2012 was a really challenging year. At times it almost felt almost overwhelming. I was mentally exhausted and had little interest in what was going on. I needed the time to regroup and to reassess my life and what was happening around me.

And I think I figured things out somewhat. Enough to give me the hope and courage to face 2013 head on, excited and fully recharged.I looked inwards to find what was really important to me, and I decided that instead of delaying it, I should start living life the way I always felt I should.

I cannot explain clearly this new found enthusiasm for life. But it feels almost like being inspired to want to do something more than just living life for the sake of existing. And talking about inspired, this paragraph would best describe the feeling I have for 2013.

” When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds. Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

So welcome to my 2013 blog. Its going to be filled with a whole lot musings as I embark on a personal journey to do what’s right. Hope we’re all going to have a great time learning from one another. I know I am.

Love, Brandon
