It seems as if when I am not posting, it is because I am down about things. That has now passed and it is time to get back to posting again.
I have embarked upon a self improvement program. First, I cut my hair because it was way too long to manage, it was not particularly flattering given my age, and mostly because it was weighing me down. My hair has been symbolic of my life in the last couple of years. Freeing oneself of encumberances that keep you from enjoying life is probably one of the best things anyone can do for themselves. I am working on those encumberances and they are many.
There is an old saying that today is the first day of the rest of my life. Nothing is more true. I have been simply existing for some time. I need to start really living again.
To that end, cutting my hair, losing ten pounds, exercising on a regular basis again, getting involved with people and things that are positive, and starting each day with a positive outlook are paramount. It sounds so simple to write, but often it is so difficult to live when you have not been happy with yourself.
