So, why a new blog?

I turned 40 six months ago, and since then, I have struggled to find my focus. It's trite and common, but I suppose I am dealing with a mid-life crisis. So, rather than purchase a convertible and have a trashy affair with a go-go boy, I have decided to work through it by writing about it.

I started blogging in October 2005, here at Falling Into Forty. I wrote about everything that was going on around me - politics and parties, family and friends, celebrations and sorrows. I tried to keep it going after my birthday, but I really lost my connection to it.

But this blog will be much more focused on me and my goals. I need a reset of sorts, to figure out what is important and where I should direct my energy. So we'll see if this helps me find my way back. I am hopeful.
