Define perseverance: Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
I am not sure where I got mine from. I have been through hell and back many times now. So I am very thankful to say that I have it. #perseverance#resilent#strength
Ran my first full marathon this Sunday (26.2 miles! 😱)!! I started running with @pabs_94 around April last year (died with 3 miles), then continued with @luminousluz in the summer when we ran our first 1/2 marathon!! After almost dying with the 1/2 I had the ‘brilliant’ idea of running a full marathon. Pabs agreed to train w me and we started last September. It was rough, we trained early mornings (4x week) and then went off to work and/or class. We trained through hot/humid days, fall, and the snowy cold winter (it was nice to see the changing seasons). When I was running I reflected on the days that running helped me deal with hard emotions (worries about CA fires, DACA worries, and most recently losing my abuelito Papá ‘Mingo). Thinking about my family, my abuelitos, and my awesome friends gave me strength to finish. I’m grateful for having amazing friends who supported my craziness. ♥️ #runaustin18#marathoners#ranThroughBronchitis#asthma -who? #iRunBetterThanCongress#resilent#MuxeresXingonasRunMarathons#WaterIsLife
Recap Sunday's race! I was out of my comfortzone. I had on my watch, but it wasn't on. My friend Naomi told me not to turn it on, she got me. What???? Okay!! I didn't focus on the time neither the miles. She kept track & would let me know the mile marker. I ran out of my comfortzone for sure! The picture you see👀 really touched my heart❤ My friend Martha sent it to me Sunday, after the A1A half marathon. I didn't realize in the middle that my dad's name was engraved 😭JBelair #Keepgoing 👣🏃💃 That's exactly what I did as I was running. I felt strong throughout the entire race, but at mile number 9 I slowed down just a tidbit. I then looked 👀UP called on God to help me, please strengthen me. I heard my dad's voice whispered "Be strong"💪🏿 then i looked in front of me a lady shirt had "#MrsDstrong " 💪🏿 that bought tears to my eyes & pushed me to keep going, pick up the pace you got this. My friend Naomi not knowing all this was taking place, she then said to me "You're doing good, you're stronger💪🏿 than you think you are. I pushed the more then slowed down again at mile 10 legs felt heavy, but i kept moving and at mile 11. Mile 12 i saw familiar faces,my running family calling out my name "come on","You got this"," let's go Ethel." "You got to want it bad enough. " " Dale" ...I ran as fast as i could. Mile number thirteen ran to finish line with everything i had left. Pushed to the MAX! After I crossed the finish line, I fell to the ground,I felt very weak. I was taken into the medical tent. The cramps came like crazy. I had an anti cramp pill prior to race. I ate well all week, hydrated, salt tablets mile 6 and 11.I hydrated throughout the course nevertheless. They gave me IV fluids. They really took good care of me, massaged my calves & toes as they cramped. I'm grateful to God for them. Thank you God for life, health, strength and the gift of running. #Bestrong#JeanBelair#Nostoppingher#keepgoing#tenacious#Resilent#fearless#Phil413

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
John 10:10 ESV 💜
Stop holding on to people. Let me repeat this....STOP HOLDING ON TO PEOPLE! If someone walks away from you for whatever reason, let them go. Sometimes we chase after people because we love them and we hope that we can make them see how much love we hold for them. We try to tell ourselves that they just don't understand when in reality they do understand they just know they have no intentions on staying around. Not everyone is deserving of that kind of attention. There are some who come into our lives to lie, steal, hurt and destroy us. When they abruptly leave we feel as if we did something wrong or we let them come back as justification that things are "meant to be." Understand that when someone who hurts you decides to walk away, God removed them. God said their season and lesson is over and it's time to move on. But know that He will always replace what has been taken away. He wants to give you a abundant Life, a wholesome life. You can't have that kinda life with ungrateful, negative people around you. He will replace that person with someone who uplifts you, supports you, and who truly loves you. So stop holding on, have faith. Know that want He said He was going to do will manifest. ✝️
