It has been over 2 months now since I quit smoking cigarettes, since I let go of a toxic friend and since I first started feeling a true sense of hope and optimism for the future. Now that a new year has begun, I have nothing but positive thoughts and I have many goals in which I plan to achieve this year. Sure I have random sad thoughts and times when I can feel my heart still aching, but I can push those bad feelings away because I know how important it is to stay positive. After all, how could I love someone else and share my life with him if I dont love myself? Im learning about myself and im making changes in order to become a better person; to become someone good enough for him. I can only pray that I end up happy and I have to keep pushing myself and keep trying no matter what. I am strong enough. I can do it.
