Poverty leads to more poverty. Poverty also leads to bad behavior, poor decisions, hate and jealousy towards others, and mental illness. Most people who endure poverty during childhood, grow up with mental issues that need years of therapy and recovery. On the contrary, just because you grow up with money or end up with it, doesn’t mean you won’t experience these things. One of the most depressing every day norms, is social media. Instagram is one of the top leading causes of depression and suicide in teens and young adults. Shout out to those who worked hard and stayed dedicated to achieve their goals while struggling financially. If you have a “nothing to something story,” be proud of the struggle. If you are going through the struggle now, remember the only thing that keeps someone stagnant is 1) Not realizing they are stagnant, 2) Realizing they are and doing nothing about it. 3) Too comfortable being in their position, 4) Giving up as soon as they realize how hard it is to get out. Don’t let those things stop you from being who you can and want to be. Change your mindset, change your life. – MJ #mentality #makeachange #doyou

When I decided that fitness would be my new year resolution, I knew that the journey would be interesting and fun. I’ve been trying new things to stay in shape and to gain lean muscle. For the past two weeks, I’ve been working out three to four days a week. The workouts consist of playing basketball for 30-45 minutes, running 1 1/2-3 miles, and/or bike riding for 1-2 hours (depending on weather and destination). My weight goes up and down between 135-141, but I’m still gaining muscle definition. I’m becoming more curvy; slim curvy.
