Happy 39th Birthday to me! I can hardly imagine that anyone would ever want to read what I think about things – certainly the reason I only write for myself – so publishing this blog is definitely a risk for me (even if no one ever does read it!). Which seems appropriate somehow, my version of going out of my thirties with a bang. I decided to write about moderation, such a boring concept at first glance but SO HARD to achieve, especially for me but I suspect for others as well. I know from my own experiences that all things in moderation are good, truly, and yet it’s a struggle, for me, to not under- or over-indulge. I use journaling as a tool for keeping myself on track, for slowing down and savoring life’s pleasures – because giving up all pleasurable things is NOT a way to live – instead of impulsively devouring them. I’m better sometimes than others. This blog will basically be my journal, my thoughts and efforts and conversation about living a good life – in moderation.
