And we’re off! … The cold, rainy weather has got me dreaming of hot chocolate and a roaring fire. I’m also dreaming we get something good out of this first blog post. I’m nervous. My palms are sweaty. Knees weak, arms are heavy…. At least it’s a start.
What’s to be nervous about?! Let’s start with the fact that I have no idea what I’m doing. I hated writing. I always have. I did what I had to do to get through college and start a career, but I just cannot stand writing. Or, maybe it’s the ‘getting started’ part of writing that I hate. You’re literally talking to yourself and hoping whatever ideas travel down your brain stem, through thousands of muscles and eventually making their way onto the keyboard, don’t sounds like complete garbage and come out in a coherent, someone entertaining, fashion. OR, maybe it’s the paralyzing thought of someone else reading your words. Your thoughts. Your ideas. Criticizing your every word, and hoping you have the guts to accept the blows and move on. Either way, I’m determined to find a new appreciation for the written word. My written word.
In the future, I hope to post insightful stories, ideas and outlooks to help me, other new dads and moms, to get a way for a moment. To look at life from a different perspective and know that you’re not alone in this story. Stay tuned and I hope it’s worth reading.
