Magpie Tales-Resolutions


I gave up
Thinking and started doing
I gave up
Doubting myself and took a risk
I gave up
Living in silence and anger
Choosing laughter and love
Started looking at the horizon
Found out what I was made of
What was true
What was real
For me
For you
I gave up
Not being me
I am new.

and yes, I gave up cigarettes too!! Happy New Year to all and thanks to Tess for  The Mag and the inspiration!!

"Found out what I was made of." Yes, that's always a good thing. Something one typically stumbles upon accidentally or is forced into doing. But beneficial in the end.

I love this. I'm so in awe of anyone that gives up cigarettes because I was a smoker, too, and know how powerful that draw is.
