I Quit Too

What did those two words, "I Quit" mean to you, when you first read them?  How did they make you feel? What did you think the moment you read them? What did you want to do or say? What did they say to you, about me?

Some of you wrote comments on this site, while others called me and or posted on facebook.  I heard things like," quit is a four letter word, you can't quit we need you, you didn't strike me as a quitter, just because we don't comment doesn't mean we don't care." These were just a few of the many responses I received. So how do you think others feel when you say, "I quit?" There may not be a forum to post their feelings but I will say it for them.

"We don't want you to ever quit."
"You don't strike us as a quitter."
"We know it's a lot of work but you do make a difference."
"Don't stop now!"
"We need you."

We all get tired and we all wonder from time to time, whether what we are doing is worth it. We want to make a colossal splash in the pool of life, doing what we do. Remember it's like throwing a pebble into a pound, the ripples however small, move out and have their effects in ways we will never know. So no matter how little of a difference you may think that you make, you make a difference. Even if it is only for one person, that one person needs you and you must never quit.

PS "I never said anything about quitting Daily Dumbbells"
