So I read a lot of blogs. Who doesn't?
I internalize them, especially if they make me experience an emotional reaction.
Enter Natalie Whipple. You may or may not have seen her around. I kinda like her. She's smart. Funny. Photogenic.
We party sometimes.
But this post made me go all emo.
Trust me, I've thought about quitting. Many times. Yesterday even. Generally, in life, I'm a quitter. I quit exercising about two years ago. I quit brushing my teeth for years while I was in high school. I quit playing soccer when I didn't make the high school team. I've quit several jobs in my past.
Yeah, I'm a quitter.
So here's the next thing I'm going to quit: comparing myself, my writing, my goals and my life to someone else's.
And then: I'm going to quit beating myself up because my writing isn't perfect.
Finally, I'm going to quit wishing for something, and work for it instead.
Who's with me?
What do you need to quit doing? Why is quitting sometimes so easy (exercising) and sometimes so dang hard (biting my fingernails)? Riddle me that, quitters!
