I thought this was a pretty cool thing. I know that for me, forgiving those that haven't wanted it has gone a long way to making me a bit less crazy and angry and bitter, which is a good thing. I started working on this when Travis and I got married, trying to let go of my demons, and I think it mostly worked out pretty well. I'm still a hard ass on a few things but my world is a better place.
Today is day 4 of my Coke-free week. BOY do I want a coke.
