I grew up in a small town and now live in the Los Angeles area*. I’m madly in love with and very happily married (more than 25 years) to my college sweetheart, have two great kids, love my life, enjoy my job (university professor), and hope to (somehow) provide some kind of encouragement to others. I love to read and learn.
I brought this over from my first post:
Many years ago (too many years ago), when I turned 30, I was staggered by how old I had become while allowing myself to just kind of wander through the life I had been given. As a result, I spent several days creating a list of the things I wanted to accomplish with the rest of my life. These became my “bucket list” twenty years before I ever heard that descriptor. I stopped my list at fifty items and set about accomplishing as many items as possible – but not necessarily with a single-minded purpose to do so.
I’m not entirely sure why others blog, but my goals with this are simple: I want to put some of my thoughts and experiences in writing, share them with you (since you are reading this), and encourage you to pursue your own goals – no matter how unreachable they may seem.
As Walt Disney said, “If you can dream it, you can do it.”
Let’s see how it goes…
I can’t remember where I obtained this picture, but it never fails to make me smile.
*Note – My family and I have moved to a small town in Northern California, so the last year and a half have been extremely busy, with new jobs and house hunting, remodeling the home we purchased, and making new inroads into a new community. It’s been fun, but busy. I’m hoping to find more time here now.
