I originally restart this in Blogspot, but after some reading, I removed that one and restarted it here.
So I had a blog and it had been up for a long time. I sort of lost direction and it lost purpose. At one point I registered my own domain name and I moved the blog over there. It was beautiful, but it got no real traffic. I also re-purposed the domain and deleted the blog. Idiot me, I forgot to download the latest posts, so I lost 6 months worth of stuff.
Ah well, it was time to start over again. I have new direction in my life and I have a new purpose. There have been some major changes since I am no loner with a job I had for almost 20 years. There is an internal argument going on in my head whether or not it was the perfect time to go and whether or not I had overstayed my welcome even though things had been going well until almost the very end. One thing is for sure, the level of stress I felt is a lot less. If it makes any sense, there is an uptick in my anxiety, but I feel that those are two distinctly different things. I know what was causing my stress and I currently know what is causing my anxiety, but even with that, if it makes any sense at all, I feel little stress. Despite the anxiety, I am happier now then I was.
I don’t have a plan for this new blog. Just whatever comes to mind. Things I enjoy, family moments, opinions, random thoughts and the occasional repost of something.
I am reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The first is Be Proactive. I like to think I was always the proactive sort, but the truth is I spent most of my life letting things happen to me. It is time I made some things happen. I have no idea how to do that, but life doesn’t come with an owners manual now, does it?
