Why do I write?

Today is the day… To start something new.

It’s a new year, and I am going to make something of it. No more wishing and thinking ‘what if’, then feeling sad when life doesn’t turn out the way I want it to. I’m sure I’ll still feel lost at times, and I may not know where I’m headed, but I will stop wasting time fretting over that, and start enjoying the journey.

I’ve always wondered how some people can keep a regular blog. It looks like a lot of effort. Do they write, hoping someone will read it, or are they writing for themself?

This time next year, I’ll have an answer to this :)

Meanwhile, I write to remind myself that today is the day I do something new. Walk outside my comfort zone, try something different, live a little. I want to savour every day and remember that it is time that will never be repeated again. So I cannot waste a minute.

It’s just 5 days into the new year, and I think I’m off to a decent start. I’ve baked pineapple tarts from scratch for the first time, and I’m planning a last minute family trip to Japan.

Baby steps, but I’ll get there. There’s no better time than now.
