Many look at the first day of the new year as way to begin some sort of endeavor - be it a "photo a day", a "blog a day", etc. etc. etc....
Well, here I go with my own sad attempt to track my progress through 2011 - a year I like to describe as "The Year of Loving Dangerously" (but I assume you got that from the title listed above).
What's it mean? Fuck if I know... but it has something to do with me trying to take on the prospect of love and relationship with new eyes and mindset.
Life post marriage has been a string of first dates, make out sessions, a one night stand or two, and yes even some heartbreak managed to weasel its way in... This will be taken to task in the new year and I will no longer be motivated by the physical... no more hooking up for the sake of hooking up (however, the world is not black & white and I'm sure there will be moments when I fall off the wagon. I promise to be forthcoming if said "moment" occurs... it should make for an interesting read to say the least).
I plan to keep these entries brief - I don't want to labor on too long about what I am experiencing. Short, to the point, and hopefully entertaining to boot. I will do my best to be fair to all parties involved (don't worry, real names will never be used). I plan on taking taking myself to task for any situation I put myself in. At the end of the day this is about me and that is a big part of me trying to sort out a new approach.
The concept I'm toying with? Initially, love needs to be a selfish act - if I'm not selfish initially then I will find myself involved in something out of obligation (not a wise way to go).
So here it goes. January 1, 2011... wish me luck...
