What or who was/were the person/words/moment that made you get it together?

The goals or dreams that you had that you weren't actively pursuing...... who snapped you into reality to start working towards them? What were they? Starting or going back to school? Starting own business or even separating yourself from negative people or places?

I had someone tell me something on yesterday that was meant to be negative but has snapped me back to reality and reminded me that if I don't make time for the things I want/need to do and achieve no one else will.

What ignited the fire in you?

A book posted by Tatee helped me lose weight.  It's called Change Or Die

The thing about motivation for me is that motivating moments are very fleeting so I need something to hold me over the long run and I need to build habits that will achieve my goal.  Anyway, its a good book, I'd suggest it if you want to achieve something but you are having trouble fixing bad habits.

My depression hit rock bottom, I saw a therapist. She reminded me that this is life. I have to live it today, not tomorrow. She taught me to live in the moment more.

When I was a teen my (passing for yt) aunt was angry with me for fighting with her daughter so she told me I'd always be fat, black, ignorant and only had to look forward to being a "baby momma"

That ignited me, I was in the 11th grade; I stopped smoking weed, lost the weight, began to study, got great grades, went on to college, have a career, married well and moved out of the hood.
Auntie and her daughter are still living in the same situation but now the daughter has four children and a live in "baby daddy" who just got out of jail.

I never mentioned this to family and I'm kind to the aunt and her daughter but they still hate me and I can live with that.Big smile

Nothing, I'm on a pathway of war and destruction. I am the darkness that clouds the light.
 
 
But seriously, no one inspires me though, I feel very uninspirational when people try to say inspiring things, but when you give me logic and facts I feel happy and I take it in.
