Post # 1

Well, ever since being exposed to Blogland (and I sincerely hope that the person that did this stops by sometime, if it hadn't been for her, I would have never ventured into Blogland), I have considered starting one of my own. I hadn't done so up until now for fear that no one would read it or that I would really just not have anything worthwhile or funny to say. That may STILL be the case. But over the past few days, I have been asked why I hadn't started one of my own and been told that I should. So, here I am.

So, I will start off with something a little serious, a brief explanation of something that is important to me.On my profile, I profess to live my life by "the Attitude of Gratitude". Basically, that means that I am thankful, grateful for anything that comes along in my life, even things that I don't like...ESPECIALLY the things I don't like. It is very easy to enunciate this, much more difficult to actually LIVE it. I don't accomplish this every minute of every day, but it is something that I give my best effort to and be conscious of at all times. I say it's not easy because not everything is going the way I'd like it to in my life right now, but I have found that it is still better to do this than any other perspective I have taken in my few years on this plane of existence. Positive Mental Attitude...not easy, but that's it, in a nutshell.

Now, for my other favorite perspective...humor. Since we have just passed the holiday of Thanksgiving, what do I have to be thankful for? Well, its a big holiday in my family, because we actually have a family reunion on Thanksgiving Day. And I have been sick with strep throat for the whole past week and I missed the whole thing, so, what a bummer, right? Well, no, because, since I was sick at home all alone (whining now), I was able to view the "Thanksgiving Bondathon" on SPIKETV.

Well, that's enough for now. In the future, I'm sure I will expound here on the verities of the universe, but also, I will just try to have a good time...because again, I don't think we are put here to have a bad time of it. Here's to hoping to have a GOOD TIME.

11/28/2005 5:21 pm made it! And I see you believe in the power of positive thinking. Extremely ancient concept..but still true. As you shall it be. We create our own reality. It's really hard to keep a positive attitude...isn't it?

Ok..enough of that.

I really am glad you made it. You're off to a good start.

Now this guy on the comment ahead of me...he's just showing off. I've tried (just once..I admit) to get different sizes and colors on my didn't work..I got

Wow, three comments on my first post...and here I thought nobody would visit...hehehe

sleeplessknight1 Thank you for the welcome to Blogland and for your offers of assistance with links and all and the invitation to the "blogger's group" far as the link to your "site map", I had already saved that location upon suggestion from another "friendly (and very cute) blogger"...thanks again

Kissmystuff Yes, isn't interesting how the farther advanced we think we are, the more those eternal truths become even more useful...and yes, I've made it here, thanks to your gentle suggestions...thank you so much for that and for visiting

goddess1946 Yes, my life, even though not always going the way I'd like, has become much more easy to live with just that simple change of perspective...thanks for the welcome, the visit and the compliment, lovely one

I've yet to learn how to be greatful for the negative stuff in my life. The lessons continue...

In my younger, ashtma-free days, I could really belt out Crazy on You, and just about any other Heart song pre-1982.

Just want to keep this blog going!
AND say hi to someone who seems like an almost unbelievably incredible man. Sexy as hell, honest, giving (even not having met you yet, I can just tell you are), FUN and insatiable! <<< That last one scares me a little!

See you soon, E.
