Gift of Love

This is lengthy because there is so much to say about this Elder  One thing for sure she keeps it REAL.   Open, personal, and compassionate so others feel they are not alone.  Her input causes one to think deeper.  She is very grateful for the freedom of living life without nicotine and is willing to share her gift with love.  She is very proud of her Christian faith and Native American heritage.    Her emphasizes on living life on life terms without nicotine is as real as real can get.  Her motto is Love, Peace, and Joy.  It appears that this phrase was originated by her. 

"take what you can use and leave the rest". indingrl.01.06.2011 

 

Her profound quote :

“if you always do what you've always done you'll always get what you always got”  

 

I could write a lot about indingrl.01.06.2011 but I decided to use the words of another Elder, who said it best.

"Take what you need and leave the rest."  These were your words, written on your own blog. I found them exactly when I needed them, at a vulnerable moment early in my quit when someone's comment hurt my feelings. Your words made me stronger. Look around this community and you will see those words everywhere, spoken by all of us. I heard them first from you.  You are a true friend, with a true heart, who has given much to my quit over many years. You are an important member of this community. You have tolerated my noise, and I have tolerated yours. Let's do it some more".c2q 

 Her give and take-on give and take

"Beginning this very NOW moment what have you given to the next suffering nicotine addict.......facts about nicotine.... books to read about nicotine.... expert advice of research tests reports to read... these are ALL good POINTERS .... yet in remembering what YOU use to be like in EARLY withdrawal  from nicotine.... are you giving what was given to you.... HOPE  and LOVE".

Compassion for others

"I am NOT alone.....everyone has troubles.... deaths...sicknesses...no gas money...NEW thinking ....come here to regroup....get through the rest of the afternoon by reading the blogs someone is always hurting more and SUFFERING more than ME".
"NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF OVER YOU! I think of others and pray for them.... NEW MINDSET.... thinking of others instead of playing the OLD STINKING THINKING reminiscing OLD TAPE OF SELFISHNESS THAT THINKS ME AND MY DRUG NICOTINE".

BottomLine and Really Keeping it Real
