534. THE WHY FOR MY HOW


I recently read a quote by Friedrich Nietzsche, “he who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”

So I am removing all the hows that are in the way of my why. The first thing I am doing is getting on a rigorous work out regiment. I do love working out, and sometimes I fall off the exercise wagon. But when I get back on, the endorphin rush makes me feel unstoppable, energized and electric. I have recently gotten into spinning and think I may have a new addition.

The next thing is, I am off dating, desi or otherwise. I am done trying to stuff a square shaped peg into a round hole. Besides, I am a romantic. Yes, I’m a cynic, but a romantic. I believe that love finds you when you are not looking for it like an obsession. Not that I am living by why for how mantra because of Town & Country, but he does have single vision – work – and nothing gets in the way of his success. And it is time to focus on my single vision - my writing.

The last and most important thing is to take what I learned in my memoir writing class and incorporate that into what I learned in my blogging class and finally launch my blog. A blog that I will write in present tense about past events.

So I sit down at my desk and begin writing. I want about 11 posts written before I launch, so I can post two a day for almost a week. To get ahead so I can catch back up.

 The why for my how, that is my focus.
