Finding Me

March 2, 2010

Ok so I decided to try my hand at this blogging thing. I’m thinking at the least it is an opportunity for me to see if I possess any writing skills, but if I’m really fortunate, I may find myself at the end of a journey of self-discovery that, if I were to admit it, I have been on for a very long time. Of course, more likely than not, it will be something in between. Oh well, here goes…….
So I figure I’ll go for the jugular and start with the whole self-discovery thing. That seems like a very noble goal doesn’t it? Well I, in fact, do think that to be a very noble goal. Trouble with goals though, noble or otherwise is that they are pretty easy to set; the loftier the easier, world peace and all of that, but when it comes to actually doing the thing……..well, that’s another matter. According to Mr. Shakespeare, “there’s the rub”. Hence, here we are.
To tell the truth, this is kinda scary, because if I am to succeed in “finding me”, I’ll have to probably talk about things that I have absolutely refused to face up to before. Not sure I’m ready to do that as yet though. Its a good thing this blog isn’t only about self discovery, but about pretty much anything that pops into my mind. This could get very interesting because a lot of stuff pops into my mind.

To anyone who actually reads this, I hope you’re patient with me. If you’re not patient that’s fine too, this is after all about me. Talking about myself is not something I do easily. As you’ve probably guessed by now, you’re not about to be privy to any of my deep dark secrets just yet. Yeah, I chickened out…..Oh well, so much for the jugular. This ended up being more like a head fake.

Despite my cowardice ( I had a friend who told really corny jokes and he used to say that “coward ice” was ice that was afraid to melt….really, it wasn’t me who said it)I hope you hang in there with me as, every so often (whatever that means), I get back to the whole search for self deal.

I guess you could look at this whole blog thing as me ……thinking out loud.
