A fellow adventurer

Posted by Dawn-Ann on February 6, 2015

I found this cool blog by a lady who reminds me of me. We could be kindred spirits!

She calls herself Far Seer and her blog is very coolly named Philoso-Forward. She is mature and, like me, struggling to redefine herself and her life as she begins the second half of it. Check it out!

New beginnings… er…

Okay. Well, that title sounds a little cliche but I don’t know how to say it better.

Celebrate life! :)

I’ve been away for awhile doing other things. But now I am coming close to finishing up some big projects and my calendar is finally starting to clear a bit and I’m thinking, What next?

I don’t know, but I have a lot of ideas jangling around in my head. I want to try some new things, for one. For instance, I have never read a Stephen King novel. Seriously! And me wanting to be a writer.

So I’m thinking this blog, besides being about family research, could morph into a tale of my own journey. I want to try new adventures, read literature I’ve never tried before, travel, write, and dream. In that spirit, I picked up a couple of books at Chapters tonight – one a Stephen King novel and the other Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club.

I’m going to challenge myself to write (almost) every day and make every day count. One day you may read about horseback riding adventures and another you may learn something new that I’m reading about.

I want to learn to grab joy from every minute. From every experience.

And worry less.

Join me. It’ll be fun!
