Being a Quitter

My name is Ashley and I'm a quitter. It isn't a quality I like in myself but it's there. Starting things is my favorite part of anything. The beginning is always the best part. Make a cleaning schedule and stick with it a few days. Diets usually last shorter than that. Washing my face before bed lasts about a night. Keeping my car clean about one good mess. It gets aggravating getting all hopped up on the thrill and watching it fizzle. I make the best excuses. The worst part is that when I start something new I believe I'll stick with it. Actually I don't even think about quitting when I start. I dream about my new thing and how it will make me happy. I'm sick of being a quitter. I am going to spend this week trying to finish everything I start. One week. That is my goal. No quitting for a whole week.

I'm giving myself 3 things that I will not quit at for a whole week. Is it funny that I want to quit writing this right now because I'm afraid of not finishing. Now on what to stay dedicated to...I gotta make it doable but not too easy. 

1. No Dr. Pepper until next Monday.

2. The book I'm reading Finished Being Fat. 

3. Going to wash my face and brush my teeth before bed every night (gosh that makes me sound like a kid).

I'll update you to let you know if I'm still a quitter or not.


  1. Love this post! Made me giggle because I'm the same way, however, I call myself a "great starter"...not so good at finishing stuff. Lots of unfinished projects around my house and I feel myself losing steam right now on a few. Good luck!! I'm trying to join the finishing club too... right there with ya!

  2. I'm the same way! I love starting new things but I'm a quitter. We need to make a no quit challenge! Maybe a blog series?

  3. I have the same problem sometimes; I start things and then don't finish strong.

  4. Ugh, I'm a quitter too. :( I never finish projects or goals that I start on! It's terrible!
