I Quit...I think I can....

I received this this morning, and it is really good!

Motivational Speaker - Veraunda Jackson says.... "it's OK to

1. Quit arguing with people about the same old foolishness! Respect their

position and keep it moving!

2. Quit telling people your secrets when you know they are not going to keep

them! And if you keep telling them, then quit getting mad when they tell your


3. Quit trying to pull people on your journey who don't want to travel with

you. Either they believe in you and value you...or they don't!

4. Quit complaining about things you can't and won't change!

5. Quit gossiping about other people! Minding our own business should be a full

time job!

6. Quit blaming each other for things that in the big picture aren't going

to matter three weeks from now! Talk solutions...and then implement them!

7. Quit eating things you know are not good for you! If you can't smaller portions!

8. Quit buying things when we know we can't afford them! If you don't

have self control, then quit going to the stores! Quit charging things,

especially when you don't NEED them!

9. Quit staying in unhealthy relationships! It is not okay for people to

verbally or physically abuse you! So quit lying to yourself! It is not okay to

stay in the marriage for the children! Ask them and they will tell you that they

really would prefer to see you happy and that the misery you and your

spouse/partner are living with is affecting them!

10.. Quit letting family members rope you into the drama! -Start telling them

you don't want to hear it! Quit spreading the drama! Quit calling other

relatives and telling them about your cousin or aunt! Go back to #5 minding your

own business should be enough to keep you busy!

11. Quit trying to change people! IT DOESN'T WORK! Quit cussing people out

when you know that they are just being the miserable and jealous people that

they are

12. Quit the job you hate! Start pursuing your passion. Find the job that fuels

your passion BEFORE you quit!

13. Quit volunteering for things that you aren't getting any personal

fulfillment from anymore! Quit volunteering for things and then failing to

follow through with your commitment!

14. Quit listening to the naysayers! Quit watching the depressing news if you

are going to live in the doom and gloom of it all!

15. Quit making excuses about why you are where you are or why you can't do

what you want to do!

16. Quit waiting on others to give you the answers...and start finding the

answers for yourself! If what you are doing isn't working for you...then quit it

17. Quit settling and start making your dreams a reality!-Quit being afraid and


different than what you have had in the must quit doing what you

have done before and DO something different! JUST QUIT IT ... and START DOING

something to create the experience you want!

hmm. I can see the point on most of these. However, I do not agree with all of them. I think there is a proper time to "press on", despite feelings.

That's quite a list. but it sure does make one think, and maybe do some quitting.
