First Time's A Charm

There’s a First Time for Everything

I’ve been contemplating a blog for quite some time, but often wondered what on earth I had to say that other people would want to read. I mean, my life definitely has a lot of crazy and exciting heading its way, but I didn’t want my blog to turn into a Sweet Valley High “Dear Diary” type of journal.

Then I took a step back and evaluated why my life is entering a phase of crazy and exciting, and realized that it’s because there are so many big Firsts coming my way: getting married, buying a home, heading down a (semi) new career path. . . . .

The more I thought about it, the more it dawned on me that these big Firsts each involved many smaller Firsts and each of those involved even more tiny Firsts. In fact, I bet each one of us experiences several Firsts throughout every day — a new restaurant or type of food, a song you’ve never heard, a different route home from work — that are often taken for granted.

Which brings us back to this blog. It is my intention to share my Firsts with you — movies, restaurants, travels, books, songs and just plain ole’ life experiences. I hope that in doing so, I will inspire each of you to look at the day-to-day actions of your lives and appreciate the things that create your story.

I may provide some opinions or reviews that you don’t agree with and that’s ok. I invite all of my readers to leave comments and engage in conversation with me. I hope you’ll also share some of your Firsts with me.

And that, my friends, is my First post to this blog.

    Firsts is a great topic to talk about. If you can tie strategy, tactics and emotions in with each first, it will really provide perspective to others.

    (Except strategy with new restaurants is probably pushing it…!).

    Look forward to reading.
