Time for a change

For my first act of being productive, I have decided that with changing my outlook and style it was time to change my blog layout. My last layout was sweet and cute, but I wanted something more elegant and refined.

I remember being told when I was younger that a simple revision can mean the world of difference and open new possibilities. I am hoping this is true. I feel that with having a fresh new layout, I will be motivated to once again to pay full attention to my blog. It will inspire me to post more often and be more creative. 

At times I felt that the last layout was too congested. I decided on a 2 column template, hoping it would be less busy. I love my tumblr so I also added a visual of my latest image. If clicked the image will take you to that image's display page.

What do my wonderful followers think of the new change?

October Challenge

"If you don't take the chance to live life, what can you say at the end of it?"
--Naveen Andrews
I failed last month's challenge and let reality continue to crush my dreams. Despite everything slowly getting back on track, I have yet to actually start living life again. I am just going through the motions of each day, but do not actively participate. I wake up at the designated time, go to work, smiled and node when appropriate, go home, and sleep. That is not living! I have begun to fear that straying from this path would lead to everything collapsing again. I did not set any goals for fear of disappointment. I did not attempt any new thing out of fear of failure.

It seems that every day my dreams get farther and farther away. It feel that I am no where near to achieving anything. And I am just not satisfied with the notion that one day I will accomplish my goals. I want to work toward my dream now, but I need to find the motivation first. Life has become a sad, boring routine. But I need to push myself to end the monotony.

I don't want to just survive each day, I want to flourish, grow, and prosper.
