It's officially been one year since I began breathing free . . . I am really proud of how far I've come, and so thankful every day that I stuck with the program, and didn't cheat — especially in the beginning when it would have been the easiest — when I was using the nicotine patches. I was such a hard core nicotine addict, and a habit I didn't think I could ever overcome. Here's to the power of positive thinking — and realizing that I'm so much stronger than that cigarette.
My Christmas cards are almost done and I will be sending them out today or tomorrow at the latest.
All of the outdoor decorations went up yesterday. Glad that's done and I can mark that off my list.
Feeling a little melancholy, and trying to go with what I'm feeling and realizing why I feel that way, but don't want to get stuck here. Trying to focus on the quote: Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
One more final to go in Drawing class tomorrow from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and then the fall semester of 2008 is officially over. Where did the time go?
