So close to 365
As you may or may not know, I set a goal to post 365 blogs this year. At first, I thought this would be simple… At first, it was kinda simple.
I started with what I knew and what I wanted to talk about. All the bits and pieces of my life were thrown together to create more and more blogs. It was easier for me to write about the past and the present, so I went with it.
At first, it was all that I had been through. My ex-wife, my family business, and the struggles of my aunt and uncle since my aunt was very ill. Then came the unexpected passing of my uncle about the time I started the blog. He passed away on December 18, 2021. So, last year, my aunt was getting out of the hospital and my uncle was going in.
Now it’s my aunt.
I will write about my aunt in another blog. However, for now, she is not well and nearly a year after getting out she is back in the hospital. Either way… The point is that for the past year, my life and my past life have been in my blog.
I have not written nor shared every detail of my life. That would be boring. What I have shared is the journey I am on. I have seen and done many things most people would never get to do. I have also had the ups and downs of life that many people would never encounter.
I have had plenty of opportunities and letdowns that many people will never experience. No risk no reward, right? Many risks are calculated, but many are not. Many risks have little rewards and much risk. Sometimes we need to go for those risks that push us out of our comfort zone.
So far, I am at over 316 I believe. I wish I could write a ton and be done with it. I cannot. I need to take it step by step and experience by experience.
So here it is to a few more blogs and many more experiences. I am unsure how often I will post after this is done. This blog has been a diary for me for the past year of my life in Bali. Things I have and have not managed to experience. While I do struggle, for the most part, words do flow out of my head. Much like this blog. While it is a bit of a filler, I consider it a blog of encouragement and the light at the end of the tunnel.
