I have been so stressed out lately. I need to get over it, already! Right now, my goal is to write a coherent blog.
On Tuesday, I will have been a nonsmoker for three full weeks. I haven’t exactly suffered the kind of withdrawals I feared, and thank heaven I don’t feel the need to pig out, so I haven’t gained any weight, either. Still, I’m wound pretty tightly. Feeling overwhelmed, etc. I’ll feel better soon–I keep telling myself that.
One thing is for sure. I won’t be going back to the habit. I like breathing more easily, and I’m following my own advice. I’m always telling new writers that if you want to do something well, you have to be willing to do it badly for a while. With smoking, I’m willing to endure some rough days in order to have a longer, healthier life. And I still have a lot to do! Stories to tell, animals to look after, pictures to paint.
Is this blog coherent? I still can’t tell.
Oh, well. I’ll keep showing up if you will.
Have a wonderful weekend.
