I quit. I Quit. I Quit!! That’s it!
I am emotionally drained. Mentally Stressed. Physically Tired..
That’s how my draft post started out on August 24. Fortunately, I did not publish it, make it permanent. I am not sure what glimpse of hope appeared – or if there was. What I do know is I kept going.
Why I Can’t Wait For the Rain To Stop
|In August of this year I joined a group called ATAMI in their Christian writing division. The leader, Minister Debby, told the group about a community blog initiative with Heritage Media. I officially became a community blogger on December 1, about a month post inquiry. Because of this connection, I found out about available intern positions. Last Friday, I was hired as an Intern to work with James Dickson for the Education beat in the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti area. I start a rigorous 8-week assignment January 2, 2012. I am so glad that I didn’t let my negative self talk keep me from inquiry.|
Finally, the reason I can’t quit is because there are too many people believing in me. Too many people that have invested energy and support. My failure would make as many people happy as my success would, so I choose success. What are the directions to success? I am not exactly sure so I will keep inching along forward and stop and pray for guidance if I get off track.
Love it! Go Leslie..you are an amazing inspiration!
Thank you so much! I really appreciate the feedback. To inspire somebody is probably one of the most important things a person can do. And, your comments have inspired me this morning!
Les, you rock! I am inspired.
Glad to hear it!
This is such an encouraging story. It is always so much easier for us to say we quit, but when you look at it from the perspectives you have you realize giving up is not an option. wishing you much success in your quest to greatness!
