No Preamble Needed
I’m so glad you joined me, but I must let you know up front that this is for me. I need to see these words in print to keep moving.
I have fallen short of projected commitments, goals, and visions. I have reasons, excuses, or whatever else you want to call them. But not one is enough to change the course of my actions, or lack thereof.
So without further ado, I’m moving forward and I hope you’ll join me as I attempt to put some sense of consistency back into the pages of this site.
Months, or maybe years, have passed since I attempted to put pen to paper. In all honesty, I haven’t had much to say. It’s been a year almost since my kids went to brick and mortar school, I lost my father, and life as we know it changed. Some for the better and some, plenty actually, for the worse.
Grief is tricky. It floods. It subsides. And, when you least expect it, you’re drenched in its trenches yet again. I understand we never “get over” loss. Instead, we simply learn to live differently. Hopefully that means we are still capable of smiles and laughter and are eventually in the position to thrive again fully. And the hole left by loss is, overtime, filled with fondness and peace. But in the meantime… it just takes time.
Anyhow, I’m not here really to share my grief, but to start anew. I need vision, I need words, and I need focus. Hopefully I can share some of my thoughts here with you.
Perhaps you’re like me. Maybe your world got flipped upside down and you haven’t yet gotten your footing. Maybe you need a kickstart, but no matter how you try, you can’t make it stick. I hear you and I understand.
So, what do we do? We meet us where we are by acknowledging who we are today, assessing if our past values are in sync with our current ideals, and continuing to cultivate authenticity.
Let’s do this.
Cheers to a fresh start!
