    I have quit billions and trillions of times. I have mental illnesses that cause my emotions to be erratic. I can be unpredictable. This time though, I am not giving up on what's necessary. Taking care of my body will help with the emotions. Today I am going to the gym as much as...
