This Is It

Here it finally is: my first blog post. The blog post I’ve been wanting to write for at least six months now. The blog post I thought I had to wait for the perfect circumstances to write. My two week vacation to Europe over the summer opened my eyes, though. I remember seeing an ad on the Paris metro with the following quote:

I was thankful my dusty French language skills had come back to me so quickly as I was able to figure out the meaning:

 “We have two lives. The second starts the day the day we realize we have only one.”

So, this is it. Life starts now. I need to do what I want and what will make me happy now. Not when xyz is in place or when I have the perfect amount of ideas or when the timing is perfect (which is such an abstract idea—what time is perfect?).

I want to start crafting the life I want. I’m 30 years old, so it’s about time. It’s not that I haven’t “started” my life yet. I love my current job, work for a great employer, have a wonderful husband and family, a starter home with an affordable mortgage, all the things I should want, right? It works and it works well, but I have the sense there’s something else more out there for me. Please join me on my journey as I start to form the life I was meant to lead and to help others find their way as well!

  2. […] I’m going to just go for it from now on. I’m going to remember my very first post on not waiting until it’s perfect. Maybe some posts will be short. Maybe some will be long. […]

I'd love to hear from you. Please leave a comment!
