Wow. It has been a long time since I wrote. Too long. Seems like a lot has been going on. I found a new job, left the two jobs I had when I started this blog, and been dealing with day-to-day life.

Like a lot of people, when I reach a place of relative happiness, fall into a comfort zone, I sometimes stop striving. Striving to improve myself, or reach goals that require me to overcome challenges, or to do something that removes me from that comfort zone.

I have to give myself a reality check at those points. Time to kick myself in the ass and remind myself that this isn’t enough. This thing isn’t over. That’s part of why I started this blog. The tasks I was spending my time on were not fulfilling. I wasn’t doing what made me happy.

My new job is much better than the last ones, in a lot of ways.  Many of the stresses I had before are gone. That has allowed me to relax, and I let go of some of the goals I had been actively working towards. My focus shifted. I was immersed in learning this new company and my role in it, learning this new world I had suddenly become a part of.

Now I am working on getting that focus back onto my goals. My writing and artwork were too neglected recently.

Today, I am more settled into this new job, and I won’t have to travel as much in the next few months. I can write and draw with a clearer mind.

So I am back. I’m not dead. This thing isn’t done for me.
