A New Journey

I think today is the start of something big! Not that big things haven't been happening, but I have felt the past few months that things were happening to me or around me. I was sort of standing in the background watching them happen but I didn't feel like I was participating. I really was participating, but it was at a distance. At least emotionally. Today I decided to change that.

There isn't anything particularly special about today. It's the same as every other day, really. But, what is special is that I have decided to make it so. Today is the start of a new journey for me. I have been on this journey many times before. I have taken many roads but I have yet made it to my destination.  Some would call that failure.  I, however, do not. With each trip I have learned more about myself than the previous trip.  Each journey brings new and exciting things.  Each adventure is worthwhile.

I think I am better equipped for this journey than I have been in the past. I am quite familiar with some of the roads as I have travelled them many times before. With each passing, however, I notice something different. I learn a little more.  For those little side trips I have taken, some I can skip.  I didn't enjoy them the first time around and I don't think the second would be any different... or the third...or the fourth. If I do find myself on a path that I don't enjoy before there must be something there I need to see so I will do my best to look for it. No journey is wasted. All have a meaning. All have a purpose.

So there you have it. Today I start off on a new journey. An new adventure. A new life.  All because I said so.

Wow Sean! I really love your positive attitude and I will gladly participate with you! I know exactly how you feel and I have been on similar roads (way too many to count) myself. It is cool to learn new things about the Universe and most importantly about ourselves. I love this post and can't wait to see what great things you become an active participant in :-)

About Sean & Joey

Joey and I are just a couple of guys living in San Francisco. I love cooking and we both like trying new things. Planning our meals is one of our "together" things. I hope you enjoy our blog! - Sean


This blog is dedicated to the two most important people in my life - my mom, Ernee Jean O'Brien, and my partner Joey Concepcion. They both have showered me with unconditional support and love and have always encouraged me to be myself. I will always miss my mom and I don't know what I would do without Joey.
