And now, we begin . . .

It’s time — past time — for me.

After the last 18 months, after the multiple health scares with my father, and family and friend drama, and just the sheer massive all day all week load at work, I don’t have a choice.  I have to make ME the priority above everything else.  

I’ve looked over my whole life — my job and career, my health, the statue of my finances, the fact that I’m working 24/7 as opposed to living — and realized I’m deep down in a pit in every facet of my life.

It’s time to climb out.

Three simple goals:

  • Get back in shape.
  • Get a new job or get my career moving again.
  • Make a plan to pay off my debts from law school and post-9/11 unemployment.

Three simple goals — on paper.

Three goals that are going to require lots of work, and finding the time to do that work.

But I have to take the time for me.  Otherwise, I’ll be broke, fat and unhappy for a long time.

Only an idiot wants that.

And I’m not an idiot.  At least not anymore.

I’ll be blogging with updates on the overhaul of my life.  I’ve also preset a number of posts so I can complete the review of Star Wars books, which I had plenty of time to read thanks to my hospital vigils, and I’ll add in other topics of interest as I go along.

Wish me luck.  And if anyone needs a talented in-house attorney — let me know!
