This is How I Feel Today....

Too Much Work...
Not Enough Time!
Definetly Not Enough Appreciation!
Show me the Love!
Today I feel like this poor Pug must feel when thier owner dresses it up in funny clothing and puts it on parade for all to view at the doggie park! ANNOYED! Lets just say I cannot WAIT to get a new job! I am about to start the process and lots of things in my life changed since I quit smoking. I realized that not only could I help myself and improve my health by quitting smoking but I realized that I can really do anything I set my mind to! Lets just say that I can have better working conditons and a lot more respect elsewhere and instead of complaining about it, its time to move on! I do not have to stay in bad relationships with cigarettes, a bad employer, spouse or anyone or anything else for that matter! All I have to say for now is its amazing what happens when you quit one bad habits! Chantix started me on the path to quitting smoking and now I am making the decision to quit other things that are not working for me. Life is about choices and I do not choose to stay in a no win situation any longer than I have to. I am off to my Stop Smoking Support Group. Hope all is well with everyone out there in Chantix Blog Land.
Peace,
Diva

I hear you. Always have a new one before you leave the old one, and be careful what you say about all of it online ;) I do agree that quitting smoking has also reminded me that it's my life to live and decide how I want to live it and what's best for me. Such a nice empowering bonus on top of something already so good!

Yep, I am definetly in gag mode about my job and basically just using the "I'm looking for new challenges and opportunities" phrase to discuss my departure. Are you looking also? Do you teach out there or do something else? I know you taught in Japan thats the only reason I am asking.
Peace,
Diva

You are right, it is amazing how much power you relinquish when you smoke and then how much you gain back when you quit. We are all capable of so much more if we really want it.
Sounds to me like you are moving forward and realizing a great deal about yourself.
HURRAH FOR DIVA!!!
