One Foot in Front of the Other

Some days your life is all about your dreams, hopes, and visions for the future. But there are some days where life is just about putting one foot in front of the other…and that’s okay.

That’s how I have been for the last while. That’s why you haven’t heard from me for so long. Some minor health issues, work definitely gets in the way, and I admit it, there’s been some self-pity, a lot of self-pity.  But I am now back on the right track and I’m back to the land of living like my life is grand. Just putting one foot in front of the other.


One thing I know for sure I have been doing all wrong—living in the future—wishing my life away. I am retiring from work at the end of the year culminating in a three-week trip to Europe and ending with Christmas in London. Planning the trip is not a bad thing—for me, it’s half the fun of going on vacation. But the problem lies with the fact that I am counting down the days already until I am free my nine-to-five job—100 days give or take a few. So I trudge off to work dreading every day, looking forward to my next three day weekend. There are so many things that I want to accomplish when I am free from going to work every day and the list gets longer and longer. But no more, I am going to try to go to work with a new attitude.

The reason I started this blog is two fold—I love to write, I always have something on my mind and I wanted to share my love of life with others. After a year of pouring out my feelings and letting everyone know how grand my life is I am still going nowhere with my blog. So I stopped. It was the middle of winter (I hate winter) and yes that’s when the self-pity set in, I spent my time thinking my life isn’t so grand, I’m not a writer and who am I kidding, this blog is just for me. I’d like it to be more; I’d like to make an impact somewhere for someone, and yes I admit I’d like to make it profitable. So I am starting again. I will start putting one foot in front of the other and continue to write.  Maybe I’ll add more topics but I will continue to write for myself and all of my 20 + followers. And you know what—I am feeling energized all over again. Who knows what lies ahead.

Stay Tuned…
