Well, i did it! Although i don't believe in new years' resolutions, I'm committing to a "path", my journey for ... as long as i bloody well feel like it! Correction -- as long as i think it holds promise. :-)
Lots of spurs led me here, not least of which was the book i began reading last night, The Flinch, by Julien Smith (thank you for introducing it, Richard!). I realize how much my life has been formed by "pain avoidance". My biggest character fault, i believe, is a lack of self-confidence, keeping me from leaping whole-heartedly into a lot of different things, from hobbies to life-significant pursuits. I won't go into details about how i think i LOST said confidence....
Suffice it to say, i'm ready to leap NOW. This blog is part of it. Another part is, i started Chris Kresser's Personal Paleo Code program this morning. I'm going to be PERFECT for a solid month. No dairy, no liquor, no soda.... I suspect that cheese will call my name the loudest.
So i'm committing myself publicly, here. NOW.
