Aside in Melbourne — or — Mission Statement: Revised

Ok, it’s been a few days, I’ve had a little time to disappear, and I think that’s a good thing. I know I said one of my goals was to write every day, but now I think sometimes you can’t really realize what your goals are until you attempt them.

Before I left on this journey, I spent a lot of time chatting with friends about a “theme” for the blog. What would make this interesting for other people to read? It’s a valid point, especially that when it comes down to it, the only people really paying close attention are my parents. (Hi mom, hi dad). I thought about doing a “life list” (thanks to Kim for that), but each of the 25 “goals” I came up with seemed ridiculous after I looked at them the next day. Learn to surf, keep up the blog, volunteer, etc. etc. Worthy goals (and yes, I still want to accomplish them), but just not something I need to list. The truth is, I’ve already accomplished my goal — I’m here. Whatever else comes along the way is just that — what comes.

This weekend I let go a bit  — no assignments, no writing, no worrying about writing, I just let go and said f – it. Worth. It.

  1. What am I paying you for?
