Why did I decide to write this blog? That’s an excellent question.

First and foremost, I’m a writer. I’m not sure exactly when I figured that out, but it’s been a part of my life that’s been sorely lacking recently. I wanted to give myself a little exercise in a sort of meditation that only writers will understand. Within me there are so many stories. I recount them daily as if I’m learning the lessons all over again. Life is a magnificent journey and each day should have at least one thing about it that I can write about… even if it’s the trigger to a memory.

I have a few mantras. My two favorites:

  1. Always set out to accomplish what others say you can’t.
  2. Become the most interesting person you know.

I’ve always thought that one day I might write a book. Perhaps this little exercise will be good practice.
