Every day is a new today…

Though I could reflect on the past year, to be honest with you, it isn’t something that I’d like to think about or repeat any time soon. Though there were joyous moments, the trials and tribulations seemed to outweigh the good no matter how hard I tried to lay them to rest. I’ve decided that I’m hopping in my car and driving away, not looking in the rear-view, only holding on to the fond memories that were made and the lessons that were learned.

It’s time to start anew, not just today on New Year’s Day, but each and every day. Life is a beautiful yet painful journey with no guarantee of tomorrow. With that being said, every day is a chance at a fresh start or a new beginning, not just today. Make every day your today.

Wake up in the morning with the eyes of a child and go to sleep at night holding on to the little joys that every today brings to you. Drive away and leave the bad of today in your rear-view, no matter how impossible it seems to be to escape. Hold on to the lessons learned from that bad, but go about your new today without bearing the burden of the bad. Every today is a new beginning and that’s something that should not be forgotten no matter how much todays of the past have brought you down.

I wish each and every one of you a plethora of todays full of life, of health, of happiness, and of love.

Happy Today…with love from me.

And so it begins…

I’ve been meaning to blog for some time now, not for an audience necessarily, but for me.  I just haven’t had the time or focus – okay – I was just being lazy.  Not anymore – I’m here to stay, so I feel an introduction is in order.

I’m the suburban ninja, a moniker given to 11 years ago by a friend of mine due to my stealth, cunning, and my ability to kick life in the ass.  Right now I’m holding steady at 35 and I live in central Pennsylvania.  I’ve been married, both happily and unhappily, for 14 years.  I have two sons, one who just turned 16 and another who is 6.  I’m currently a student of Psychology as well as a student of life.  I’ve had enough experiences in my half-life to write a hundred books, but figured I’d write a blog instead.

Though this feels much like an introduction on a dating site and was rather bland, I hope that you stick with me and see what I have to offer.  Together we can make this a kick ass journey.
