The Power of My Now

A new blog post by me is up at Here is a snippet from the entry:

To begin, let me state upfront I’m stealing my idea from my wife.

She writes a dance education blog for a dance Web site and recently wrote an article called “The Power of Now.” While hers focused more on being “present” in the now of a performance, I’m going to take a less creative approach to the word.

For me, now is living in the present, and trying to avoid the “whatifs.” I’ve always hated the whatifs.

What if I did this? What if I did that? What if I made that decision instead?

Each and every day, I have seen people who are drowning in whatifs and I have never wanted to be that person lost in the past. Actually, it was at a very early age that I decided I was going to do my best to avoid their dreaded curse. You only live life right once? So why not see what will happen when you make the leap? So, because of that lifestyle decision, when I do look back, I see an existence full of big decisions, a life of big life-changing choices.
