I Quit!!

I'm a quitter! I am...there I put it in writing and Dear Chicken, the sky did not fall. Life will still move forward. I have heard so many people spit negative arguments about quitting. There is even a shadow cast upon those who quit. So cast away...I am a QUITTER!!!

I love starting new projects, I wish I could post pictures of all my little projects, but they are only half done, no bragging rights for those. Or a quarter done...rarely completely done. But I have a good reason for this...actually a great reason. Not an excuse. I try...quite hard actually...to live life to the fullest. I try not to waste time doing things I don't like to do. But I want to try everything! Everything, everything, everything. I want to try painting and drawing, renovations and building. I am under no false pretenses that we are going to live forever. I don't want to squander away time doing something I am not really interested in, while the world holds promise of  millions of interesting things I haven't tried yet.

How can I put hours of effort into something if I am not enjoying myself? So. the desk in our bedroom is only half sanded...who cares? Well maybe Scott because that's where he studies BUT it's not bothering him. And it doesn't bother me. I don't look at the desk and think, "Oh, another project I didn't finish." I look at the desk and tell myself, " I am glad I didn't buy the paint that was suppose to replace the color." =)

This doesn't apply to everything. I don't like cleaning my bathrooms but they get done. And sometimes waiting at the doctors office doesn't appease me but I do it. When I start losing interest in something I can feel my eyes starting to glaze over, my mind thinking of all the other things I could be doing. Of course this only relates to projects...painting, knitting, perhaps a new online course that I thought was going to be loads of fun.

So I'm off to find something new and gratifying to start--perhaps I should sign up for a cake decorating class or a new exercise regime...And look at that... the sky is still in place =)

Entirely agree! Why bother wasting precious time doing something you hate (or spending time with someone you loathe) when it's so easy to just walk away. I'm a quiter too and I'm proud to say it!

I am so glad that there are others like me=) I would LOVE to go for coffee and chat about all the things I want to do and learn. Coffee is something that I definitely won't quit =)
