Hello?… Are you still there? May 15, 2011Posted by 5 Wester in General Announcements.
Wow! It’s been a while since I’ve made any entries on this so-called blog of mine. The last entry I see was back in November of 2010, can you believe it?! At the moment, I am undergoing transition in my life that has significantly rearranged my priorities. Time has a way of making you stop, look back, reconsider, and plan for the future. Looking at the present and the not so distant future, I came to realize that we have but a short time, and unfortunately, we are not getting any younger. What we have missed in the past is long gone. The time to start something, if we were to start anything at all, would be now! Now’s the time to be happy… now’s the time to live healthy… now’s the time to celebrate life. I’ve always wondered why people say “Life begins at 40!”. In 2 years, I will get there. I’ve never understood what that saying meant until now. I guess we get so busy “building a career” in our 20s and 30s, we forget that there is life to live. Then it dawns on us by the time we hit 40, that life is too short to squander in trivial pursuits. Talk about a rude self-realization awakening! Thus, I find myself at the cross roads of my life… performing a self assessment of my last 39 years spent on this earth…. and like the great King Solomon said, “…vanity of vanities, all is vanity!” (Ecc 1:2). Well… enough said…. moving on… nothing to see here.
Having said what I’ve said, I’ve decided to steer this blog onto a whole new direction. Of course, you might see an occasional rant here and there, however, I’ve decided to share my life experiences and hopefully extract the lessons I’ve learned to helps someone that may be traveling the same road. Looking back at my life, I could say that I would have been better off if I had a guide, nevertheless, I believe it’s not too late to change course. Thus, we shall pick up where we left off and head out in a whole new direction, and hopefully the path we blaze can help others find their way… here goes…
