The Season of Becoming

Blog Post created by Dancingthrulife_6.4.13 on Sep 12, 2016

~~Don't get stuck.  Move, travel, take a class, taske a risk.  There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness and this is neither.  This season is about becoming.  Don't lose yourself at Happy Hour but don't lose yourself on the corporate ladder, either.  Stop every once in a while and go out for coffee or crawl into bed with your journal.  Now is your time.  Walk closely with people you love.   Don't get stuck in the past and don't try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven't earned.  Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can and keep travelling honestly along life's path.~~  Unknown

When you come to EX, you find lots and lots of good quit smoking stuff.  Stuff about triggers, stuff about tracking, stuff about addiction.  And you get lots and lots of support.  Good support, kind support, and encouraging, wise support.  And you obtain lots and lots of good advice.  Read this.  Try this.  Remember this.

But what do you bring to the table?  Do you actually have a quit plan?  Have you made a list of coping skills?  Do you understand addiction?  Have you made that commitment to quit?

Or are you more here for information without the intent to quit right now?  Are you lonely and need a little attention but you haven't firmly decided that you will quit smoking?  Are you playing with the idea of quitting but simply want to gain a support system first?

We can give you lots.  But quitting?  It comes from you.  You alone.  Do not rely only on our words.  Do not rely only on us to be here to prop you up.  Do not rely on what worked for us to also work for you.

You are in for the ride of your life.  Exhilarating, liberating, and so very life changing!!  Because it comes from you.  You are about to embark on a journey where you lose nothing but find your voice, your power, your life.  Whatever is inside you, whatever you have stuffed inside while puffing away on the outside, is about to let loose with a warrior's intensity. 

The world has been waiting for you to find yourself....to let yourself shine....to come out from behind the curtain of smoke that cut you off from everything wild and wonderful!!  Don't be afraid, be excited!!  Life is about to unfold in a way you never imagined and it is going to be worth every pang of discomfort you first feel in your quit.

We give you the tools.  We applaud you.  We support and lift you.  But this is your show.  Your journey.  Your evolution.  I am proud be a very small part of something so vital to the person you are.  Your quit matters because you matter. 

A bit long winded today and I apologize.  I get carried away on the thrill of you finding yourself.....
