Blogging 101

I've been told it's a good idea to have a blog on here, so I'll give it a shot. I, already have a blog associated with my pro-domme website, but this is different, since I'm not seeking clients here. Lots of changes (again) in my life, not so big, but they seem huge to me at times.

The biggest of these changes is the fact that I'm beginning to realize that I might actually be ready and willing to accept another person in my my "personal space". After 21 years of being happily divorced, and avoiding relationships that I feared might become "too close for comfort", I'm coming around. Or maybe not, but I'm ready to give it a shot anyway. Thing is, I believe in polyamory, and am polyamorous myself. Not greedy, just realistic. I don't see myself as the be all and end all for anyone, nor do I see myself settling for just one person, and compromising my own needs in order to feel compatible. Besides, I can be hard to get along with, there are times I can't even stand myself, so would never expect anyone else to try to be around me for lengthy periods. I'll come back to this discussion in another post, because I think it's worthy of discussion.

Another biggie is a repeat, but huge nonetheless. I've chosen tomorrow as the day I will officially become a born again non smoker. I think I have it this time, because I'm doing it for completely different reasons than I had in my previous attempts. Don't need you to wish me luck, because I have determination

Along with the smoking cessation I'm also beginning a new fitness program. It's been suggested that it's probably not a good idea to try to change two habits at the same time, but I disagree. In fact, one could look at it as just changing ONE habit. I'm going from an unhealthy lifestyle to a more healthful one. Besides, it is also recommended that one should attempt to replace the habit of smoking with something else, to fill the void, I guess. I'm choosing fitness, and along with that goes proper diet and nutrition. Besides being healthier, I hope to avoid the weight gain associated with giving up the smokes.

Now I just have to find something to do with my hands, to take the place of the ritual of smoking; something to compensate for the oral gratification I'll be missing, and some form of aerobic activity to make me breathless enough that smoking would be undesireable anyway. Any suggestions?
