day 14 – the start

FILED UNDER: Blog, Life

Starting is not easy; often times it is the hardest thing to do.  It is full of uncertainty, requires getting comfortable with the not so comfy stuff, putting yourself out there and taking a risk. As I reflect on these 30 years of living I think of how many ideas, dreams and goals have gone… Read more »

day 11 – don’t sweat

FILED UNDER: Blog, Life

It doesn’t have to be done all at once.  It will never all be finished.  There will be more.  And that is a wonderful thing.  It means I am still alive.  The end will be the end, and until then the book is still being written.  And I am the author. I was the kid… Read more »

  Struggling to find the words tonight.  I have 8 minutes until it is no longer day 7 and chances are this post won’t be up.  Fail.  Does it count if I haven’t gone to bed yet? The day started off ok, busy (as always), but overall smooth sailing.  Then I entered the danger zone. … Read more »
