Why start a blog now?
The short answer is it’s my 2017 new year’s resolution….but the longer answer is to motivate myself (and hopefully others) to get out there and enjoy everything that this world has to offer. It wasn’t that long ago that my “younger self” was always ready for the next adventure….but somewhere along the way, things slowed down. Way down. There are plenty of good excuses why: a super demanding job, raising a family, health issues, and I hate to admit this, but getting older doesn’t make things any easier! I’ve been aware of this slow down for a few years now, and pretty much just chalked it up to “this is what happens when you get older.” But, when I sit back and think that through, I don’t like it…not one bit! Very cliche to say, but life is simply way too short.
So, over the past few months, I’ve been thinking thru what is it that’s most important to my family and I, and more importantly, how can I make THAT happen? What I’ve realized is that the only one holding me back was ME!!! Problem acknowledged, and now is the time to get back to being us. GGOTN is intended to keep me accountable to my new goal, and also share our journey with others that might find themselves in a similar un-wanted life “slow down.” Looking forward to this new chapter!
