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!
