Did you wake up happy today? Excited to have this day? Wondering what marvelous miracle was waiting for you?
Or did you wake up thinking about smoking? Either wanting a cigarette or wishing you could have one? Do you view your quit as a punishment?
Life doesn't quit no matter how we are feeling, what we are thinking, or how we are doing. And it goes by so quickly! Today will never come again....you can't replay yesterday or last year or 10 years ago. We just have....now.
And now is enough. Now I can sing or dance or hug or hop. I can thank or forgive or laugh. I can be the very best I've ever been or the very worst I ever was. And the very worst I ever was was being a smoker. Selfish, addicted, alone, and run by a little white stick of paper.
I'm a happier person as a non-smoker. And I wish you for to find that happy in you as well. That peace that comes from recovery. The joy that comes from finding the real you behind that curtain of smoke.
You are much more beautiful than you'll ever know as a smoker. You will shine, you will sparkle, you will feel sheer pleasure as an Ex. And don't worry if you aren't feeling that yet. It takes time. Use this time to find out who you are and what you want your world to consist of. It's a time of discovery...exploration...healing.
It's your life....choose to live it well.
