time to get back to it

Thursday, June 26, 2008

I haven't been terribly active here lately. We moved in April, I started a new business, and we just got busy with everything life throws at you.

It's time to focus here again and finish what I started. I have been chosen to be in the spotlight which completely rocks. It shows me that there are people who are impressed and motivated by what I've done so far. While I won't deny my achievements, I still haven't reached the final goal. I've been thinking that I need to get back here, now is the time to do it.

For one thing, I need to do it for myself. But I also need to be there for the people who see what I've done and might see what I'll continue to do. During the time I've been away I've maintained my weight, now I need to finish the job and get to where I really want to be.

I've learned that sometimes a little success can be intoxicating. It can cause people to become complacent. They will decide they're ok with what they have and not try for more. Not just with weight loss, but in many aspects of life. But to keep growing, achieving, and becoming the best you can be, you have to keep setting new goals. You have to keep pushing yourself to do more. When you reach one goal, you set a new one. Whether it's to go beyond where you are, or to do something totally new, you need to keep striving for something. You should be happy with what you have, and set reasonable goals, but if they're good goals you'll be happy in the pursuit of those as well.

So I'm back. I'll fill in some of the blanks of my absence in the coming days and weeks. Nothing terribly exciting past getting a new convertible just in time for summer. I'm always dark in the summer but much more so now. Any day there's no rain the top is down and I'm loving it.

I'll also be posting my new goals, and checking in with the friends, old and new, that I have here. It's good to be back.
