It is amazing how easily life can become filled with stress. One minute you think you are a care-free soul and the next you are at the bar drinking your troubles away. I am learning there can be a happy medium in life; it isn't easy by any means, but it is worth the attempt. The first time you meet me, maybe even the 2nd or 3rd, you would think to yourself that I am quiet and reserved. However, upon further inspection or follow-on occasions, you would find that I am just someone who enjoys having fun without worrying what others might think about it. Yes, at times, I do let societal stigmas prevent from expressing myself fully, but there are other reasons for that. Because of extenuating circumstances I must be reserved at times, although this is only with the situation calls for such actions. I believe over the coming months I am going to make 2012 the year that I let more people get to know "me" and not worry so much about the little things. As long as I have my health, my amazing wife, and a great bunch of dogs around me, it will be a great year.
I hope you decide to come along for the ride.
