Looking back at the few blogs that I have done, I feel like maybe it’s all a little bit too serious and introspective. I do enjoy writing those more thoughtful pieces, but that isn’t the sole purpose of this blog, and I really want to have some fun in this space too!
It became very clear to me recently that I could no longer continue on the current path that I was on. A path of discontentment, self-doubt, and feeling less than when it came to what I did to earn a living. I always felt like I was letting myself down and I should be and do more, until I realized that none of what I was feeling or thinking was my truth.
I love using milestones to set goals, like my 20th high school reunion in 2013 and my 40th birthday one year ago. The problem is, in both cases, I pretty much missed them all. A year ago I was on the verge of turning 40. Instead of the sadness I thought I would feel hitting 40, I was actually excited about the year ahead.
Upon turning 40 earlier this year, I decided it was time to make changes in my life. I wanted to be as productive as possible but I was so exhausted at night, I usually ended up doing nothing but sitting and watching old TV reruns. So after reading a few different blog posts on the subject, I decided to start with my morning routine.
I’m writing this from my couch, trying rather unsuccessfully to find a comfortable sitting position in which to spend my Saturday. Because this is how we do Saturday night! A week ago, while assisting some of my fellow church tuition committee members in making noodles for our upcoming bazaar, it seems I tweaked something in my sciatic nerve. It’s been pretty painful ever since.
First, I want to thank you for stopping by and taking the time to check out my little corner of the internet! I’m really so glad you’re here! I’m not sure what you are supposed to write in your very first post, on a blog you’ve been planning for months, but I feel like it should be this big BANG! I guess I’ll just start with an introduction.
