Sweets and Soda

Sweets and Soda I am no longer your play thing. You cannot control me with your sweet taste and addictive personality. I will not succumb to the cravings I have for you at 8am - 5pm. I no longer need you to get me through the day. Our relationship is completely unhealthy and you can't convince me otherwise. NO. . .don't try to tempt me with the diet/low calorie/low fat versions of you. I will not settle for second best. . .you know that. No matter what anyone says frozen yogurt is not better then ice cream, Diet Dr Pepper doesn't have the rich smooth taste of Original Dr Pepper and a Snickers Protein Bar will only make me want a Snickers Candy bar. This is the end of the road for us. I will miss you more then you will miss me, I accept that. Farewell my loves.

My First

This is my re-introduction to blogging. I have been steering clear of all internet related activity lately. Lately meaning the last 6 months. However that is a story in and of its self, and it definitely has a life of its own. Its not a story or a life that I am ready to post to the world yet.
I guess the real question is what am I ready to post to the world? The answer is that I am not certain. See I love to write. I find it very therapeutic. I know I will be able to let go of a lot of anger and heart-ache and I will be able to share a lot of joy and laughter by writing.
I have been doing a lot of self-evaluation and trying to be more pro-active about my life. What I mean is I am sick of sitting on the sidelines and watching life go by. For the first time I want to play. I want feel the wind blow through my hair as I run. I want to be free of the binding fear that I won't succeed. I want to experience the joy of complete disregard for the "consequences" and the "what if's". I want to be ruled by light and not by dark clouds.
I continue to learn that if there is a silver lining it doesn't have to be followed by a cloud. There can be another silver lining after it, even better there can be a rainbow. I am by nature cynical. . .its a very counterproductive way to be. I am amazed at how challenging it is to be a positive person. Part of the more mature me is looking forward to conquering that challenge.
