New Year, New Me

Happy New Year and welcome to my blog. For those of you New, take time to see the evolution from start to finish. For those returning, welcome back. Thank you so much for your comments and suggestions. The new me is because I have stopped opioid use after many years of morphine, OxyContin and others. I feel, after four months, reborn. Sure I still have pain but at age 71 I figure “get over it”. Seriously, I will have surgery the 22nd of January to replace a titanium plate in my left arm that broke, and re-fusing that wrist. So yeah, 10 days of pain pills and a cast for about six months. My health is decent and I plan on living to 132 since I have 61 years of plans to finish. There is more to that story, for a later update. I am also revising my YouTube channel soon and will include my Twitter and channel info soon. This could be a wonderful year for me, and I hope for you as well. I am trying to achieve a position to assist others in attaining their goals by opening your minds to possibilities, as well as energizing your actions. Sure, I kick back and procrastinate from time to time, and I would like to add some personal touches to this blog. I welcome comments and suggestions, but I do maintain a spam blocker which has stopped many thousands of malicious spam, as well as a huge number of attempted hackers. Who knew my blog would be of such interest. Again, thank you and welcome to my nightmare, as Alice Cooper once sang.
Consider the New Year as being an opening in a set of waves at the beach. Prepare to run in, throwing your “board” ahead and propelling yourself aboard, causing the board to breach the next oncoming wave and allowing you the opportunity to paddle into position, turning the board as you prepare for catching the selected wave. As you see the chosen wave approach, you begin to paddle until you feel the board start to rise and ride along in front of this wave. You cautiously rise to your knees, positioning your feet. As your speed increases stand upright and watch where you are heading. Balance is key, nearly as important as position of board and feet. Your body moves to balance and you have begun your ride. Scan ahead for problems and solve them before you encounter them. Congratulations, you too are heading towards a great year.
