You've Got to Start Somewhere

Another blog, and why read it? Honestly do, don't, it's not about you. It's about me, keeping me honest. Recalling the line from the movie encoded on the female cultural DNA, Pretty Woman, "Do you have goals; you've got to have goals," succinctly sums up the reason for this blog. A girls got to have goals. And, it helps if you write them down. And, it helps even more if you make them public. It makes it a little harder to do a little editorial, apply a little spin, you get the idea. Sure it's a cliche to start such a thing on New Year's Eve, but why not? It's authentic, it's sincere, and what better time? (Right, one of those goals might just need to be stop apologizing and justifying, but let's take it one step at a time shall we, Rome and all that.)

So where is this coming from? Why share it? I'm just like you. I'm not particularly remarkable. I'm a basically happy individual, actually pretty blessed to be honest, and grateful to. But...(you knew that was coming right?) as happens in many lives, things start to drift, life gets busy and messy, and somehow the goals get guiltily pushed aside. So this is me, making me live mine out in words and deeds, one little day at a time.

This is my somewhere. This should be interesting...
