I am continuing to define and refine the purpose and theme of this blog. What this blog is going to focus on primarily is the building blocks that are required to live a happy and content life. Most of us acknowledge that we could be doing this “life thing” better. Many of us have that nagging voice in our head telling us what we’re missing out on, what we should be doing, what we shouldn’t be doing, etc. I am going to begin keeping a log of the frustrations that I experience and begin to address each frustration one by one. As I’ve stated, our lives are made up of a lot of small things that when aggregated, cause a lot of trouble. I am going to examine each frustration and figure out why the frustration exists and what can be done about it. The hope is that with this gradual untangling, that we can gradually gain a better idea of how life can be lived in a way that makes us happy, joyful and content.
Now, in order to begin this journey (in a public sense), I first need to find time to blog. This is going to be a challenge. With two kids, there is rarely a quiet moment in our house. With two kids and a full-time job, there is very little time to do anything other than the absolute essentials when I am at home. Even now, my kids are asking for breakfast….and it’s 9:20 a.m. on a Sunday. My first life-rebuilding goal is to find time to work on this blog.
Now, I know that I have no readers at the moment, so I realize that I am talking to a pretend audience. But I am still going to do what I intend to do going forward and that is to invite reader input. How do you make time to do something when every minute of your day already seems to be allocated to something important?
Okay, fantasy audience…let’s hear what you have to say!Share
