I’ve had this blog for a long time and its focus has drifted with what I was interested in at the moment. I lost a lot of my musings when I changed platforms and probably could have gotten them back, but didn’t deem it worth the effort. Why? Because it wasn’t who I was at the moment, but I was wrong.
…but I was wrong…
There I said it. I was wrong. Just because I don’t teach scuba diving any more and rarely dive, doesn’t mean that being a diver isn’t part of my psyche today. It molded me. The same way that serving in the USAF molded me. The same way that working with nuclear weapon systems molded me. The same way that training to run a half-marathon (and running one) molded me. The same way that performing on the stage molded me…and so on. In retrospect I probably regret not trying to save those posts, but it is what it is.
Moving forward I’m going to embrace more of being me and less of being what others want me to be. To find myself and grow for myself. I suspect that focusing on that will help me have a better impact on those around me and that sounds like the proverbial ‘win-win’.
So now before I ‘…get too deep’, here’s to yet another new beginning. One I am calling: Being Me.
