I was 43 years old when a spiritual advisor helped me to define my problem. Expectations! We were about 5 1/2 hours into a discussion when, with great exasperation, he proclaimed, "Dude, you're unreasonable expectations of everyone in your life is killing you!"

He went on to explain to me that seemingly no one in my life had ever lived up to my expectations, including me! You had disappointed me. I had dissapointed me. Satisfaction in this life would be near impossible if I could not take a real hard look at the simple idea of my expectations of you and me.

I'm now 48 years old and my problem is Expectations! But there has been growth. At least I know it now. And when you fail to meet my expectations and I fail to meet my expectations, I can remind myself that we are all just God's kids and that maybe I should give you and me a little break.

Why Now?

I've always kinda felt like you bloggers were the very definition of self-centeredness! I'm right! You are! However, for some time now, I've kicked around the idea of creating a blog. It's perfect for me. I truly am the definition of self-centered. Every morning when I wake up, I immediately think, "I wonder what this day has in store for me!" True statement. I may not be much....but I'm all I think about!

So, the time is now! Not sure why! Don't really care! All my friends are bored to tears with me. They have heard it all. And you know what? I'm bored to tears with me, too!

So, I have determined that the time is right to start my blog! I can just talk of my restlessness and irritability in here and send it off into cyber-space. The few folks who have to listen to it daily will be relieved that I have found an alternative forum. And after all, it's cheaper than therapy!
