We’ve always heard that you don’t quit. Quitters are losers, they’re weak; they have no backbone….
I though, beg to differ. I think some quitting is exactly the right thing. Some quitters are winners; they are strong, brave, and tenacious; these quitters are not the ones that give up, but rather the ones that stand up. They stand up and say “ENOUGH! I won’t be pushed around, bossed around or tossed around for one more minute!” . They come out from their cave of depression, take off their sackcloth of shame, bathe in the water of freedom and self-acceptance and put on their new robe of strength and confidence. They have been beaten, degraded and lied to. And they believed it. They began to believe that their tormenters were right and that they deserved every ill word and disgusted glance; they begun to hate themselves. But deep in their hearts resonated the truth of their Father, that they –are- loved and so they are worthy of love; worthy of respect. And in that truth they found their strength to rise and fight back the demons, the snakes, the jackals; the liars.
I am one of these. I am a quitter. And I am a winner. I am a warrior. I have been beaten, crushed, bruised; I have been held down, but I refuse to stay down. I quit believing the lies. I quit believing that being a certain size, a certain weight, a certain way, would be the missing link to my happiness, my fulfillment. I quit hating myself because someone else can’t accept someone who is different and I quit punishing myself for being different instead of accepting the beauty of my Creator. I quit trying to conform to what “they” want, I quit vying for “their” acceptance and now only seek the approval of YAHUEH. I quit ruining my body with my drug of choice in order to avoid the pain. I quit being ashamed of who I am, I quit hiding from the world and I quit hiding from myself. I see now that I can’t truly start to be the incredible woman I was created to be until I quit.
1. To learn to see myself in a positive, loving light and to only speak about myself and to myself with positive, constructive language.
2. To befriend myself. To treat myself as I would a friend; with love, understanding, forgiveness.
3. To sing every single day.
4. To never let anyone, even myself, feel like I don’t belong somewhere.
5. To learn look in the mirror every day and smile.
6. To learn how to have a positive outlook; to stop complaining and learn to praise no matter what.
7. To never again say “I can’t.”
8. To never leave my house looking anything less than my best at that moment.
9. To carry myself the air of self-respect and self-confidence.
10. To treat my body like the temple of YAHUEH that it is and let Him dwell in it and shine through it.
I have many more, but I’m going to start here…
To quit every single day until I don't have to quit anymore.
