    I Don't Know How!

    I never was a quitter ('cept that time I quit smoking) to me quitting is like giving up on yourself! And that is just what the enemy wants... Can't let that happen!

    Maybe That Makes Me

    stubborn, but to give up admits defeat.  I have been defeated by not being enough of what ever and so to give up willingly and to just quit that eats at me and it is something that I have a say over.   So the choice is always there but to choose to keep on working and...

    Being a gymnast has taught me a lot

    that can be applied to real life. One of the many things is no matter how many times you fall, no matter how hard you fall, you have to get back up and keep going.

    We All Wanna Quit Sometimes

    Life was not designed to be easy. The challenges life presents each and every one of and how we meet such challenges are what define us as individuals. There is no real reason to remain a victim after a certain point.

    It's Worth It to Not Give Up

    On the long and bumpy road of life there are plenty of rough spots, slow-downs, red-lights, jams, and detours.  Hopefully no pile-ups, though. Giving up isn't one of my options.  Projects may get delayed, or shelved temporarily.  But it is extremely rare that I...

    I made a promise to Lynn that I would never give up or anything. To her, a promise is something, so even though, I want to give up sometimes, I haven't and I won't because I made a promise to her. BroknWIngs

    Basketball Is Painful

    I never knew the game would end up so painful... I love the game but sometimes it just hurts so much. If I hadn't fell in love with game, would it hurt this much? I used to be so uncommitted so I wasn't surprised when coach wanted to cut me off last year. I wasn't surprised when...

    You have to stick to your principles

    even when you really don't want to or the reward seems worth it for just a moment of weakness. But the lines I draw and the rules I follow are what make me, me. So to venture pass such lines means changing some things but are they changes worth making? I don't know, some days...

    Surrender Not!

    If I give up than I am guaranteed to fail and disappointment wins. If I lose at least I will go down kicking ***!

    It's the Truth!

    There are plenty of times I just want to give up... just cash it all in, give my stuff away, and just fade away from the world. And I doubt not too many would even miss me, maybe for a few months, then they would get over it. BUT, I always fight on. ;-) I'm not sure if it's just...

    Yes!!!it's all about trying

    and withstanding against a situation till the last second.. if we loose we get a valuable experience. if we win it gives a confidence ;) Instead of giving up its best to face a situation till the end

    Things That Keep Me Focused

    Philippians 3:12-15 Psalms 4:23 The life and reality we are experiencing are a reflection of the thoughts we are thinking. I thank God for helping me to see the things that are blurring my vision. His word shows me where to focus. Everything else is junk.
