Lord have mercy, what a week. I had that wedding I attending and survived.... did not smoke. I had my furnace die on me and it's now 40 degrees in my house ….... did not smoke. I have a stepdaughter calling constantly for something for my mother-in-law …..... did not smoke. I have a boatload of work piling in and can't seem to get to it because the stepdaughter is constantly calling …..... did not smoke. A whole host of daily frustrations that go on around here....... did not smoke. Oh, I could have just gotten in my car and drive to a gas station somewhere in this town and bought a pack of cigarettes, light up and be back at ground zero. Is that 5 to 10 minutes of flame worth all that trouble? I think not. Why would I even entertain the thought of going back just to go through this again because I was upset/frustrated/depressed/sad/angry. Those things will never go away. They will always be there day in and day out because that's just life in general.
One thing we know is life is full of stress, frustration. It's important to learn how to react differently to the actions that we did for so many years, light up and puff our sorrows away. It's also important to look on the positive side instead of the negative. Check out Positive Affirmations for Success: You can take what you want and leave the rest.
