Happy Birthday to the one called "me"

This blog has been in a coma. But seeing that I have recently started to awaken, the time feels right to wake this boy up, too. It also seems fitting that today is my birthday. In some ways, I feel like the past year has served as a call to action, and I have new appreciation of life. 

I considered starting a totally new blog, but that didn't seem right. I am not totally starting over with my life. I am just evolving. I intend to acknowledge the past but stay focused on the present day. Keeping this blog shows that I am aware of that continuity. 

Here's to gratitude, peace and love. Here's to today. Thank you. We are all in this together.
