I dedicate this first post to my friend, Trish. She is the one that suggested and I blog because of my unique point of view. I told her that I was far too undisciplined for the endeavor, but after I gave it some thought I realized that I probably need a little discipline.
Since I left the working world in 2004, I have been in a rowboat with only one oar. I just drift aimlessly most of the time and when I want to head in a particular direction, I go around in circles never getting anywhere. My life is no longer linear as it was when I was working. It used to be that I always had some sort of goal, to make it to lunch, to the end of the day, to the end of the week, etc. I don't have that momentum anymore and I have to constantly remember to allow my husband some downtime when he comes home from work.
So, I will treat this new activity as a kind of therapy and see what happens. Stay tuned.
