What’s so fascinating and frustrating and great about life is that you’re constantly starting over, all the time, and I love that. – Billy Crystal
You might have noticed it’s a little different around the website these days. I figured with all the changes going on in my life, why not add a little bit more frustration (no, actually a whole lot more frustration) and get it over with in one fell swoop! So in my typical “I need it now” fashion, I searched, I found, and I hit Apply. Presto…just like that a new look and feel with the click of a mouse. Okay this was only in my dreams (sigh), but it was a good dream while it lasted. Changing over has been a major pain in the you know what.
The change was a necessary evil and one I knew would have to be done sooner or later. When I first started out in the “Kingdom of Blog World” last August, I readily admit I had no idea what I was doing (you may attest to this statement when you peruse my earlier posts). I had vision, was eager to start and jumped in with both feet, although not sure of where I would land in the process. If you had asked me then what that might look like, my answer would be very different than what it is today.
And I’m okay with that. Not that it’s easy, as Billy Crystal is surely aware of, but it’s important. The previous blog theme had areas that didn’t function properly, was slow and unresponsive at times and needed more space to open it up for greater opportunities. I thought about waiting for the perfect moment to make a change; wait until all the stars aligned and Venus was in her proper orbit. Sadly, this would never have happened. If I continued to wait for the nebulous optimum conditions, opportunities would have gone wanting, frustrations would have mounted, and open spaces would have been harder and harder to find.
Kinda like life, huh?
