This is it. This is here and this is now. I have started so many blogs that I am uncomfortably struggling with how to start this one sounding as excited as if it’s my first time, ever, and without being unoriginal.
But that’s what ruins almost everything right? That ‘thinking too much‘ attitude? In my short experience in living, I have learned that the things that we will regret the most when we are older, are not those that we have done, but, rather, those that we did not do. Mark Twain said so.
And so, without further ado, this is me, taking the plunge, taking that leap of faith and taking full responsibility of what I write and share in this blog. I know that sounds a lot of taking. Forgive me, but I’ll need all that I need to start over completely. You would understand if you were like the old me, who loved starting things but struggled in completing them. I am no longer that person. But that doesn’t take away the small hints of fear and doubt as I make a final stand on what I really want.
And I want to finish this race, like this guy on the left.
Now that that’s out of my chest, I will proceed with making commitments and writing them on paper (in this case, blog) as is what should be done if I wish to succeed.
And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.” Habakkuk 2:2
All my past life, I have struggled with making commitments; the fear of not following through and the regret of committing in the first place. This made me a coward and a laughing stock of the voices in my mind, which, at that time, I’ve mistaken as the world. This is no longer the case and so I press on.
On this blog, I make the following commitments, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer and in health, to be my reminder and the blog law for myself, until monetary fund, sickness and death do us part.
- I commit to never deleting the contents of this blog, such as posts, images, links, pages and other miscellaneous data unless:
- ordered by the law, both government and moral;
- requested by my readers, on a case by case basis;
- required for my spiritual, emotional, mental and physical advancement;
- I commit to post a blog update, at the minimum of once a month.
This is my solemn vow.
Thank you for being a part of this day, by being here, right this very moment. If you are reading from the future, know that you have witnessed a, rather exaggerated, blog introduction (but essential and important, nonetheless) that transcends both time and distance. May you be inspired and find encouragement knowing that you can fall countless times but never lose the chance and choice to win.
It’s your turn to make a difference now.
