I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. There’s always going to be somewhere to improve; some circumstance to better; some fat to lose. January 1, 2013 was no different in that regard. But for the first time for as far back as I can remember, this New Year’s has stirred inside me a curious sense of impending change. And change is good… no, change is glorious… especially when you’ve been painfully searching for it for what seems like years.
I have a strong feeling that the change I’ve desired is somehow related to the words I’m able to release. So this blog is my long overdue (just ask my wife) attempt at creating change and realizing peace. This blog is not a resolution, but rather a promise to myself to actively pursue the change I desire, one word at a time, one day at a time, each day of 2013. Kind of like a promise for the New Year. Or like a resolution.
I do this without a promise of great prose, or a promise that all entries will be worth reading. Just a promise to bring the inside out; to help me examine the seemingly mundane moments that make up each day in order to bring about a deeper appreciation for each moment I’m allowed. After all, there’s so much to be thankful for. So much more to life that we just pass by every day without a second glance. Perhaps taking a closer look at those moments will change my perspective… maybe even your perspective… who knows.
I’m ready. I hope you are too. On to Twenty-Thirteen.
