Never Give Up, Never Surrender

There are a great many things in life that I simply do not understand.  I’ve come to a place in my life where understanding is simply not required for all situations.  I can continue to walk my path with my head held high.  I know I make mistakes, I know I fall on my face sometimes.  And yes sometimes I take on too much, things will fall through the cracks.  I will get everything picked up and have everything running smoothly but you’d be lucky to find me interacting.  I get so busy with keeping things running in the backend that my frontend is forgotten all about.

One of the things that I have learned over the years is that I must go with the ebb and flow of my life.  There are periods of much activity in the forefront or public and periods of activity behind the scenes.  Rarely are the two periods ever in any kind of balance.  It’s either rain or shine it seems.

At some point recently I decided that it was time to begin working on changing that.  To begin working both in the rain and the shine so to speak.  I want to maintain a presence in the front and in the back.  This is going to be one of my biggest personal challenges to myself in a while.  I have to schedule time to sit and be present in forums, attend chats, visit with friends, while at the same time getting my work done, attending to my home, my family and other duties. Hmm…this should be interesting to see how it all works out.  I want to make it a habit.  Something that I can do well and continue to improve upon.  This is the emotional aspect of my healthy improvements I’ve been making for sometime.  Physically I am working on stamina, endurance and overall health.  Weight loss is a ‘bonus’ in this adventure.  My spiritual and emotional sides must also be nurtured though this.

Can’t, Don’t, Quit, Walk away…are words and concepts that are foreign to me.  I continue on no matter what.  I will make mistakes.  I will fall on my face during this.  I will also learn and improve as I go along.  This should be enlightening, terrifying and wonderful.
