~~If you walk in the footsteps of a stranger, you'll learn things you never knew.~~ Pocahontas (1995)
It's fun to come here and connect with friends. I've 'known' some of these magnificent people here for well over 6 years and if we ever did meet, I'm sure it would be like coming home
But when I write, I write for those I haven't 'met'. I write for the ones who are struggling with their quits. The ones who haven't yet quit. The ones who wish they could but think they can't.
I don't know if I reach them. I guess there is no good way to know, right?
So I thought maybe if I introduced myself and let you know who I am, you would feel more comfortable reading my posts and believing that I want you to succeed. I'll even try to throw in some pictures
Here I am in all my roller skating glory My youngest grandson turned one and we are at his birthday party. I love, love, love to skate and finally had the opportunity to get out there. I've learned to never pass up the opportunity to do what you love. Live life with no regrets
My oldest granddaughter is learning to skate, my now one year old grandson is 'dancing' to the music I am carrying my daughter-in-law's purse, as well. Never not willing to help
My only child still left at home Jake is not easily embarrassed by his mom but I try on a daily basis to turn his face red. He is as talented as he is kind and I adore him.
Ok, enough pictures for today. For you new quitters and wannabe quitters, please know I am harmless, somewhat creative, and a totally quitter I can share what I know, I can encourage the beejeezes out of you, and I am strong enough to help carry you when you don't think you can go on. Quitting is all about recognizing that addiction is all in your mind and YOU control your mind. Together, we can get you on the road to recovery!!
