I Quit!

Post by GirlSaturday on Thu Sep 24, 2009 12:38 pm

Have YOU????

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 secrets!

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 change, no one really wants to hear it, try getting on with enjoying your life!

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 quit...eat 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 START LIVING YOUR LIFE! CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT! If you want something different than what you have had in the past...you 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!

Thanks.

I can't take credit for these pearls of wisdom. I received them from a friend.

Sometimes we all need to get that jolt of energy when feeling in a rut.

I agree, it's excellent advice. Especially the job part idk how many times I cried and made myself physically sick about this one job I hated that made me so miserable for too long until one day I had enough and quit and it was the best decision I ever made, I swear i'd be in a straight jacket now if I hadn't done this. Life is what you make of it and sitting around and crying won't fix the problem!

Great words GirlSaturday! Thank you! And while we're on the subject, I'd like to add something, if you don't mind....Reading your post remembered me of this...

We have time for all.
To sleep, to ran right and left,
To regret what we did wrong and to wrong again
to judge others and to absolve ourselves
we have time to read and write,
to correct what we wrote, you regret what we wrote,
we have time to do projects and not respect them,
have time to make illusions and rummage through their ashes later.
We have time for ambitions and diseases,
to blamed fate and the details,
we have time to look at clouds, ads or any one accident,
we have time to exorcise our questions and to postpone the answers,
we have time to shatter a dream and then reinvent it,
we have time to make friends and to loose them,
we have time to receive lessons and forget them after,
we have time to receive gifts and not understand them.
We have time for all.
No time just for a little tenderness.
When we get to that - we die.
I learned some things in life that I want to share with you too!
I learned that you can not make someone love you
All you can do is to be worthy of loving.
The rest ... depends on others.
I learned that no matter how much I would care
Others might not.
I learned that it takes years to earn confidence
And that in only a few seconds you could lose it
I learned that it doesn't matter WHAT you have in life
But WHO you have in your life.
I learned that you can do well and be helped by your charm
for about 15 minutes
After that, however, you'd better know something.
I learned that you should not compare yourself
with what others can do better
But what can you do better
I learned that it doesn't matter what bad things happen to people
But matters what I can do to solve them
I learned that no matter how you cut
Everything has two sides
I learned that you must part with your loved ones with warm words
It could be the last time you see them
I learned that you can keep on going for a long time
Even after you said you can not go anymore.
I have learned that heroes are those do what's right, when it's right
Whatever the consequences
I learned that there are people who love you
But don't know how to show it.
I learned that when I'm angry I have the right to be angry
But I have no right to be mean.
I have learned that true friendship continues to exist even at distance
And that goes for true love too.
I learned that if someone does not love you as you wish
It doesn't mean that he doesn't love you with all his heart.
I learned that no matter how good of a friend someone is to you
He will still hurt you from time to time
And you must forgive him for that.
I learned that it is not always enough to be forgiven by others
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself
I learned that no matter how much you are suffering,
The world will not stop for your grief.
I learned that background and circumstances may influence your personality
But that YOU are responsible for what you become
I learned that if two people argue,
it does not mean that they don't love each other.
And also, that lack of argument does not prove that they love each other.
I learned that sometimes you have to put the person first
And not his actions
I learned that two people can look at the same thing
And see something totally different
I learned that regardless of consequences
Those who are honest with themselves get farther in life
I learned that your life can be changed in a few hours
By people who did not know you.
I learned that when you think you got nothing left to give
When a friend calls you, you will find the strength to help.
I learned that writing
As well as speech
Can soothe the soul pain
I learned that the people you love the most
Are taken away too soon ...
I learned that it is too hard to tell
Where to draw the line between being friendly, not to hurt people and support your views.
I learned to love
So I can be loved.

Re: I Quit!

Post by mommy on Fri Sep 25, 2009 7:41 am

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering
experience…I will dispense this advice now. Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before
you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you
imagine. Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
on some idle Tuesday. Do one thing everyday that scares you Sing Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with
people who are reckless with yours. Floss Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with
yourself. Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you
succeed in doing this, tell me how. Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements. Stretch Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your
life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they
wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year
olds I know still don’t. Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone. Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe
you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body,
use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever
own.. Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room. Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them. Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly. Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for
good. Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future. Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you
should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and
lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you
knew when you were young. Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live
in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft. Travel. Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will
philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize
that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were
noble and children respected their elders. Respect your elders. Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund,
maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
might run out. Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will
look 85. Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the
ugly parts and recycling it for more than
it’s worth. But trust me on the sunscreen

Ilove that song
