I've decided to launch a new blog, The Beacon. It will reflect my personal philosophies on living life. I suppose it's a bit indulgent but I'm feeling introspective. This is perhaps, the manifestation of my own mid-life crisis? My life is good. I'm surrounded by people I respect and admire, though I rarely seem able to convey my appreciation appropriately to acknowledge that simple fact. I think it must be a result of my own selfishness.
At any rate, I'm 44 going on 45 and my views seem to be in a state of metamorphosis. I must admit I'm baffled myself by some of the principles I now find myself embracing. I feel I'm headed down the right path though.
I'm in the process of reexamining and ultimately, reordering my priorities. I need to fully absorb and integrate many of the lessons I've learned but refused to incorporate into a meaningful change in behavior. My analogy for explaining how I feel remains the same: I'm walking through the woods and I'm not on the path. I'm alongside it, going in the right direction, it's usually in view, but I'm not on it.
I need to find out why. The Beacon will be my journey.
