A Small Personal Triumph

For as long as I remember, I have had the nervous habit of biting my fingernails. For years, Deb was after me to stop biting them and about five years back, I made myself a New Year’s resolution to stop.

Slowly, but surely, I have stopped, almost a finger at a time. About two years ago, I managed to keep away from the eight fingers. Sometime in the last year, it was down to one thumb.

I noticed on the cruise ship the second thumb needed a trim. I appear to have finally conquered this habit.

Of course, now I just need to develop the habit of knowing when to trim them. According to Deb and Kate, I overcompensate and let them grow too long. But hey, this is still somewhat new to me.

Still, I will take this small victory of Will Power.
