I’m working on a new project, but I’m not quite ready to share.  Why?  Well…it’s a secret.  And a pretty big one at that. 

So why do we keep secrets? 

Lots of reasons I suppose.  I know I have my reasons.  And before you get all worried, I’m not talking about keeping secrets from our loved ones.  I keep my family in the loop.  I just don’t always feel ready to share the deep down nitty gritty of my life with everyone else.  Sometimes not even my closest friends.

But I will…when I’m ready.

For now, I’m keeping those secrets.  And even the reason why is a secret. 

I’ve decided that life is pretty complicated sometimes, but it may just be that we make it that way.  It would be so much easier if we simplified, and we can easily simplify if we just reprioritize what is important.  That’s what I’m trying to do, in a nutshell.  I’m trying to see my way to a more simple, more fulfilling existence.  I would very much like to live a long, healthy, and happy life.  What more could anyone ask for?

So that’s the goal for 2011…enjoy life to the fullest without carrying around the heavy baggage.  Sounds easy, but it takes some work.  I’ve even started eating better (except for the brownies the other night.)

And just so you know…the brownies were a secret too, until now.  I guess I just can’t keep a secret for very long.

Until the next time…I’ll be working on that secret project.
