By nature, I am not a quitter. I will relentlessly look for solutions. I pride myself in being resilient. I hang on, at times beyond reason, when everyone else would give up, call it a day, say goodbye.
This my friends, might all at once be my greatest strength and my greatest weakness. It all depends on the situation. It kind of depends on who you ask too.
That being said I uncharacteristically quit my part-time job today. The truth is that I was miserable, disgruntled and under no uncertain terms, a huge downer when it came to that job. I was selling my free time and in essence, a part of my happiness, for a few spare bucks. Not exactly a fair trade if you ask me. It was a resignation that was a long time coming and no matter how hard I tried to convince myself to get past all the unsatisfying things about it I just couldn't do it. Not for one more stinkin' day.
So that's it. I walked away. And I feel relieved. Sure I might have a little less cash to play with but I will also have my time and a little piece of my sanity instead. Now that's the kind of deal that I'm a little more comfortable with!
And now that I think about it, being a quitter kinda kicks ass!
So tell me, what have you quit and felt great about
