never give up

Friendly Friday (publication #8)

Welcome to another publication of Friendly Friday! Today I want to talk about something I have always wanted to do, but every time I try I seem to fail. The important part is I never give up and I keep on trying.

This tasks seems minimal compared to others I am sure but I have always struggled with planning and organizing. Since a very young age I have been more of a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl. I’ve never been one for following schedules. When I go on vacation I prefer the untraveled path. I live for that adventure and that thrill. At the same time I know there are certain aspects of life that I can’t really do that in: bills, appointments, family events, etc.

So I am currently operating out of two different planners. One for my finances and one for everything else. Now I am getting ready to add homeschooling and lesson planning to the mix. So I am looking for my ultimate way to take all of that and put it into one. Let me tell you not happening yet! I keep looking and deciding and trying to plan my planning. Instead I just need to sit down and do it!

In addition to my planning struggles I struggle the same when it comes to organization. Hands down if it wasn’t for my daughter Salali I would have the most disorganized house ever. My kitchen will probably implode when she moves out in a couple years. I have zero ability when it comes to making things fit and function together. I see such cute ideas on line but I can never get them to work out. I buy groceries and look at the fridge like these won’t fit, yet she comes in and in five minutes they all fit and in an orderly fashion that makes perfect sense.

So there you have it in a nut shell. I am not a great planner or organizer, but I still continue to try my best. Who knows maybe one day it will click and then again maybe it won’t. Either way it is a great lesson in being persistent and trying your best! Until next time… What’s your confession?


Never Give Up

Hello fellow readers! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Today I want to talk to you about the importance of never giving up. I don’t care what we are talking about you simply have to keep going.

Yesterday was my one year keto anniversary and I could have easily gave up today and been happy with where I am at. I chose to keep going though because I know I can still achieve more and I know I will. I don’t want to give up. Giving up would mean I am giving up on myself and my achievements. I don’t want that.

We all have goals, dreams, ambitious, and things we want to accomplish. Well if you get frustrated and give up you will never accomplish it. I want to be a successful blogger, writer, and painter. I know that I can’t accomplish all that over night, and I know there will be people who disagree or hate what I am doing. The difference is that I am not giving up and I am going to keep on giving it my all. The way I look at is the day I decide to give up could be the day that success knocks on my door. So I won’t give up and I will keep doing what I love. I am doing this for me no one else and that is what really matters.

You need to take the time to realize your goals and surround yourself by positive people that will encourage you to keep driving toward those goals. Find where your support is and embrace it. For every negative that tries to knock you off course create a new positive to take it’s place. You will never make very one happy, there will always be a critic. Just don’t allow that critic to stop you and make you give up. Use their criticism as fuel to prove them wrong and succeed.

In perspective of diet and keto, no one is perfect. We all have a day where we ate something that we shouldn’t have or tried something that didn’t quite fit in. It doesn’t matter because tomorrow is a new day and you just do better tomorrow. You don’t give up and cave in and eat a bag of chips and pint of ice cream, all that is going to do is allow you to give up. Instead admit your fault pick yourself up and strive on to be better the next day.

Determination is the key to so many things in our lives. The minute we give up we are letting ourselves done. You are worthy of what you want you just have to work hard and be determined to get it. I know I will never give up and I will achieve my goal, if anything for myself! Until next time…Keep Ketoing On!
