It’s Almost Spring

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Wow… It’s been over a year since I posted here last. A lot has gone on over that time frame… a lot of adjustments. I’d like to believe that I’ve grown a bit. I have realized that I did stagnate for awhile in hope that the world would change itself, without too much effort from me. For better or worse that simply hasn’t been the case. In some way I feel that it’s been waiting for me to either decide to take action or for me to simply fade away.

One of the things I have learned is that I need to narrow my focus somewhat. I need to concentrate on the people and circumstances that are around me, those that directly impact me. I can’t worry about what’s going on in Washington, or overseas, when there are issues right in my own back yard. Continuing to strive for such ‘lofty goals’ only fuels frustration and for as much energy as it takes, the results, if any, are rather minute.

This pull back shouldn’t be confused with hesitation or laziness on my part. I’m simply looking at making the most out of the things I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I’m a master at finding or making up excuses and I know that when I get overwhelmed I tend to put off or ignore things. I think this will be less likely to happen if I concentrate more on fewer, less overarching, projects and finding the ability to not fixate overmuch on any one of them.

We’ll see what the immediate future has in store for me. I’ve got a new residence, a newly created business, and hey, it’s almost spring!
