Since February 2019, I've had the privilege of sharing my thoughts with you. What started as a vehicle to settle old scores, quickly became an objective analysis on how one's perception shapes one's reality.
Today is Father's Day. It 's the 30th Father's Day I can actually celebrate as an honoree. It's the 6th Father's Day with my son being an honoree. He'll probably text me his best wishes, which is better than what I'll do for him or anyone else, for that matter.
Don't get me wrong, I think I'm just as sentimental as the next person. It's just that over the years, my true introverted side has moved to the forefront of my being. I know, because I'm married to a true extrovert. In fact, I sometimes cringe when she starts a conversation with a total stranger. That's until she pulls me into the chat and I end up having a good time.
Since February 2019, I've been writing this little blog. Most of the topics were about me growing up and my feelings back then. Most of them were feelings of inadequacy and loneliness, but I would always end the posts with expressions of modern-day gratitude.
That formula served me well since February 2019. However, now is the time to place a pause on this blog which may or may not be permanent. The reason why is that the world around has taken over a bigger piece of my life.
So, after taking a little break to get used to life as a retiree, I'm coming back with a new blog, which I think I'll title "Much More to Say". It will contain musings by me as well as guest bloggers, if I can snag some along the way.
My podcast, "From Grievance to Gratitude" will still be produced, except now will move to a bi-weekly new episode release schedule. I'm hoping that spreading out production of that show will put more meat on the episodes. At least that's my hope.
As I bring this post, and possibly this blog, to a close, I'd like to thank all of you who took the time to read these silly little musings of mine since February 2019. Your "Likes" are greatly appreciated. For me, it's been a blast!
But wait... there's more!
