Quitting is for winners.

Or, rather, knowing when to quit is for winners.

I'm someone who wants to hang on to the familiar and comfortable for far longer than I should. Far past when its no longer serving me and I'm no longer serving it. 

I'm working on quitting this behavior, because it does not serve my goals.

There are other things that are no longer serving my growth or the long term ideas I have for my self and my family that I will most likely be quitting too..

But for now, in an attempt to clear out things to make room for new blessings, here is a list of things that I've been working on quitting.

  • Smoking every day. ( this has been going quite well.. I have only had a hand full of cigarettes in the last month, and I'm ok with that.)

  •  Doing ANYTHING out of a place of guilt.
  • Extra projects that can be put on the back burner while I get other plans into motion.
  • Taking blame that does not belong to me.

  • Using stability as an excuse to not grow and expand

What are you quitting to help you be a winner?


  1. I quit a person.

    1. <3 and it is HARD. you're doing great though.

  2. I don't know that I'm quitting anything but I really do need to quit doing anything out of a place of guilt. I do that far too often now.

  3. Sounds like an interesting, and challenging, journey of growth. Knowing when to quit is indeed an art. I'm a smoker, too--twenty-six years now. And no, I don't know when to quit :) Congratulations on your goal setting and your determination to follow through!

  4. I quit smoking November 2010 after smoking over a pack a day for 30 years. It was the hardest thing I've ever done. (and it's still hard sometimes) Good luck with all your efforts!

  5. Eating junk food or stuffing my face when I'm stressed/bored/tired/sad/mad/happy/whathaveyou.

  6. I'm not sure that I need to quit things - I feel like there's more that I need to get out and do. Maybe I need to quit getting over-emotional and upset about little things that don't really matter.
