Good morning, fellow Ex'ers. Just my Saturday blog to check out a few sites on here for you newbies and for us oldies but goodies on here. Sometimes a little reminder doesn't hurt. Glad to see new people signing up again. I'm looking forward to see that freedom train with a huge list of quitters to celebrate. Of course once we quit, it's a celebration all onto itself. If I counted right, I should have 300 days in on my birthday this month. If you don't believe there's a reason for everything, I think that's pretty neat it falls that way. If you stay committed, stay the course, ride out the rough waves and stick with it, you'll do just fine. Just resolve yourself to accept that that's just something that you don't do anymore.
We know is life is full of stress, frustration, in my case bewilderment. It's important to learn how to react differently to the actions that we did for so many years, light up and puff our problems 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. And you can always find and contribute your own.
