~~Today is a new day! Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest. In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change. Do not let your today be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future. Today is a new day!~~ Steve Maraboli
I love to come here and read how someone who relapsed yesterday is full of hope for today!! I love how a new quitter posts that he/she can do this and won't allow nicotine to steal another day! I love how elders support those who need a friend or simply advice.
Ok, so there isn't much I don't love about this site It allows you to be who you are....positive and hopeful or stressed and depressed...while guiding you to a successful quit. People find forever friends here. People find their health. People find...well...themselves!!
Because smoking is something you did. Even if it is over and over again. Even if it's addiction. Smoking has never been who you are. Seems logical but I think sometimes we forget that because smoking takes up so much of our time and quitting even more. It becomes the center point of our lives. But it's only something we did.
You are so much more than that. You are talent and adventure and exploration and joy. You are faith and courage and strength and integrity. You are life.
Take this day which will never come again and just be present in it. Enjoy it, work through it, breathe it, live it. Let yesterday remain in yesterday. Let tomorrow be in tomorrow. Just live today and feel today and let it be enough. And remember through it that you are more than a smoker. Or a quitter. You are life.
