Can an ordinary person be a hero?  Can everyday life be a grand adventure?

Two years ago, someone told me it was possible to make a living as an independent writer.  I started with nothing but an overactive imagination and a handful of success principles. I have yet to achieve my goal.  Yet I have found that the chase is fulfillment in itself. I look back and see my progress as a person and a writer, and I’m astounded.  It all began when someone told me I could.

My goal with this blog is to share my misadventures, my foibles, and the lessons I’m learning in the hope that you will see that you can. Life is not only lived on the evenings and weekends.  Every day might not be fun, but when spent in pursuit of a dream, they are meaningful, and certainly not boring.

  1. Namaste Geralyn,
    It is not the ‘goal’ that matters but ‘striving to reach the goal’, the journey and what attitude you carry determines the happiness. This is what the great philosopher Swami Chinmayanda had put up in his words to describe the goal and reading your thoughts gave me immense joy.
    It is indeed the positive outlook/attitude toward life makes it beautiful in a whole new way. 🙂
