Living for Today

So far, 2010 has been really rough. In early February, my ex was violently killed, and on March 26th my Tia Argentina passed away after enduring a 3-month coma. All this tragedy has been devastating; but somehow it has also pushed me to release some of my fears and self-imposed limitations. I find myself wanting to take more chances. I find myself asking: "Why leave for tomorrow what I can do today?"

This new outlook is primarily due to my constant introspection and resilience. No matter what happens in life, I always bounce back. Now I am ready to stop talking the talk and do what I've always said I wanted to do in my career and love life. I am pursuing three things I've often postponed due to doubt and negative thinking: book publishing, performing and online dating.

With that said, I hope you all continue to join me in my journey. I am sure to have a lot of interesting Web encounters, and maybe, just maybe, my future husband will find me (I have a feeling he’s right around the corner). Regardless of the outcome, I know I am ready to take real risks. I refuse to leave this Earth with regrets, and I am focused on living in the present.
