A New Beginning . . .

There are times in your life where you reach a crossroads. A time where one decision you make will change the direction of your life, and change it. I recently encountered such a point, and I'm happy to say I've made positive changes in my life regarding philosophy, relationships and how to handle stress. So, I'm going to blog about my journey into Zen, mindfulness, meditation and relaxation, and hopefully others can benefit from my ramblings.

So, welcome to Zenthusiasm, a name I've chosen that well represents how I feel towards the entire process - enthusiastic about Zen.

And, if you haven't seen it already, look at some of the sidebar links to other blogs and resources that I have accessed to start my personal progression.

Every quest has a first step. I've taken mine, and I'm interested to see where it takes me.

Not Following Through

On Tynan

There's been a lot of chatter on the comments recently about me not following through, most of it deserved. Throughout my life one of my struggles has been to focus on one thing and follow it through. I used to be totally incapable of it, but over the years have gotten better. There are a lot of things that I have followed through with (my diet, writing this blog, etc.) as well as plenty that I haven't.

Once in a while I feel, for whatever reason, that I've conquered it, and I announce it to the world. While I'm on the topic of admitting faults, another is that I tend to prematurely announce things sometimes. As a reader, you already know that.

I understand your frustration when you read about something I say I'm going to do, get excited about seeing it happen, and then it falls off the radar. If it's any consolation, I'm acutely aware of these things and am similarly frustrated.
