Hello, Again


I blog.


Days pass.


Weeks pass.


Months pass.


I blog.


So here I am again:


“Moderation? It’s mediocrity, fear, and confusion in disguise. It’s the devil’s reasonable deception. It’s the wobbling compromise that makes no one happy. Moderation is for the bland, the apologetic, for the fence sitters of the world afraid to take a stand to live or die. Moderation is lukewarm tea, the devil’s own brew!” --Dan Millman, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior


This quote was listed in a book I was reading yesterday afternoon…it struck a nerve. The same nerve that was struck the night before and started me on a mini-rant about news reporting and the institution of medicine. The same nerve struck yesterday morning when I checked the voicemail from my pharmacy notifying me my doctor’s office declined to renew my prescription for insulin because I hadn’t been in for “a long time”.


It’s a nerve that’s been struck thousands of times and usually I flinch or wince. Or reflexively kick. All moderate responses.


Moderation No More!


Today I am starting a program to completely overhaul my lifestyle as well as my spiritual life. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to blog about it more as part of my journaling, but part of the plan is to eliminate TV and severely limit computer/internet use.


On another subject, my personal trainer is settling in well…we’ve lost a few books and other small items and he can get bossy and pushy but at least 23 hours out of each day he is a wonderful dog.


I just remind myself that even the best of us carries some baggage and has some kind of issues. I’m working on his…and mine.
