You CAN Do Anything You Make Up Your Mind To Do

I thought I was doomed to be a smoker to the point I believed my last breath on this earth would end with an exhale of cigarette smoke. I had myself also believing that if I ate a healthy diet and exercised EVERY day, I could negate the bad effects of smoking. ….UNTIL a vascular surgeon apprised me differently. I successfully quit on my very first attempt – because I believed I had no other choice. I thought it through, got my tools together and made it happen! Wasn't easy, but I did it – 6+ years ago.

 

This morning I really wanted a veggie and cheese omelet. I thought it through, figured ways around my one-handed state, and began. I had to cover the hand end of the splint with a plastic bag to hold down the veggies and used a REALLY big serrated knife to cut them left-handed. The biggest challenge was getting a three egg omelet filled with spinach, spring onions, tomatoes, mushrooms and cheese (made enough for three breakfasts) out of the pan. BUT – I made it happen by sticking a second spatula into the end of the splint!!

 

You CAN quit smoking or make an omelet one-handed! You can do anything you make up your mind to do!
