The last year and a half have been something of a journey for me. I’ve spent most of my life as an anxious, up-tight, nut job. And that’s putting it nicely.
Slowly, I’ve attempted, sometimes unsuccessfully, to find some peace. To be centered, focused, and relaxed. It isn’t easy. I come from a line of worry warts, and I have a tendency to follow the plan. Follow the Plan. Exactly. And any deviation throws me into a tailspin.
So, for my health, for my relationships, I’ve tried to learn to relax. It’s not as easy as it sounds. After a lot of reading, thinking, and experimenting, I think I’ve found five things that help. And so I’ve made five promises to myself.

I am more successful at some more than others during any given week, but the point is to just keep trying.
Which has led me to think a lot about this blog. It’s basically a ramble of my random thoughts. Given my career choice and priorities in life, I would like to hone the focus of my writing to something that will help me learn, grow and become a better version of me. (Thanks, Fiona).
So, while I still have some thinking to do, my goal here is likely to change. I’m taking it one step at a time and we’ll just have to wait and see where this leads.
