This girl is NOT quitting!

I was on my walk around Redondo and I came across this billboard which made me pause.

You Suck
I’ve quit on a few things in life. I won’t dwell the list is loooooong.

I’ve nearly quit on writing about seven million times, but that’s because the demons in my head tell me I suck. Sometimes I listen.
There are things I will never quit.

I won’t quit telling my grunty-teen that I love him. Even though he bristles when I do and does a plank when I pull him into a not-wanted hug. I never told my mom enough and I regret it. I hope some of this will stick with grunty-teen like World of Warcraft does to him.

I won’t quit the notion that there are more good people in the world than bad. Though Belgium gives way to a pause. If I quit then they’ve won. Nope, not on my watch you haven’t.

I won’t quit on forgiving myself for the things in my past, I can’t fix, the long list I didn’t accomplish today or catastrophes in my future I can’t foresee, but worry about.

Is there anything you won’t quit?

    Great post and I too won't quit on myself or may family there are times I could and my kids are all adults now but I love them and always will and I try so hard to be positive and enjoy

    Have Fun

    Happy Easter :)

    1. Helen, my lovely. Thank you for stopping by. You are one of the most positive people I know. It is a joy to be around you. xx

  2. If I'm lucky, life is long and comprised of many phases, so I try not to think in terms of quitting and more in terms of doing what makes the most sense for where I am at the moment. That said, I think it's unlikely I'm going to resume those guitar lessons I quit in sixth grade. ;)

  3. You are the sagest person I know, Samanthe. Your guitar and my ballet lessons are best left in the past. :)
