Moving to My New Blog

I just created my new blog and posted my first entry to it. It's titled Reinventing Myself. That means I won't be posting here anymore. Or maybe not. My new blog is about how I'm seeking to transform myself in a positive way through positive ways of thinking, acting, and seeing the world. So, its scope may not be broad enough to embrace everything I want to write about, and I may still post things here that I can't post there. But I'll be concentrating on my new blog and on the effort to transform myself that that blog represents. So I hope you'll join me over there, and feel free to bring your friends with you.

My New Job

After I lost my job as a medical records clerk, I wrote that I wouldn't post to this blog again until I found a new job. Well, I've found one. No, not THAT kind of job. My new job doesn't pay a salary. But it has the potential to pay enormous benefits. I call it the job of reinventing myself. I adapted this job title from a book I've started reading: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Reinventing Yourself. I intend to do what the book suggests and by the ways it counsels.

One of those ways is to break with the past. Do new things, or do old things in new ways. So, this is my penultimate post to this blog. My final post will simply announce my new blog. I expect to unveil my new blog this weekend. Its purpose will be to chronicle my efforts to reinvent myself using what I call the power of realistically positive thinking and acting. If this blog was about or started out being about nakedly reflecting whatever interested or concerned me at the moment, my new blog will be about what I'm thinking and doing to transform myself into the person I want to be. Everything I write there will have the positive purpose of facilitating that transformation.

And you'll be able to follow my progress and, perhaps, take inspiration from it to reinvent or transform yourself into more of the person you want to be. For I suspect that most of us want to be the best we can be but haven't gotten there yet.
