Hello Darkness My Old Friend--Really?

"HELLO DARKNESS MY OLD FRIEND"
I'VE COME TO TALK WITH YOU AGAIN."

The words are from the classic song: "Sounds of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkle.

I have but ONE thing to say to you: Darkness!
…::I am FOREVER DONE WITH YOU! …::
…::You were never my friend. …..:::
You lurked in the shadows. You tempted me with things that looked good.
Some even made me feel good. You knew they would cause pain. Even kill me.

…..:::But I have grown wise to you.
….::You can stay in the darkness.
You are not my friend. You had nothing good to offer.

Yes, I have walked away from bad habits and even addictions.
I admit to once smoking cigarettes, but stopped when I met my husband, over
40 years ago! ..I also stopped taking nightly tranquilizers at that time.
Alcohol has not touched my lips in approximately 25 years!
I stopped drinking diet colas and avoid sugar!

Since I stopped all the bad habits and addictions, this is what I have gained:
I no longer get a yearly horrible cold that always resulted in bronchitis.
.........…:::My immune system is stronger.
…….….:::I only take one mild medication.
I no longer need meds for high blood pressure. (over three years now)
I had not one but TWO gals-one a nurse, tell me, 'You look much younger than you are, and I hope I look as good as you when I am your age."

I genuinely "feel" happy; I have a good outlook and love life!
Freedom feels so good!



Thanks for stopping by to read friends and have a great day!
And a very special thanks to Sparks and the community of supportive
friends and members like you, who only enhanced my journey the past
6.5 years!.. I could not have done it alone!
