I set up this account months ago but have been stuck ever since as to what would make an appropriate topic for my first blog post. It was a lot of pressure, like the first post had to be something incredibly special. I need to get over that and just start writing. So here is my first post. There, pressure released. I just returned from 12 days at sea. Things are different now. New beginnings. Yet another chance to get my shit together and live this life the way I want to. Here’s hoping I’m strong enough to do just that. This time feels different.
