No Better Time

No better time than the present is how the saying goes. So I guess it is no better time than the present to get this ball rolling. I have been wanting to write on my blog more often. I keep telling myself, I will start in January and I will write a blog at least 3 times a week…And then I never do.

Well? I ask myself. Why wait til January? Why not start now? Start writing the blog and get into the habit.

So here is blog #1… A challenge to myself to blog everyday until December 28th. They say it takes about 21 days to make a habit. About what? I’m not sure of – this one thing I do know…everyday will hold something new – ish. Something I have created, thought about, imagined, or have done.

So here’s a quick update about myself…

I just had a birthday – on Black Friday. I turned 25 for the second time. Ironic that my 50th birthday fell on a Black Friday. I do have to say, I felt depressed. I have been struggling with depression a lot lately. You would think that by the time one turns 50, they have overcome identity crises and know who they are and what their purpose is in life. Nope. I turned 50 and wondered – now what? Why do they call it over the hill? Am I now on the downhill side? How much time do I have left? Where is everyone? Why do I feel so lonely – even though I have lots of friends? Is this normal?

I don’t feel 50. After losing 100 pounds and with 40 more to go til I hit my goal… I don’t feel 50. I feel pretty good – physically
