We all make choices, I choose to fight my own battles and stand firm for what I believe in.  I will never hide behind other people or make excuses for my behavior, but that’s just me and that’s what makes me different from most people. #marathonmindset

Probably not, so if it’s not absolutely necessary, doesn’t being you joy, or you’re not wildly passionate about it, you’re wasting your time - time that you can’t get back! #marathonmindset #stevejobs

Together we build, grow, and STAND strong. I may possess talents & skills that you do not possess or may not have acquired just yet and vise versa. We can teach and learn from one another.  Honestly there is nothing wrong with a little healthy competition. It helps to build character, drive, and determination; especially if you are competing to reach a goal because you’re ultimately competing to better yourself. As soon we become divided, we don’t just FALL, we FAIL one another and all the women who have worked so hard and sacrificed for women’s rights!

You may have lost it all; you may even be down to your last dollar and do not know how you’re going to survive tomorrow! The devil wants you to believe it’s over, he wants you to panic and do something stupid based on desperation or on your current negative emotions. I challenge you to do nothing about it…well not exactly, I challenge you to be still, pray on it and give whatever you are going through to God….Then do nothing else about it, don’t worry, don’t even think about it…continue on with your daily routine. Trust me, if it’s God’s will, you are not only going to survive, YOU’RE GOING TO WIN! - Tamara A. Jones #marathonmindset

Awwww my lil sis posted this today. Her message brought tears to my eyes. I’ve raised her since she was 3 years old. I was 19 with a 3 year old and a 7 year old and had no clue what being a parent was. I’d also vowed to not be a teen parent, but God had other plans for my life. So at 19 years old, I became a single teen parent to my siblings. It was a long hard journey, but we survived it! They are now 22 and 26 and although it was a huge sacrifice, if I had to do it all over again, I would! If you have the responsibility of taking care of your siblings and think it’s a thankless job. Hell, being a parent in general feels like a thankless job at times, and there will be days when you want to pull your hair out or be committed to a “lunatic asylum” just know that they too are going through their own mess, and trying to find their way, but it doesn’t last forever. Do the best you can and know that they love you and even if they do not know how to show you, they really do appreciate you! #marathonmindset

HELLO JULY! Half of the year is already gone, have you reached the goals you’ve set for yourself? Have you even set any goals for yourself? If not, it’s not too late. Let’s set a few goals for the Month of July. 1 or 2 short term goals that you can easily reach this month and a couple of long-term goals that you can start this month! Oh and one more thing, write your goals down and carry them with you! Who is with me? Let’s go! #marathonmindset

When you are your authentic self, you don’t have to put up a front. People will see through the facade anyway. #marathonmindset

Don’t give-up on your dreams or what God has placed on your heart! Most importantly don’t give up on God, if he placed it on your heart, he will open doors that no man can shut! Don’t ever let another human being intimate you or make you question yourself!! trust and believe… God has you!! #marathonmindset 😉😘
