Day 62: An idea for Newbies...

I know I've posted this picture before, but there seem to be a lot of newcomers here on EX in the last week and I thought they might like to try a variation on this idea.

This is a little sign I made and wore on my uniform on the first day I quit smoking.  During a single day of flying, I have personal contact with hundreds of people on airplanes. (Each plane holds 130-250+ people and I sometimes fly up to four flights per day.  That's a LOT of people.)

I thought it would be fun to see what kind of reaction I would get from people, when I wore this little sign.

Wow, was I amazed!  On that very difficult first day, I got SO much positive feedback and much-needed reinforcement from passengers.  People said the most encouraging things and high-fived me as they boarded the plane.

ANYONE can do this.  Just make a cute little sign to wear or a bigger one to put on your desk.  And you don't have to put "today" on it, either.  Then you can keep using it during all of those first few days when you REALLY need the reinforcement that you are doing something wonderful for yourself.

Btw, if anyone does this, I would sure love to hear about the reaction you got...   XXXOOO
