Oh the morning ritual of waking up and getting things down before running out the door to start the workweek. no smoking here nor there as it got me no where except sick. My strength and motivation has pulled me through the obstacles that I face to this point and continue to see in my future. Being a non-smoker has its rewards but I had to have the battle scars first to understand what I put myself through. May we all find our inner strength to keep us going and have a great day. The world not perfect and either am I but I like me for who I am. Strength is one of my shields that keeps me going and not fall backwards. I may not pledge every day but there is no burning stick between my fingers. Time to get ready to face the day.
