So, ehem, welcome. This is my blog.
I use blogs for two reasons; to hold myself accountable and to make believe people find me interesting.
The last blog in which I consistently wrote was a blog that held me accountable to training for and running a half marathon. That’s 13.1 miles, yo. I cried at mile 9. I almost shit my pants at mile 11. And I figuratively shit my pants when I crossed the finish line.
But I did it.
And just as I had felt completely overwhelmed and drastically under qualified on week 2 of 20 training weeks, I feel the exact same way today. About life. Which is a much longer (here’s hoping!) marathon.
But I am having a lot of trouble relaxing in to my own groove.
I am having a lot of trouble believing in myself.
I am having a lot of trouble focusing on and appreciating each time my foot hits the pavement in front of me.
I am too busy focusing on everything else.
I am not focusing on what is important: Am I happy?
So, here I am. I am back to the almighty blog, begging for guidance and public judgment. While I hold myself accountable.
For the next year (January 20th, 2013 – Janauary 20th, 2014), I will blog about my quest for happiness.
In order to realize my own happiness though, I need to figure out what makes me happy.
