IWSG June 7th Question: Did You Ever Say “I Quit”?

If there is no struggle, there is no progress.
~ Frederick Douglass ~

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
~ Romans 8:28 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well and you’re keeping the faith. (wink) I’m just a bit late for the first Wednesday of the month. Alex, may I get a C for effort? (wink)

IWSG Day Question: Did you ever say “I quit”? If so, what happened to make you come back to writing?

Yes, the words, I quit, I’m DONE have left my mouth many times. Frustrations and struggles. Not enough time. Things that mount up to distractions. I believe these things serve a purpose.

Walking away, has been a form of quitting for me. Timing is everything. Self-encouragement helps. Refocus is key. Sometimes, its just a schism……

I quit, and I always come back. (smile)

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just does everything by faith. Enjoy your blessed weekend.

That is so true that sometimes walking away can be a form of quitting. And then we come back to it, eventually, one day. Thanks for sticking with it and for sharing your struggles.

No worries! I give you a B.
Sometimes we need to walk away and put some distance between us and writing. I believe it’s called balance.
Have a great weekend!
