I've been visiting various blogs and leaving messages in hopes of creating a nice network of people who share a number of commons interests. Please don't be intimidated though if you're just starting in an area like running, mountain biking, writing or whatever it is that gets you feeling like a kid again. We all need to try new things or recapture that feeling. I know there are people out there like me that have had a desire to pursue something that they previously didn't have the time because of family commitments etc.. Why not take a chance and give it a shot now?
I'm in the process of thinking about changing careers. Let me know if you're having some of those same feelings. There's a John Mayer song on his first CD, Room For Squares, called No Such Thing. It talks about people pursuing "safe" areas for a career etc... Part of the lyrics uses the language "They love to tell you "stay inside the lines". But something's better on the other side." It's taken me some time, but I'm finally fighting off the status quo. How about you?
