I promised myself that I would write something, anything before the month was out. I’ve had a great year so far, but I almost let procrastination get me again. So, I’m here to fulfill my promise to myself. I’m writing a post. And, I think it might be somewhat appropriate to start with this meager little introduction.

I’ve picked up some great new habits this year. I’m eating better, exercising, journaling. I’ve had conversations with myself, my loved ones, and coworkers that are important. Everyday, I’m realizing new things about myself. I’m 39, and I feel like maybe I’m becoming an adult.

I’ve always been pretty confident. It’s allowed me to have middling success, but I’ve always known (or hoped) that I had more in me. I want to give more. I want to create more. I want to have an impact on the world. It’s time to really start working on what’s holding me back. This is going to take a new level of honesty with myself. Recently when I’ve been confronted with my own shortcomings and been honest with myself, I feel like I’ve been able make changes so much more quickly and with less pain. I’m going to sign off for now, but I am going to attempt to share this experience with whoever might be reading this.
