Puff Goes My Resolution!
Jan 22 , 2016
Category: lifestyle

Although National Non-Smoking Week is over, there are remnants of it that, like puffs of smoke, linger long after it’s gone. For me, those remnants are in the form of the theme:


Quitting Takes Practice…Practice Often


While I am not a smoker, I find myself repeating those words over and over…and with a little practice, I pray that they will stick.


You see,  like many people this time of year, I reflect on trying to improve some aspect of myself that became buried under  yards of tulle, strings of indoor  lights, gift-hunting, over-indulging and everything else that we tend to frantically piece together to complete the Christmas puzzle.


But when I try to work toward  self-improvement under the January Resolution Ritual, I fail. Then I give it another go…then fail again…only to give in to the second or third fail, raise a white flag and whistle Doris Day’s Que Sera Sera.

 

Not this year.


I may  try-fail and try-fail again…but this time I won’t stop. At least that’s my resolution for this year….and if this time I’m successful, I have a whole lot of smokers to thank for the inspiration.
