Hello again everyone! NO, I’m not changing my blog again! Today, I’d just like to chat a little about changes in life.
As I draw closer to turning 50, I’ve began to make some changes in my life. I don’t know about anyone else but change for me is not always easy. I’ve become pretty set in my ways and I enjoy my life!
So, why change?
Well, the simplest answer is because I feel the need to. As I grow older, a lot of the things I have done in the past are not as easy to do now. Also, I realize that I have to wake up and realize that, even though I plan on living to 100, I’m not ever guaranteed tomorrow.
So, what kind of changes am I making?
Right now, that is still up in the air. It seems that everyday I come up with something new only to realize that I can’t change certain things and some things are better left untouched. However, I am making some lifestyle changes. For instance, I’ve already pretty much eliminated beef from my diet. I think a walking regimen of some sort is in order so that I can try to lose some of this fat. I’m also planning on changing my sleeping habits so that I sleep at night again!
One other thing I want to change is the quality of my posts. Many of my posts are spur of the moment. I think about something I want to write about and sit down and compose a blog in about 10 or 15 minutes. This is reflected in the quality of my posts, especially before I decided to just start all over!
Take for instance the post I am contemplating on my Mom and Dad. I could write about when they met, how long they were married and who their parents were. I could maybe post a couple of pictures and then I could call it a blog post!
I could call my mother and ask her a few questions about how she met my father, how they fell in love, when they decided to get married, how it was raising children while my father was travelling a lot with the construction company he worked for. If I do a little research I may come up with a tremendous post instead of a little tidbit.
With me getting older, I need to make sure I take the time to do things right the first time!
So, if you don’t see a lot of posts going on here, don’t panic. I haven’t abandoned this new endeavor, I’m just trying to do it right the first time!
I will also have a little something else to blog about here now, such as how my weight loss goals are going, how my new diet is going, how my changing my sleeping patterns will affect me, and the list could go on and on and on!
Thanks for taking moment to let me voice what was on my mind today. I look forward to our next converstation!
