{ there's nothing wrong with trying again }

It takes some humility to admit that sometimes the best intentions are just that - intentions - and mean little if there is no action to follow.  So, in humility, i admit that I failed again in my attempt at a photo blog.  And what stings the most is that it shouldn't be so hard.  Seriously.  In this age where there's an app for everything I should be be able to basically have a thought and it magically appear on this page.  But alas, it isn't so and this is where humility kicks in.  Or rather, kicks me in the arse...

You see, what all this really points to is that things in life come down to getting of your duff and deciding to do it.  And I obviously have just lamed out and sat on said duff when it came to putting anything on here. Now, this is not to say that I have anything profound or even remotely interesting to say (did I mention humility?) but even just the act of committing to doing something and following through (no matter how insignificant the task may seem) is a building block or a step to building a habit of completing goals.  And what do some habits become the stepping blocks to?  Virtue, my friends...Virtue.

Along with this quest for building of character I want to have something my children maybe could look back at and see a liitle more of what there Dad was like.  That there were things that I may have thought about other than keeping the back door closed (so we don't air condition the whole neighborhood) or what I was supposed to pick up at the grocery store.  That there were struggles and also hopes and dreams of what I wanted for them.

So, it is with this new thought in mind that I 'try again'.  All the time realizing that it really is not about what is said or what picture is taken or what thought is revealed - but it's about following through.  That's what counts...
