The First Post

It’s always a little intimidating.

The first few words you post on a brand new blog.

There is always a sense of excitement, hope and possibility.  Maybe a bit of dread.  A sense of exposure.  Some pressure.

But you’re driven to do it anyway.

In this space, I plan to document my personal Happiness Project.  I was inspired after reading Gretchen Rubin’s book of the same name earlier this year.  I’ve chosen a focus area to explore for each of the next twelve months, and if you choose to follow along, this is where you can read about my successes and failures along the journey.

I’ve chosen the title “Forty-One Project” because this blog will cover my forty-first year of life and during this time I’d also like to lose 41 pounds.  I’ll talk more about the weight later, but for right now, I’d like to extend a hearty welcome to you.  I hope you’ll hang around.

Patience
