Finding the heavy bag …

Finding the heavy bag …

Whether its writing a blog piece after weeks of not touching the keys of one’s laptop, throwing jabs at the mirror after having been away from the gym or finding one’s way back to any of the myriad of things that are important but have seemingly slipped away, all it really takes are those first steps.

In my case it feels as if I’ve been in a mighty slog!

Okay sure, I’m working full-time and hitting PT three days a week for a couple of hours plus, not to mention family, the high school hunt with my daughter and the fact that she just turned 13, but that’s just part of life.  What happens is it gets in the way of those parts of one’s life that count outside of the everyday stuff or the intrusions of say a Hurricane.

So what I’m up to now is finding my way back to the heavy bag. In this case, the heavy bag of whaling on my keys to write the words of daily blog pieces and the words of chapters that’ll eventuate in the completion of my book on the history of women’s boxing.

As things go, I’m in clover–I have health, the blessings of a great kid and loving husband, oh yeah, and a great job–what I also I have is the chance to share it all with you.

Today marks day one of fighting my way back with the hope that all of you are similarly blessed with the opportunity to work it out on the bag.

Thanks for listening!
