I have to admit my goals were not obtained during 2012 (the last time I wrote a post on this blog). No excuses. Laziness may be to blame (probably is). Or maybe it was simply a lack of focus.
Then came 2013…kind of a wash. Not a wash in a bad way. Actually, a wash in a good way. My wife and I welcomed our first child. A son. So, 2013…also a wash as I was preoccupied with my wife and son. He’s fantastic…he brings a smile to my face just thinking about him. If you saw him, he would bring a smile to your face as well. I promise.
Anyway, so that little intro brings us to the present. Life has happened. Goals have slipped. And here we are. Or here I am. The goals I had back then have not left me. They are still burning. To be honest, they are more prevalent then they were before. However, I am in a different place now. A slightly more challenging place. More responsibility. More stress. More… Do I listen to my heart…or do I continue to follow the “practical path”. It’s a tough call…especially when you have others depending on you. I don’t know where I will go. All I know is where I am now. I love my family. I love my wife. I love my son. I love my pets. I love my life. I am optimistic about the future. I am just in a transition. And scared. I don’t know where life will take me from here. However, I do know that life will take me where I need to be. To support my wife. To support my son. To care for my pets. To be there for and support my friends. Those are the most important roles I will play in this lifetime.
I am going to try to write more. I love to write. I love to think. I love to express my thoughts. I love to be able to capture life and reflect. Hopefully, you are interested in what I have to say and can share in this journey. I would love to hear your thoughts. What are your struggles? What are your triumphs? Life is challenging and exciting at the same time. Life is a different journey for everyone. However, I think we all learn something from one another. And I love that.
