#WednesdayWisdom: Quitting is sometimes the answer

Standard

Sounds uplifting out of the gate, right? Don’t bother, just quit?

Maybe.

And I’m not sure that I’m a shining example of anything to anyone, I’m muddling through, probably not even as well as most.

But.

Sometimes, there is something in your life you’re doing because you feel like you “should.” Something you started and if reruns of the Brady Bunch have taught you anything you finish what you start.

The world doesn’t like quitters. So we are told.

Yet there are times when quitting is, without question, the right thing to do. For you, for your health, whether mental or physical.

Of course right now I’m talking about my decision to toss #NaNoWriMo. I started on a whim, thought it could be fun with all that was happening.

Turned out all it did was make everything harder. It was one too many things to worry about.

So I stopped. And done.

Now I pass the baton to you. Or drop it halfway because I can’t be bothered to see it all the way through. Is there something you want to quit?

What would happen if you did?

Are the benefits to not quitting greater than throwing in the towel?

Only you know the answer. Have a great Wednesday.
