I’m not gone stop until I reach the end…
Won’t Stop, is a poem that I wrote that is in the second part of TTIM, Matured & Educated. It is also one of the poems that made the cut to be performed in “Wide Open”. This piece means a lot to me because as Toya #teamfitandfab would say, “the struggle is real.”
Everything worth having in life requires a struggle – at least in my experience. My career is a struggle, living a healthy life is a struggle, making good decisions can be a struggle. Nothing I have ever wanted has been handed to me. What I have learned through all of my experience is to try to get myself into a routine and then the struggle becomes easier until one day it is just a part of who you are. However, I know that breaking routines can be very easy also.
What I have been working on doing is not letting one or two bad days ruin all of my hard work. For instance last weekend with my aunt’s bridal shower I was completely out of routine. And let me tell you it took everything in my soul to drag myself to the gym this morning but I did. The reason that Won’t Stop, is such an important piece is because it is a life piece. The struggle never stops and I won’t stop fighting it. In order for me to reach my many goals I have to keep going, push past the obstacles, don’t get hung up on the bad days and even on days when I can barely crawl towards my goals at least I will give it my best because one day, as long as God blesses me with life and health, I will make it because I’m not gone stop!
