I Believe in Quitting
All I can say is: Wow!
This piece on quitting is one of the most powerful statements of personal growth and transformation I have read in a long time. Thank you, Therese Borchard and Drama Queen, for putting this out there.
What resonated with me was the message that with awareness we really can build a life that is ours. That we can empower ourselves, but that it doesn’t come cheap. The process sometimes requires hitting bottom, sacrifice, sometimes painful choices. But while it may be an imperfect life, it is ours.
Downtime is just as important as all my self-improvement activities, and can ultimately lead to renewed creativity and innovation.
