To begin, I kinda want to explain the title to this blog post.  All I have to say is watch this: 

Can't you just imagine me saying that.  Anywho on to the meat of the post.

I'm one for making resolutions, but I am the worst for trying to stick to them.  Another thought to ponder, why do we make resolutions, but fail to follow them?  Why must we wait for a new year to change the way that we do things?  When we tell ourselves that we are going to make some changes to our lives, why don't we start it right then?  For example, last year I told myself that I would start the p90x workout system.  This year I have told myself that I would do the same thing and here I sit, already into the second month of the year and my fat butt hasn't done a thing.  I try not to get wrapped up in things that are trendy and do things because others are doing them, but I know that I need to prioritize my life and that system looks to be the best one to me.  The Human is a funny being.

Another resolution of mine is to be the best Christian Leader of our family.  I have struggled with this for quite sometime because I have always had the mentality to just trust God and let things happen.  Don't shoot me or hate, but that's all that I have ever known.  Now that I am a father, it is so crucial for me to be that example for our son.  Not only is it good for him, but it very good for me as well.  My priorities have got to be God, Family, and whatever else.  This is something that I cannot deviate from.  That's just what it has to be for me to be that great spiritual leader. I have to be careful with everything that I do, say, and act.  I should've been doing this more in my life before we had a child, but I can't bring back the past.  I failed before and will try my best to not to be a failure for our family in the future.

That's my resolutions for the year, but I am sure that I will make more.  As for right now that's what I have to work with and I think that they are some very important ones.  Need to get my health, both spiritually and physically, in check.

Should I start a catchy closing phrase?  I don't know, what do you think?

Giving This Another Try

So I am going to give blogging another try.  I was successful with it, in the past, for maybe a week, but now I have challenged myself to be more open and allow myself to be more vulnerable. 

I follow so many blogs and I am just impressed with how they write and some of things that they say.  It just feels like I am there having a conversation with them. I have never been the best writer.  I have always been self-conscious about it; never wanted anyone but the teacher to read my work when I was school.  It's not that I want to have a style, but I just want.........I don't know what I want.  It will work itself out, as these usually do.

My goal for this, is to show a side of me that many have never seen before and a side that I didn't know that I had.  I plan to lay out my goals in a later blog, but for now I wanted to wet your whistle.  Thanks for taking the time to read this intro.
