Here I go again...

This little blog has been sorely neglected. I have been thinking for a long time of breathing a little life
into it again, but I was waiting. Waiting for what I am not sure. The perfect time I suppose. But I have a question to ask you… When someone wants to start something, a lifestyle change, a 365 day photo project, a blog, why does everyone wait for the beginning of something? The beginning of the year? The beginning of the month? The beginning of the week??
Let me tell you, being the perfectionist I am, that sounds just like me. I want everything to line up
just perfectly, neat and straight… but honestly, in life is anything ever perfect, neat and straight?? I
wanted to get this blog all set up first. Make my own backgrounds, make my own elements, set up
custom colors and columns. Play with all the little details until it was just perfect. But I ask you again, is anything ever perfect? What I really want to do is write, all the little details can be worked out as I go…
Being on Weight Watchers has taught me to never give up and you don’t have to wait to make a change.  If you have a bad snack or a bad meal, don’t just give up for today or even the week, you don’t have to wait until tomorrow or Monday to get back on track. There is no better time than now to get back to it. I am trying to take that attitude with life as well. People tend to think “I will be happy when ____________” (fill in the blank: when I get a new job, when I get a house, when I get a new girl/boyfriend, etc…) But what we have to realize is that life isn’t a destination, it is a journey. And we don’t know how long our journey will be. We need to be happy now, we need to make our own happiness now.
