Sometimes you have to know when to quit.
For the most part, the only quitting I usually do is on a book that is no longer sparking my interest. I mean, if I start treating the book like it's a chore to read, then I should just stop. That's how most kids get turned away from reading - because they're forced to read books for school and it becomes a chore.
But there are other times in life when we have to quit - a job, a sport, a habit. Though I've only ever had to quit a few sports because I was doing too many at one time as a kid. I had to choose between soccer, football, baseball, and hockey. I like playing all four sports, but I only really enjoyed playing soccer and baseball competitively. So I dropped football and hockey and stuck with soccer and baseball, but I did finally drop baseball when I started high school.
I know in the future I'll have times when I have to quit a job because I'll move on to something better, just like my parents have done in the past. After all, that's the reason we moved from Washington to Vermont. And there might even come a day when I quit blogging, though that won't be for a while.
My question for you today is: have you ever had to quit something before?
