~~And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust in the magic of beginnings.~~ Meister Eckhart
I know you're out there.....reading blogs, rummaging through forums, wondering about Allen Carr. You are hesitant to say anything here....maybe because it will make quitting real, maybe you don't want to commit yourself, or maybe you just don't know how to navigate this site. I know you're there though.
Because I used to be you. I was hesitant, I didn't want to commit myself to quitting, and I definitely didn't know how to nagivate anything :) Yep, I was there. Right where you are now. You may be looking at these quit dates thinking you will never be able to make 600 days or even 100 days. You may be thinking that no one knows how hard your life is. How difficult it will be for you to be without cigarettes. Guess what? Been there as well.
But now I know better. And so will you! You will finally realize that it's ok to trust in yourself....to trust in the magic of beginnings. And you will know it's better to jump right in rather than stick a toe in here and there. And you will find out that it doesn't have to be this HUGE weight around your neck. And you will learn so much more about all the good in you....the strength, the courage, the humor, the sheer brilliance of you....than you ever know existed.
And then, one day, you will be writing these words to those out there reading, rummaging, and wondering. And you will give them hope. And you will give them knowledge. And you will share your joy with them. Because you used to be them. And as you write these words, you will be smiling because you know.....you trusted in the magic of beginnings.
