I did two new things today… I started blogging and twittering (if you don’t know what twitter is go to twitter.com but basically it’s real time updating your life).  I have been agonizing for weeks over what to blog about looking for a major theme, message, etc.  I realized tonight I have been way over thinking it.  Finally, my friend, Gail Hyatt, said, "Just write from your heart, write for you, and the rest will follow". Hmmm.  That made sense. So I started tonight.

Recently, some friends and I walked in the Music City Half Marathon.  Because my knee had been hurting I decided to not push myself to finish the race.  My friends finished but I didn’t. That was really hard for me because I have always been about "finishing what I started".  (You know, when your mother”s voice is in your head!) But I realized that sometimes starting is as important as finishing. Sometimes, the harder thing to do is to focus on the now and not the destination.  And sometimes, doing the the hard thing turns out to be the best thing. 

So tonight I took my first baby steps in to the world of blogging. My blog may not be pretty and perfect but at least it’s a start.
