Something to think about!

It's so amusing to hear the comments regarding quotes. Most people seem to enjoy them, find encouragement, inspiration or a moment of laughter...of which I find very satisfying. But my daughter gave me the greatest compliment (although I'm sure that's not what she intended!) She said to her brother & sister-in-law "Have you seen Mom's blog yet? She sounds like a greeting card!" Then proceeded to go through and read some of the blogs (well quotes) out loud! I so happen to enjoy greeting cards, at least most of them, so thank you Christine!

So...not to disappoint anyone...I will leave you all with this very ponderous quote to chew on!!!

I thought a thought.
But the thought I thought wasn't the thought that I thought.
If the thought I thought I thought had been the thought I thought,
I wouldn't have thought that much!

Now, go take on the day!

........31 Days and Still Counting

It's been awhile since I've updated my progress on smoking, and from the title I'm sure you've noticed it's been 31 days since I've quit! Yee-haw, a month!!
While I can say it's not always been easy, I can also say it's been easier than I thought it would be! Contradictory, you might think? Actually, no. The hard times have been truly hard, but very short-lived, easy to distract myself from...and easier, because I really thought this 25+ year addiction was my ruler, but instead, discovered that I'm the ruler!!
It's nice to know that when I needed to be strong & courageous, I could be just that! To believe in oneself is very empowering!
Thank you to all who believed in me...who already knew I was strong & courageous. Keep on believing and supporting me....this fight ain't over yet!!
