A New Approach

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

I’ve probably said this enough times now, but there needs to be a new way of doing things. What didn’t work before isn’t going to work now. I need to re-think the way I do some of the things that I do. It’s time to unsettle myself and see what kind of jitters I can cause by loosening the chains.

A New Year

Wednesday, January 10th, 2007

As the new year dawns, I find myself looking back at what got accomplished and what didn’t get done over the course of the past year. Overall, it was something of a transition year, and if nothing else, the bare minimum requirements for the year were met.

Looking ahead, this upcoming year is also something of a transition year. The decision has largely been made to go ahead and seek a home. Whether I am ready or not is a little hard to say, but it is a bit earlier than I had expected. Regardless, it’s full steam ahead and no turning back now.

I’ve always had trouble letting go, but as I age, I’ve noticed what seems to be a greater incentive to stop looking at the past and to look more closely at the path to forge ahead. Perhaps I feel that my time is almost upon me, and that progress must be made before it all becomes moot anyways. Sometimes I wonder why any progress must be made at all beyond the personal desire to achieve. Maybe it is just guilt. Guilt that I have failed to reach for what is possible if I simply willed it into being.

Can I overcome this? I guess it won’t be readily apparent until the time comes…
