These pictures were taken two years ago for an ad for our company. We were supposed to project our real personalities and the stylist had a field day rocking me out. That is after all, who I am, or at least what the world perceives me to be.
A much-needed prop is the cigarette because I used to be a smoker. Yup, used to. I quit exactly a year ago without the help of an e-cig or a nicotine patch --just will power and a lot of help from real-life and blog friends.
The first five months were difficult as it came with the grumpies, some spells of depression and extra poundage (the last I couldn’t quite shake off). But now I feel so much better, I smell so much better and I think I look better, too.
I used to have a long list of new year’s resolutions. Last year, I decided to make it short but supremely ambitious. It paid off big time and that’s why it deserves to be my first grateful post for the year.
If you haven’t made your new year’s resolutions, it’s never too late to make one. Believe and it shall happen. Cheers, 2012!
