Don't You Quit

Saturday, March 05, 2016

I love the poem "Don't You Quit." I believe in what it says..."If life is pressing you down a bit, rest if you must, but don't you quit.

A year or so ago I read the poem below on SparkPeople. I loved how they changed the meaning to reflect our journey. I am sharing it here today as a reminder that our journey will not always be perfect There will be things that challenge us and make us question but we CAN get to goal if we just keep working at it.

I hope it inspires you to remember no goal is beyond our grasp if we just "DON"T QUIT."

Spark on!


DON'T QUIT!! (Spark People Edition)

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it all down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
And forgot all about being healthy and thin.
So what! You went over your allowance a bit.
It's your next move that counts....


It's a moment of truth, its attitude and change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great until now;"
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow.

It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But often the strugglers, when losing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
This is a mistake....
