It has taken me a week to have the time to sit down and write my first post. At the end of 2008 I realized that I have been dealing with the same problems and frustrations with bad habits, emotional baggage, relationship issues, etc. for about 10 years and in some cases - more. I complain, moan and groan, and occasionally feel sorry for myself (okay - maybe more than occasionally) without doing anything differently. Isn't that the definition of crazy? Crazy (adj.)Doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results. So I have decided - it is time for a change!!
I started the year out by finding a great therapist - who is already helping me to make positive, albeit scary, changes in my life - and I am running a 5K in April (gotta start somewhere) - which hopefully will lead to more positive health changes. I am no fool - I know that I can't turn my entire life around over night, but by the end of the year I should be able to show a little progress.
So maybe I am being self-indulgent in creating this blog about this year's journey, but quite honestly I know myself well enough to know that putting my intentions out into the cyber universe where my friends and family can see what I am thinking will help me to follow-through more than if I do it all on my own. (Plus I am hoping I will be able to reconnect or stay better connected with those near and dear to my heart.)
