Good Beautiful Sunday Everybody!
Well after all that partying last night I'm still up with the larks this morning and what a beautiful morning it is! The sun has finally arrived in Sheffield It's an exciting day for Sheffield actually as Sheffield Utd and their fans head to Wembley for the semi-final of the FA Cup against Hull City so COME ON YOU BLADES!!!
It's also a fantastic day for watching thousands of inspirational people take to the streets for the London Marathon, most of them for charity. It's those runners in the costumes who get me, how can they run for 26 miles when they are dressed as a gorilla? it's just amazing! I wonder if I'll feel less breathless today when I'm watching that!
Finally, it's a great day to be a non-smoker! Actually every day is a great day to be a non-smoker To all you newbies who are just thinking about or have even taken the first steps on this journey I promise you that today I woke up feeling absolutely fantastic -it really is worth going through the start of the journey to get to feel like this and I'm only on day 21! Yes there have been good days before, but today is not just about happiness and excitement - it's really about contentment. The stress of being a smoker has gone, the stress of giving up smoking has gone, I actually feel at peace with it all and that is a wonderful place to be. I am convinced I can now handle this and I know there will be more challenges to come, but I've got this now. I'm saying this now, because this is exactly what I wanted to know when I started out on this journey. So don't hesitate, make your plan, set your quit date and just do it, it really is worth it! And if I can do it, everyone can!
Have a truly fabulous day
