Yesterday was a very rough day at work. I was over-whelmed and received little support and in fact had someone who I had just asked for assistance (I would have appreciated even 30 minutes) then ask what I had done for HIM.
As rough as yesterday was I didn't turn to my standby of soda. When I got to stressed I walked to the bathroom or went to visit someone I needed information from instead of sending an e-mail or IM. Even last night (which is an easy time for me to fall off the wagon) I found healthier ways to deal with my stress (maybe not the best but healthier).
Today I woke up and realized it was a brand new day. I have a fresh start. I saw a quote this morning (don't remember where or by who and roughly paraphrased) that says don't let yesterdays difficulties impact your fresh start. It made me feel so much better.
It might seem a small victory but it was a victory for me.
