My life is incredible. I have wonderful friends. A great family. A loving husband. I have two jobs in a time when people are struggling to find work. I have a home, a car, and a fridge full of food. I have health, car, renter’s, and life insurance. I am relatively healthy and mentally stable.

Why isn’t that enough?

Because I’m human. Because I’m always striving for more. Because good enough never is. Because there are things that are not the way I would want them. Because there are things that I want that I do not have.

So what am I waiting for?

Leverage. When does it get to the point when I HAVE to make a change? When does standing still become too painful? What is it going to take for me to move forward?

I keep talking about taking action. Now I need to find the leverage and the motivation to stop talking and start doing. Wish me luck?

I turn 30 on Saturday. My parents sent me a card saying I shouldn’t let that make me neurotic. Well, I was not planning on becoming neurotic, but hey, if that’s what most people do… 😉

30 years on this globe, and what have I got to show for it?

A Bachelor of Arts degree in English – Creative Writing from Denison University.

Three published short stories.

Nearly eight years at Barnes & Noble Bookseller, Inc.

A wonderful husband.

A great family, including two nieces and a nephew(yeah, they’re not my work, but they are adorable).

A lot of good friends, many great friends and a handful of Best Friends.

A gaming group that meets every Tuesday – rain, shine or snow.

A body, that even on my worst days, is doing far better than it used to do on its best days.

The basic essentials of life taken care of without too much thought.

A Prius whose gas mileage is a godsend, even when I run around Columbus at highway speeds.

Somewhere over 150 pieces of pewter.

More books and DVDs than I care to count most days.

A two bedroom townhouse apartment in a decent neighborhood.

Happiness, Love and Support.
