I have tried to quit before but always fell off the wagon. This time was different, the last binge did it for me. I ate two (YES, TWO!) jars of Nutella in one sitting.

You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. “So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. “Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. “Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” ― Neil Gaiman
