a blog’s purpose
Why does this exist ?
This site is designed to become active on the day of my forty-ninth birthday and then be a place I can come to record my thoughts over the ensuing year.
I am hoping that by reflecting upon my successes and failures, my daily frustrations, my moods, and my interactions with others, I may be able to be in a “better place” when I reach my fiftieth birthday.
I am not expecting anyone to see this content, however people may find it. That’s okay. It isn’t secret. However some may be surprised or even alarmed by the things that I write. That could be because I intend to be as honest (with myself) as it is wise to be in a public forum. Those who do know me will easily identify this site as mine, and are welcome to do with that information, what they will.
So there will be a blog. Will it start with gusto and fizzle out ? Will it prove helpful ? Will it lead me to better understanding of my life situation ? Or might it reinforce some of the negative thoughts that often crowd my mind.
Only the next year will tell…
