I am a QUITTER and I am proud of it. I know that sounds odd because quitting is typically shameful. But I am not ashamed, not now.
You see quitting is unnatural to me. I have always stuck with things to the very end, always felt too responsible to bail out of commitments, always worn myself out with impracticable commitments.
But not anymore, because today I proudly said, “I QUIT” to a volunteer commitment that had been hanging over my head and exhausting me.
I finally came to the conclusion that my time is valuable. That it is MY TIME to be spent how I CHOOSE. (I know, you are probably thinking, “Duh Lindsey.”)
And just because I sign up for something, that doesn’t mean that I always have to follow-through it through to completion. Because I shouldn’t invest my precious hours in things that are draining, dissatisfying, and irritating, when I can be dothings that are energizing, rewarding, and fulfilling.
Today I am a QUITTER. And in quitting, I realized how empowering it is to reclaim my time.
Do you have any obligations that you stick with just because you feel obligated? What would it feel like to quit? Is quitting something you should/could consider?
