This is my personal mantra, which I started using to help me get over my fear of needles (which is practically non-existent now), but I still use it in situations I don't want to do.

The last two don't really apply to the challenge, but I would feel like something's missing if I don't include them.

wanderinglynn Thanks for sharing. And I think that the last 2 do fit because sometimes taking on a new challenge requires us to get out of our comfort zone, so we have to cope with change & be brave to take that first step! 💜 6d
huntersmom1977 I love this! Gives me hope 6d
TrishB It‘s a good mantra 👍🏻 6d

Whether you‘re trying to broaden your knowledge and education by setting a reading goal, working towards a promotion at work, or setting a healthy fitness goal, take a moment to remember why you started, and what it‘s going to take to get you across that finish line! And then get out there and CRUSH IT! 💙

What motivates me to be healthier is these three kiddos. I‘ve not always been a great example to them health-wise, but I want to be. So here I go!

@wanderinglynn my motivation for the #bookfitnesschallenge #bfc
The hardest part can be mama guilt for not giving them the same experiences and opportunities they would have if I was healthy. They remember before so there is that positive.

sudi That is so sweet 💕 3w

#bookfitnesschallenge #week2 | My #motivation are these two sweet little goofballs (almost* 7 yr old on the left, 5 yr old on the right). My 5 yr old is a giant!! 😆 Today, they had soccer then we went swimming for two hours at the Y. It‘s been a fun, active day. I have to stay healthy for them, plain and simple.

Hope everyone has a great week! 👟💪🏻🚴🏻‍♀️👣📚

✨The entry question for #AbbsGiveawayWonderland was "What's your motivation/inspiration that gets you through rough times or every day life?" When I chose that question, I was just looking for new ways or others outlook on inspiration/motivation. I never expected the replies I got. I came away with so much. I'm genuinely so grateful for every one of you who participated in this. ?

BooksAndTeaJulie 💕💕💕 1y
tomes4gnomes Thank you! Your question really helped me connect with other Littens and see just how special this community is. I‘m fairly new to Litsy and I was unsure how much to share here (the internet can be cruel, you know?) but I was so moved by the kind responses. And seeing others‘ replies to your question made me feel so much less alone. 1y
abbsinwonderland @tomes4gnomes that's great!!! I love hearing that 😆 Litsy is truly amazing! 1y
SusanInTiburon @tomes4gnomes so glad you‘re here! ❤️ 1y

✨Pt. 2 of my motivation/inspiration for #AbbsGiveawayWonderland 🎉
✨ Not the best picture (1 bottle of wine & 5 shots of Pendleton), but this is one of the few pictures I do have of my boyfriend and I, even though we've been together for 3 years. Without him, I'd literally be dead (after I went septic overnight), he is my everything and I strive every day to be a better person than yesterday for him. He's everything I could ever ask for and more💜

MrBook Awwww!!! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2y
