Don’t Quit

Last night, during an AMAZING twitter party, 2 new Mamavation Moms were announced.  It was an exciting night for Kimberly (@christlikemommy) and Amanda (@beeacutie2) as they joined our 2 LA Mamavation Moms Angela (@ninemoremonths) and Kate (@katecoleman77) in Leah’s (@bookieboo) 7 week bootcamp.  I know I for one am excited to follow their journey! 

But, that also means that 10 other finalists were not selected. 

To those that were not selected for the bootcamp, there is STILL the Move it or Lose it challenge with a grand prize of $500 and a pair of Earth Footwear so while you may feel a bit disappointed, I hope you will continue on your journey to better health and wellness.  I am here to support each and every one of you as you continue down the path to a healthier, happier you and I implore you – Don’t Quit!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
